Could WSU be headed to Hawai’i?

UPDATE: Reports are coming in that Oregon State will take on Boise State in the Hawai'i Bowl. Fight Hunger Bowl directors told the Spokesman-Review this week that they will not be selecting the Beavers, leaving only the New Mexico Bowl as a possibility.

That could be the case according to Sports Illustrated's Stewart Mandel.

The Hawai'i Bowl is one of the games run by ESPN. Earlier this week WSU athletic director Bill Moos told the Spokesman-Review that he was lobbying his contacts at ESPN to try and get WSU into one of those bowls, should the Cougars not receive a bid from a Pac-12 affiliated bowl.

While it is looking increasingly possible that Oregon will be invited to a BCS bowl, even in that scenario it would still technically be possible for the Cougars to need an at-large invitation to play in a bowl game. If that's the case, it looks like Hawai'i could be their destination.

UPDATE: As SpectreCoug points out in the comments, the post previously incorrectly listed bowls as being operated by ESPN. I was working off the wrong list and apologize.
