 ISLETA PUEBLO, N.M. (AP) - Two emerging programs are preparing to kick-off the college football postseason after years of not reaching a bowl game.
Colorado State (7-6) will meet Washington State (6-6) in the New Mexico Bowl on Saturday in Albuquerque in what is expected to be a showdown of two high-flying offenses.
Colorado State Rams coach Jim McElwain says he respects the high-powered offense of Washington State and has studied a season's worth of footage to prepare.
Mike Leach, Washington State's second-year coach, says Colorado State really doesn't have any weaknesses and the Cougars will have to play the best overall game.
Both coaches said a bowl victory could really boost their programs' visibility and help with recruiting.
