KENNEWICK, Wash. - Washington State's bowl hopes were slim to none, and slim has just left town. After Tuesday's round of bowl invites, all six Pac-10 slots are now spoken for. USC will most likely be in a BCS Bowl. The other Pac-10 teams now know their destinations.
Oregon meets BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl December 21. UCLA meets Florida State in the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco Dec. 27.
The Holiday Bowl, December 28 in San Diego, features Cal and a Big 12 team yet to be named. Oregon State heads to the Sun Bowl in El Paso on Dec. 29th. Their opponent will be a Big 12 or a Big East Team.
WSU lost their last three games to finish the year 6-6. Not having seven wins cost them a shot at the at-large Poinsettia Bowl, which today selected 7-5 N. Illinois to face 9-2 TCU. All other bowl slots remaining are promised to other conferences.
Barring some unforseen event, WSU's season is over.
