The Redshirts, an all-black college football program that played in the mid-1980s, is set to return to the college football landscape, this time in a new format.
The Washington Post reports that the organization’s first game will take place at the new Washington State Cougars’ home stadium in Pullman, Washington.
The new Cougars will be led by the now-retired Mike Leach and will be coached by former Texas head coach Matt Campbell.
The Cougars, who won four conference championships during Leach’s tenure in Pullmen, Washington, will play their first home game at a new Husky Stadium in Tacoma, Washington in 2017.
In January, Leach announced the team’s new stadium would be called Husky Bowl Stadium, which he said would be “the perfect stadium for this team to be the best they can be.”
The Huskies are currently hosting the USC Trojans in the Husky Kickoff Game on Saturday, November 22 at 7:30 p.m.
The Husky Invitational Tournament will take over the Huskies home field at the Huskie Stadium in Pullmans, Washington on Saturday December 3.
