Iowa State is Alamo Bowl bound to face Washington State

"We also recognize for WSU and the rest of the Pac-12, this is an important bowl season for all of us", Chun said. "A first-class bowl, an opportunity to play a big-time opponent and an opportunity for this program to continue the trend and direction it's gone".

With Washington State's prolific offense and Iowa State's hard-hitting defense preparing for war, it should be an entertaining game.

With the University of Oklahoma playing in the College Football Playoff, where the Sooners will play Alabama, and the University of Texas being selected to a New Year's Six bowl, where the Longhorns will play Georgia in the Sugar Bowl, the next-highest bowl selection for the Big 12 was the Alamo Bowl.

I know we're not going to agree on the Apple Cup, but what about the Pac-12 Championship game?

The No. 22 Wildcats (8-5, 8-1 Big Ten) will face off with No. 17 Utah (9-4, 6-3 Pac 12) in the game, which will be played at SDCCU Stadium on New Year's Eve in San Diego. At No. 18, MSU was the sixth-highest ranked Southeastern Conference team in the final College Football Playoff rankings released on Sunday.

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.

Ohio State will be the University of Washington's opponent in the Rose Bowl on January 1 in Pasadena, Calif., the first time since the advent of the playoff era in college football that the game will revert to its traditional matchup of conference champions.

What a novel idea: The Pac-12 champs will play the Big Ten champs in the Rose Bowl. 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. "I have always had tremendous respect for Coach Ferentz and his Iowa teams". "We came close a few times", Meyer said. "We look forward to a great week". Additionally, the Bulldogs are one of only five SEC schools to go bowling in every season this decade. This marks the 11th time these two teams have faced each other with Ohio State holding an 8-3 record.

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.

"There was a really good buzz around our facility today, a lot of excitement", Cyclone head coach Matt Campbell said.
