What's With the Wacky Start Times for Weekday Games? The rest of the season has two 6:00 PM starts, UCLA and Washington. If you live in Highlands Ranch or work in the Tech Center, can you even get to Boulder for a 6 PM start without leaving work way early? WSU is a 7:30 start. I don't know what the heck is up with that. ASU starts at 9:00 PM! You'd think the highest interest games in terms of TV would be UCLA and UW, so why start them at 5 PM in LA and Seattle? I looked at Wisconsin to compare, and every weekday game starts at 8 PM local time. Did the PAC 12 hire the scheduler who does the World Series games?
