Rutgers makes Big Ten debut against Washington St

The Associated Press

SEATTLE (AP) Rutgers' debut as a member of the Big Ten Conference will likely be Washington State's farewell to Seattle.

The Cougars open the season with their annual game at Seattle's CenturyLink Field on Thursday night, hosting the Scarlet Knights in their first game after leaving the American Athletic Conference to join the Big Ten.

For Washington State, this could be its final "home" game in Seattle. Washington State no longer needs the revenue bump from playing one of its games around its largest alumni base in the Puget Sound region. The new Pac-12 television contract boosted the finances of every school in the conference and athletic director Bill Moos wants to bring all Cougars games back to Pullman, Washington.
