2013 New Mexico Bowl Preview
The 2013 New Mexico Bowl will be played on Saturday, December 21st at 12:00 PM CST between the Washington State Cougars and the Colorado State Rams.Both the Cougars and Rams are looking to end the season on a high note, as both schools are trying to get back to a higher level of success they were at not long ago. Washington State started the season with a close loss to Auburn, who are now in the BCS National Championship. They beat USC, but three consecutive losses to Oregon State, Oregon and Arizona State moved the Cougars down the Pac-12 ladder. Cougar QB Connor Halliday threw for over 4100 yards in Mike Leach's offense, and he'll try to torch Colorado State this bowl season.
The Rams started the season 1-3 after losing to Alabama in Week 4 of the season, but since then have turned things around. Wins over Nevada, New Mexico and Air Force over the last four weeks have made them bowl eligible, and an 8-win season would go a long way in putting the belief back into Colorado State fans. Kapri Bibbs is the biggest contributor on offense, putting up over 1500 yards of offense and score 28 touchdowns on the ground. Washington State will have their hands full containing him.
