Washington State will face Michigan State in the 40th annual Holiday Bowl Dec. 28 at San Diego County Credit Union Stadium in a matchup of 9-3 teams, organizers announced.

Michigan State will be making its first Holiday Bowl appearance and first appearance in California since the 2014 Rose Bowl Game when it defeated Stanford, 24-20.

You might be scratching your head, but Harbaugh's comments were apparently a response to Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio. This year, the Spartans are 16th and Cougars 18th in the latest college football playoff rankings.

But because Wisconsin landed in the Orange Bowl, the Big Ten could not fill the Citrus Bowl, Michigan State's long-projected destination.

The Nebraska starters were a combined 11-44 from the field as the Huskers shot just 27% despite hitting 10-22 from 3-point range while Michigan State was 47% overall but only 5-19 from long-range.

The Spartans completely reversed last season's 3-9 record with a young team that wasn't expected to do much.

"Mike's our coach today and we expect him to be our coach for the bowl game", Johnson said Sunday during a conference call. "I'll just continue to concentrate on beating MI (and) let things sort of sort out".

Johnson has only exchanged text messages with Leach since reports emerged Thursday about the possibility of WSU's coach leaving. The game will be televised nationally on FS1.
