Looks like Boise State is headed to Las Vegas.
With Nevada taking a slot in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, Boise was looking for the best possible matchup. There was talk about Boise playing Miami in the Sun Bowl, but the Sun Bowl is pretty much set on a Miami vs. Notre Dame game.
So where does that leave Boise? Well the Maaco Bowl in Las Vegas needs to fill a slot because there won't be enough bowl-eligible teams out of the Pac-10, so Boise will fill that spot.
Several sites are reporting this, including the Boise student newspaper .
