Washington State University and the University of Washington have agreed in principle to a five-year continuation of the storied Apple Cup football series through at least 2028.

Next year’s match-up will take place on Sept. 14, 2024 at Lumen Field in Seattle, with the following four games alternating between the school’s campuses: 2025 (Pullman), 2026 (Seattle), 2027 (Pullman) and 2028 (Seattle). Terms of the agreement are still being finalized.

“The Apple Cup is one of the oldest and most renowned rivalries in all of collegiate athletics,” said WSU President Kirk Schulz. “For more than a century, fans across the state have been circling the Apple Cup date on their calendars. We are pleased that we will be able to continue this beloved tradition for future generations of Coug fans.”

This year’s Apple Cup on Nov. 25 in Seattle marks the 115th meeting between the schools, a rivalry that began in 1900.
