Earlier today the Washington State Cougars climbed aboard a chartered airplane and left the frozen confines of the Palouse en route to El Paso, Texas, where in five days they'll battle the Miami Hurricanes in the Hyundai Sun Bowl.
As the team, decked out in their fresh black bowl game sweat suits, stepped off the plane and entered the El Paso International Airport, they were immediately greeted by former Washington State head coach Mike Price, who serves on the Sun Bowl committee, and then serenaded by a local Mariachi band with some holiday cheer.
But, of course, it's not a party until Mike Leach dons a sombrero and attempts to sing in the middle of an airport.
Should be one heck of a week. Go Cougs.
