Huskies to play BYU in Fight Hunger Bowl

From The Seattle Times’ Bud Withers:

As expected, Washington will be named Sunday evening to play in the Fight Hunger Bowl Dec. 27, and Washington State will end a nine-year postseason drought with its selection to the New Mexico Bowl Dec. 21, sources have told The Seattle Times.

UPDATE, 5:47 p.m.: UW confirms it will play BYU in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Dec. 27 at SF’s AT&T Park. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. on ESPN.

Marques Tuiasosopo will coach the Huskies in the bowl game, UW announced.

Pac-12 selections were falling into place after Oregon failed on an 11th-hour bid to reach a BCS bowl for the fifth straight year. With only Stanford reaching that level – going to the Rose Bowl – the rest of the league’s picks went as expected.

The Pac-12’s confirmed picks to its affiliated bowls:

Rose: Stanford (11-2).

Alamo: Oregon (10-2).

Holiday: Arizona State (10-3).

Sun: UCLA (9-3).

Las Vegas: USC (9-4).

Fight Hunger: Washington (8-4).

New Mexico: Washington State (6-6)

Meanwhile, Arizona (7-5) has opted for the AdvoCare V100 Bowl in Shreveport against Boston College, a game matching two of the nation’s top running backs in BC’s Andre Williams and the Wildcats’ Ka’Deem Carey, and some reports say Oregon State may be headed to the Hawaii Bowl to play Boise State.
