LAS VEGAS -- Washington of the Pac-12 Conference will play No. 20 Boise State on Dec. 22 in the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl at Sam Boyd Stadium.

The Huskies (7-5) will be making their first appearance in the game against the Broncos (10-2), who will be making their third straight trip to Las Vegas for a bowl game.

First-year Las Vegas Bowl executive director admitted that he and the selection committee had their eye on the Huskies for several weeks.

With the Huskies based in Seattle, travel for their fans will be easy. Alaska Airlines and Southwest Airlines offer several non-stop flights daily between Seattle and Las Vegas.

Washington has never played in the Las Vegas Bowl since it started in 1992.

In an ironic twist, Washington and Boise State will open their 2013 season against each other after finishing this season in the bowl game.
