Rankings from AP Poll

The 2007 Washington State Cougars football team represented Washington State University in the college football season of 2007-2008. The team was led by fifth-year head coach Bill Doba and played its home games at Martin Stadium in Pullman, Washington.

The 2007 Apple Cup was played a week later than normal to allow for both Washington and Washington State to have a bye, as neither had one in 2006. This marked the first time the Apple Cup has been played after Thanksgiving since 1978.[1]

Three days after leading the Cougars to a 42-35 victory in the Apple Cup, head coach Bill Doba was fired on November 26.[2] Doba posted a 30-29 record during his 5 seasons as head coach; and led the Cougars to only 1 bowl game, a 28-20 victory over Texas in the 2003 Holiday Bowl in his first season.
