On Sunday afternoon the Cougs began their game week preparations for Saturday's New Mexico Bowl against Colorado State in Albuquerque.
Mike Leach is trying to make it as normal a week as possible for his guys, with their typical day off Monday and a Tuesday practice. However, following their early session Tuesday they will board a plane for Albuquerque.
There is nothing normal about this process for a WSU team that hasn't been to a bowl game since 2003. For the players it is a new and exciting opportunity, and they know the business of winning a seventh game against the Rams is the priority in the coming days.
Kickoff is Saturday at 11 a.m. (PT).
