Cougar Bowl Heritage Spans Nearly a Century

The Cougar football program enjoys a rich heritage of bowl participation, beginning in 1916 with the first Rose Bowl and continuing through 2003 when Washington State defeated the Texas Longhorns 28-20 in the Holiday Bowl.

The Cougars have developed into a college football powerhouse in the past decade, as demonstrated by four bowl appearances—including two Rose Bowls—in the last ten seasons. And the future looks bright for more bowl games in the years ahead.
