Washington State's football season opener at Brigham Young has been moved up two days to Thursday night, Aug. 30, to accommodate a telecast by ESPN at 7:15 (PDT). The game marks the WSU debut of coach Mike Leach, who returns to college football after a two-year hiatus.

Earlier, the Cougars' game at UNLV was moved up one day to Friday, Sept. 14, for an ESPN showing.

Baseball

Washington picked up its eighth shutout victory of the season, setting down Portland 3-0 on Wednesday at Husky Ballpark. Robert Pehl was 2 for 2 and Caleb Brown went 2 for 3 for Washington (27-21)

Golf

Western Washington fell four spots to seventh after shooting 3-over-par 291 in the second round of the NCAA Division II championships in Louisville, Ky.

The Vikings are 12 shots behind leader Chico State in the team standings. The top eight teams after 54 holes advance to match play Friday.

Dylan Goodwin (1-under 71) leads WWU in medalist play, tied for 18th.

• Everett's Renee Skidmore finished second in the CN Canadian Women's Tour event in Richmond, B.C. She shot an even-par 144 for two rounds and finished a shot behind amateur Jisoo Keel.

Notes

• Washington's Kimi Pohlman and Kaitlin Inglesby were named to the all-Pac-12 softball first team.

• The Washington State men's basketball team has signed center James Hunter of Sydney, Australia, to play next season. The 6-foot-9, 250-pound Hunter averaged 13 points and 6.8 rebounds last season at Gillette College of Wyoming.

• Seattle boxer Queen Underwood's hopes of qualifying for the Olympics at the Women's World Championships ended with a 26-25 loss to Norway's Ingrid Egner in a third-round lightweight bout in Qinhuangdao, China.

Underwood's chances to compete in London now depend on an international commission that will select an additional lightweight from the Americas to compete in the Games.
