SAN DIEGO - As the WSU Cougars prepare to take on Michigan State in the Holiday Bowl, Mike Leach says that the Cougs' less than stellar performance in last year's Holiday Bowl shouldn't affect this year.
“I think they're always motivated,” said Leach. “They're two separate games, two separate teams, so I don't really think it has anything to do with it.”
Michigan State and Minnesota may be two separate teams, but they both play similar on offense.
They're going to smash you right in the mouth - something this defense is going to have to put up with.
“They're a little different,” said Leach. “They remind me of Utah and Stanford in some ways. They're not exactly like that but they have some power run philosophies like Stanford.”
