(Neb)-Huskers Fall To #3 Michigan State

Washington State interim athletic director John Johnson fully expects that Mike Leach will be on the sideline with the Cougars when they square off with Michigan State for the Holiday Bowl on December 28 in San Diego (6 p.m., FS1).

On Sunday, the bowl game slate was revealed and it was announced that Michigan will be playing in the Outback Bowl on January 1, while Michigan State, who finished with a better record than the Wolverines AND beat them head-to-head, will be playing in the Holiday Bowl on December 28.

Leach will be taking the Cougars to their fourth bowl game in his six-year stint as the WSU coach - and the fourth in the last five years.

Third-ranked Michigan State never trailed in rolling to an 86-57 win over Nebraska in the Big Ten opener for both schools Sunday afternoon.

The Nebraska starters were a combined 11-44 from the field as the Huskers shot just 27% despite hitting 10-22 from 3-point range while Michigan State was 47% overall but only 5-19 from long-range.

The City Council proclaimed it "San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl 40th Game Day" on Monday in San Diego. This year's game between Washington State and Michigan State is scheduled for December 28. Miles Bridgers is putting up 15 points and 6.7 rebounds per game to lead the team while Cassius Winston is adding 12.9 points and 7.4 assists per game.

"I just look at it as an opportunity to play in the Holiday Bowl". The game will be televised nationally on FS1.
