USC vs Fresno State in Las Vegas Bowl

USC vs Fresno State in Las Vegas Bowl 


With BCS bowl now out of the question and USC losing today, this a very likely bowl for both team. 

I'm interested in attending.  What about you guys?

Re: USC vs Fresno State in Las Vegas Bowl 


I'm going.  Look at it this way: if someone told you before the season began that Fresno State and USC would be meeting in the Las Vegas Bowl, we all would've jumped at that.

CBSSports.com just updated their bowls and that's what they have:  Fresno State vs. USC, Dec. 21 in Vegas.

Re: USC vs Fresno State in Las Vegas Bowl 


vegas bowl will choose between USC, UW, Arizona
MWC team of choice.....

USC vs Fresno St is looking more and more likely
quite possibly even if Utah St were to win...... since Utah St played USC earlier this year

Vegas is not passing up USC, that is for sure.

the only possible opponents are Fresno and Boise

So why wouldn't Boise be their choice? They (LV Bowl) picked Boise last year & probably will again.

Would end up like Washington v. Boise last year. They played in the Vegas Bowl, and then started the next season against each other. Makes for an interesting story. Would love to take down U$C with Carr and team, since we might not have as good of a chance next year.

Because Boise has 4 losses. They'll probably end up in the Potato Bowl or New Mexico Bowl

IT doesn't matter that Boise has 4 losses; they are bowl eligible & the LV Bowl reps are free to pick whomever they want. It wouldn't surprise me if we got passed over.

It really sucks now seeing updated bowl lists with us in the LV Bowl...so many were confident we'd be in the BCS...it actually breaks my heart seeing us back to status quo...

Boise isn't going to the Las Vegas Bowl. No chance at all.  During both the BSU-UNM game & SDSU-UNLV game tonight, the announcers mentioned that the Broncos are, in all likelihood, are headed to the Poinsettia.  If that falls thru, they're going to the Armed Forces Bowl vs. Navy.  And they also mentioned that Fresno State is most likely headed to Vegas win or lose Saturday.

Zk just to let you know we wouldn't be a bcs team even with a win. Look at all that took place outside of our game. Here you go:

Rutgers lost to uconn
Sdsu lost to unlv
Iowa beat Nebraska
Byu beat Nevada

With those results we weren't moving past Niu in any way shape or form. So while it may suck to see Fresno in the Vegas bowl that's where we were going to be slotted anyway.

Yep even if we won we wouldn't have passed NIU with Iowa winning and Rutgers losing. UNLV winning actually helped us. But not enough.

I want to go but I don't like to think what Kessler and Lee will do to our defensive backs. What is the word on LJ?

ZK so many on the board thought if we went 12-0 we would automatically get a BCS bowl. You may have thought so too. But that is not how it works. As I have posted before I have seen Boise left out 2 or 3 times before. Those who are saying we would not had gone had we defeated SJS are correct, IMO. 

So look at the Las Vegas Bowl as a primary Bowl we were going to go anyway and not as a second option.

What happens if two PAC-12 teams make BCS bowls? Let's say Stanford to the Rose Bowl and then Oregon gets selected as an at-large for a BCS bowl. That pushes each PAC-12 team up a slot and makes it very likely we don't play USC in the Las Vegas Bowl. Definitely a good possibility this scenario happens. Also thank you for providing us your slanted definitions of "Patriot" and "Radicalism."

Oh, I didn't mean to be.  It's just that I perceive this to be a board for discussion of a gladiator-like sport.  Russell Crowe and blood and guts and fractures and concussions and whatnot.  Not sure why anyone would choose to feminize the discussion.   I should probably choose to be more sensitive to ZK's broken heart and offer to wipe the mascara smear from her cheek.

Really?  I don't think so.  It's very exciting to me.  In fact, our better shot is in the bowl game rather than next season.

Well, I guess both USC and Fresno State fans will flock to Las Vegas, I mean, just counting all the die hards here on the forums, there should be at least 10,000 from each side.


So maybe about 20,000 fans in total there?

If it's Vegas and if Fresno State wins the MW title Saturday, I would bet the Bulldogs bring 15,000 to 20,000 fans themselves, if not more.  It would easily be twice the amount of red we saw in San Jose.

RE: USC vs Fresno State in Las Vegas Bowl 


I doubt Las Vegas wants to see Boise State there for four straight years even if they do bring a lot of fans. Fresno State and USC would be a very entertaining game. The way UCLA took USC apart with sideline passes last night would bode well for Fresno. The downside is Fresno doesn't have near the defense that UCLA has and would have a lot of trouble stopping USC's offense. It would make for an entertaining high scoring game.

USC on the other hand may remember the embarrassing defeat Fresno put on them years ago in the Freedom Bowl and may want no part of Fresno on a neutral field.
