Alamo Bowl Matchup: ISU vs. Washington State, Dec. 28th in TX


December 2nd, 2018 by Ric Hanson

Officials say the Iowa State Cyclones (8-4, Big 12) will take on the Washington State Cougars (10-2, Pac-12), Dec. 28th, 8 p.m. Central Time, at the Alamo Bowl, in San Antonio, TX. Top players to watch  include ISU runningback David Montgomery (1,092 yards rushing, 12 touchdowns) and Cougar QB Gardner Minshew, (4,477 yards passing, 36 touchdowns). This will mark the first time the teams have met.

The Cyclones won seven out of their last eight games after a 1-3 start and finished with their best-ever record, 6-3, in the Big 12. The Cougars’ seven-game winning streak — and faint playoff hopes — were dashed in a 28-15 loss to Washington in the Apple Cup on Nov. 23.

Iowa State is making its 13th bowl appearance, and first appearance in the Alamo Bowl. Washington State is making its 14th bowl appearance, and second appearance in the Alamo Bowl.
