Alamo Bowl marks disappointing end to great season

Alamo Bowl marks disappointing end to great season

"We also recognize for WSU and the rest of the Pac-12, this is an important bowl season for all of us", Chun said.

Las Vegas oddsmakers like Washington State's chances of picking up a win in the Valero Alamo Bowl, but they also expect that a December 28 game between the Cougars and Iowa State will come down to the wire.

Remember the Alamo Bowl?

This will be Washington's 15th appearance in the Rose Bowl, dating back to 1924. "I know the job that Urban (Meyer) does and how he coaches". Led by star quarterback and potential Heisman finalist Dwayne Haskins, the Buckeyes rank eighth nationally in scoring (43.5 points per game), 12th in yards per play. At No. 18, MSU was the sixth-highest ranked Southeastern Conference team in the final College Football Playoff rankings released on Sunday. If the proper targeting call had been called late in the fourth quarter of the USC game in September, the Cougars probably would have beaten the Trojans. But Petersen's team wasn't fully satisfied with its season, which included an opening loss to Auburn and two defeats in three games during October. There was one other time that I thought we were going, and we didn't. With the exciting season we had, fans will have to sit back and fume as WSU takes on Iowa State on December 28 in San Antonio, Texas.

Meanwhile, the Utes lost their first two conference contests but rebounded to win the Pac-12 South and earn a slot in the conference title game.

When the guys in Vegas sized up the matchup, I can see why they set the line at 6 1/2, but Iowa State will likely be the more excited team to be there.

The Cats started the season with a 1-3 record, but then rebounded - despite a winless nonconference slate - to win eight straight Big Ten games and earn the Big Ten West crown. "I'm looking forward to competing with my teammates".

I'm disappointed in the Cougars' consolation prize, and I never thought I'd say that about a postseason game in San Antonio.

"There was a really good buzz around our facility today, a lot of excitement", Cyclone head coach Matt Campbell said. Despite having a worse record than WSU, Florida made the Peach Bowl and Louisiana State made the Fiesta Bowl, leaving the Cougars to face an 8-4 team in the Alamo Bowl.

Previously WSU has played in the Rose Bowl (1916, 1931, 1998, 2003), the Holiday Bowl (1981, 2003, 2016, 2017), the Aloha Bowl (1988), the Copper Bowl (1992), the Alamo Bowl (1994), the Sun Bowl (2001, 2015) and the 2013 New Mexico Bowl.
