Washington State Cougars -7

The MAC Conference has pretty much dominated this bowl season however this Washington state team as a replacement comes into this game as a large favorite. With a lack of preparation for the Chippewas, I do see Central Michigan keeping it close however coming up short. Washington State wins 38-28.
