From Pullman -- The Pac-12 championship game is today. Because the winner is going to the Rose Bowl either way, it does not really matter who you root for as the game should have no impact on WSU's bowl situation. Maybe a Stanford win would be a bit better as Oregon is more likely to jump Arizona State than Stanford in the BCS standings ... But WSU fans should root for Texas today ... We've got an update on WSU's bowl situation in today's paper ... Boise State's interim coach is a WSU alum ... Micaela Castain of the WSU women's soccer team has been named a second-team All-American.
We'll have a live chat at noon to talk about Pac-12 football and WSU's bowl situation.
