Boise State is 5 1/2 point favorites.
I'm picking Washington. And it has nothing to do with the matchup. I think bowl games are all about who wants to be there and who is more motivated to play. I think that's more important then talent and coaching when it comes to most bowl games.
If Washington had won the Apple Cup I would be picking Boise State in this game, because I would think Washington would have a hard time getting hyped to play Boise State after playing Lsu, Oregon, Stanford, etc. But since they lost the Apple Cup I think they'll be motivated to get that bitter taste out of their mouths.
Boise State meanwhile has been to the Las Vegas Bowl 3 straight years and i'm sure they were hoping to be BCS busters so I have a feeling they might have a hard time getting up for this one.
Washington 28 Boise State 24.
