SPOKANE, Wash. -

Gonzaga will try to do Wednesday night what no other team in school history has done before. The Zags have a chance to begin the season a perfect 9-0 for the first time ever.

The Bulldogs are in for a tough road test, as they head south on Highway 195 to take on in-state rival Washington State. The Zags are the favorite on paper, but they know what the Cougars can do. Washington State won the game in 2010 – the last time the two teams played in Pullman.

As the saying goes, in rivalry games all bets are off.

"I remember it really well," said senior Elias Harris said of that game at Beasley Coliseum. "Embarrassing, I would say, it didn't feel good at all."

"We're a different team than what we were back then," said guard Kevin Pangos, who was not around to feel the sting of a loss to WSU. [The coaches] haven't brought it up too much, but we don't want to lose. Straight up – we don't want to lose."

Pangos said the rivalry with Washington State is a tense one. Does it rank up there with Saint Mary's of the West Coast Conference? Probably not, he said. But it is a game the Zags definitely want to win.
