Gophers Face Washington State Tonight in Holiday Bowl
The Minnesota Golden Gophers (8-4) face the Washington State Cougars (8-4) tonight in the 2016 Holiday Bowl at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego. The Gophers from the Big Ten and the Cougars from the Pac 10 will kickoff at 6 PM CT on ESPN.
The Golden Gophers will be playing without ten players who have been suspended surrounding a sexual assault investigation. The remaining non-suspended players threatened a boycott of the Holiday Bowl claiming the suspended players had been denied due process, but reversed their stance following a meeting with school officials.
Minnesota head coach Tracy Claeys has many predicting his firing after the bowl game -- following the backing of his players surrounding the boycott, in conflict with the Minnesota President and Athletic Director.
In addition to watching the game on ESPN, it can be heard in St. Cloud on AM 1240 WJON.
