In a school press release, Leach said "We are incredibly excited to have the opportunity to play Michigan State in the Holiday Bowl".
It doesn't seem likely that Michigan State's Mark Dantonio and Michigan's Jim Harbaugh will be exchanging Christmas cards this years. "Congrats on turning around a 3-9 team, plagued with off field issues".
Harbaugh, of course, is referring to the 2016 season in which the Spartans finished with a 3-9 record, including a loss to MI, and the numerous off-the-field problems MSU has had over the past year or so, including having multiple players kicked off the team.
But because Wisconsin landed in the Orange Bowl, the Big Ten could not fill the Citrus Bowl, Michigan State's long-projected destination. Washington State has scored at least 30 points eight times. WSU hadn't publicly addressed the rumors before Sunday, when Johnson spoke with reporters on the phone to discuss the Holiday Bowl. 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.
The Cougars are making their second straight and fourth overall appearance in the Holiday Bowl.
Tickets for the 2017 Holiday Bowl may be ordered through wsucougars.com later this afternoon (Sunday, Dec. 3). The game will be televised by FS1. Fans may also call the Cougar Ticket Office at 1-800-GO-COUGS starting at 9 a.m., Monday morning.
