"We're excited about the opportunity to represent the Big Ten in the Holiday Bowl against a great Pac 12 opponent in Washington State. It's always a special moment to play in a bowl game and the week will be a rewarding experience for our players and program," said MSU head coach Mark Dantonio. 

The Spartans will be making their 27th all-time bowl appearance. (11-15 record).
