The Washington State flourished as the Cougars held off Miami for a 20-14 win.

Jim Allen, Tyler Tjomsland and I were in El Paso to witness WSU's first bowl win since 2003. Our coverage of the event includes my game story, Jim's story about WSU's departing seniors, our notebook and Tyler's photo gallery.

We've also got postgame video interviews with Mike Leach, Luke Falk, Darryl Paulo and Jamal Morrow.

Stefanie Loh has a story from the game and CougCenter's Brian Floyd reflected on the Cougars' season in this story. And here is the Hurricanes perspective, courtesy of the Miami Herald.

The UCLA Bruins became the first Pac-12 team to lose its bowl game this offseason. … Washington rode its freshman running back to a win.
