Complete Coverage: New Mexico Bowl 2013

The WSU Cougars return to a bowl game for the first time since 2003 to face the Colorado State Rams in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl, which is scheduled to kick off on Dec. 21 at 11 a.m. PT from University Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The game will be broadcast on TV by ESPN, and the odds say the Cougs are small favorites against the Rams. Is this the first step towards WSU football getting back to where it was a decade ago, when it won 30 games in three seasons?
