11 a.m. at University Stadium

ESPN TV, KIRO 710 AM radio

Long time coming: It’s WSU’s first bowl appearance since 2003, Colorado State’s first since 2008. If the Cougars prevail, it would be their first winning season since ’03.

QB a key: Connor Halliday has thrown 21 interceptions, but he trimmed the number to five over his last four games, covering 228 throws. His ability to make good decisions will be pivotal.

High note: If Albuquerque’s mile-high altitude figures in, CSU will have an edge. But both sides are minimizing it.

Kicker wars: Each team is well-equipped at kicker. Jared Roberts is 17 of 20 on field goals for CSU, including seven of eight beyond 40, and WSU’s Andrew Furney is 15 of 19 and 8 of 11 from 40-plus.

Prediction: WSU 41, Colorado State 30.
