For the first time in 10 years, the Washington State Cougars are going to a bowl game. The team learned yesterday that it will play the Colorado State Rams in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. The Cougs finished the season with 6 wins, making it eligible for post season, however, with a 6-6 record, a bid was far from certain. According to the Spokesman-Review, the Rams are the only college team in the nation to boast both a 3000 yard passer(Garrett Grayson) and a 1500 yard runner(Kapri Bibbs).
The game will be played at 11am on December 21st in Albuquerque. It will be televised on ESPN.
