 LAS VEGAS (AP) - Beyond the common goal of notching another win, No. 20 Boise State and Washington see different opportunities in the Las Vegas Bowl.
Boise State coach Chris Petersen said the Dec. 22 game is a chance to show organizers of other bowls how many fans the Broncos can lure.
``It's a big part of what bowls you are going to go to; they look at who carries the fans. If you bring a lot of fans, those bowls are going to want you,'' he said following a news conference Thursday at New York-New York casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said the bowl could be a ``springboard'' that will help his young team earn wider recognition.
``It's the only game on that day on national television, so for Husky nation, it's an opportunity to get on that national stage,'' he said.
Boise State (10-2) is playing in the Vegas Bowl for the third straight year, having beat Arizona State last year and Utah in 2010.
During the news conference, Petersen gestured to the bikini-clad women behind him and said, ``I think we might be coming here too much when I continue to recognize the showgirls.''
Washington (7-5) is enjoying its third consecutive bowl game and making its first appearance at the Las Vegas Bowl, which is scheduled to be broadcast on ESPN at 12:30 p.m. PST. It's the first Vegas Bowl game scheduled during the day since 2002.
The two Northwest teams are scheduled to meet again next year to kick off the 2013 season in the Huskies' renovated stadium. Sarkisian said he is looking forward to the development of a mini-rivalry.
The two teams have only met one other time, with Washington beating Boise State 24-10 in 2007 in Seattle.
