47 days to Cougar football: What is your ideal bowl location?

If you could travel to any bowl game to watch WSU play, where would you choose?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Picking an ideal bowl game as a fan usually revolves around which game is the best for the team. Which bowl means the best season. If you asked WSU fans what bowl game they would like to attend, I'd wager the majority would pick the Rose Bowl. It has the mystique and history while also needing a very good season to qualify.

For this discussion, however, we're going to remove the mystique and on-field components. Forget about the name associated with the bowl. Instead, the question of the day is what is your ideal bowl game destination. In a perfect world, the Cougars would play a bowl game in _______.

Maybe you are all about some warm weather and would pick a game in Hawaii or Florida. Maybe food tops your travel prerequisites. Maybe you just want to have a good time. Whatever the deciding factor is, what bowl game city would you most like to travel to. Now, you can't just pick any city in the world, you're limited to the list of actual bowl games.

Bowl Game Locations

Albuquerque, N.M.

Las Vegas

Boise, Idaho

New Orleans

St. Petersburg, Fla.



San Diego

Annapolis, Md.


San Francisco

Bronx, N.Y.

Charlotte, N.C.

Orlando, Fla

Tempe, Ariz.

Fort Worth, Texas

Nashville, Tenn.

San Antonio

San Diego

Shreveport, La.

El Paso, Texas

Memphis, Tenn.


Jacksonville, Fla


Tampa, Fla.

Pasadena, Calif.

Glendale, Ariz.


Arlington, Texas

Birmingham, Ala

Mobile, Ala

Operating with that list of cities, I think my choice would be either San Diego or New Orleans. San Diego is one of my favorite cities to visit while a trip to New Orleans would also be a good option. Since we are talking bowls, weather would be somewhat of a factor as well, ruling out some of the cold weather locations. It's close, but I think I'm taking a trip down the coast to San Diego.
