Washington State AD unhappy with Pac-12's 'perception' on Selection Sunday

Washington State AD unhappy with Pac-12's 'perception' on Selection Sunday”

The Bulldogs have played in the Gator/TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville three times, the Orange Bowl in Miami once, as well as appeared in the St. Petersburg Bowl over the last nine campaigns.

The Cyclones and Cougars have never played each other before.

"I have a lot of respect for coach Leach, he's been a guy I have had a lot of respect for from afar for a long time but other than that I know nothing about them", Campbell said of the opponent.

Unfortunately, the Cougars' great season will end with the Alamo Bowl, despite the hopes and dreams that WSU would make it to one of the New Year's Six.

After a wild season that included a Saturday loss against Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game, Northwestern now knows its postseason destination: the Holiday Bowl.

WSU's first loss of the season, a 39-36 defeat to USC, was marred by controversy after a blatant targeting hit on quarterback Gardner Minshew went uncalled deep in USC territory with less than three minutes remaining in the game. "I know the job that Urban (Meyer) does and how he coaches".

"I think it says where we are going, my whole thing going into this year and I think a really huge challenge for this year's football team was to show we weren't a flash in the pan", he said. From where I sat, definitely they deserved to be ranked higher.

"We ended up right where we hoped to be, facing an awesome team in a big-time game that has so much history with this school and this program", Washington coach Chris Petersen said.

"Obviously, being in a temperature-controlled environment is very good for the Air Raid offense", Chun said.

There are a lot of questions as to why the Cougars did not make it to a New Year's Six bowl game when they had such a successful season. But they unexpectedly plummeted five spots to No. 13 in the CFP. The Huskies were at 6-3 in late October, having lost to Cal, their third loss since August, but rallied to claim victory in the next four games, including an upset over rival Washington State in the Apple Cup, which earned them the trip to Santa Clara, leading to another win against the Utes Friday, 10-3.

"I am thrilled for our team and our tremendous group of seniors who have earned the opportunity to go out with a New Year's Day bowl in the state of Florida", Mississippi State first-year head coach Joe Moorhead said in a school release. The Alamo, which gets the No. 1 choice among available Big 12 Conference teams, instead chose Iowa State (8-4). Their selling points include a defense allowing just 22 points a game and a running back, David Montgomery, with 1,092 rushing yards.
