The Washington State Cougars had opportunities to beat Air Force in the Cheez It Bowl Friday night, but they didn’t capitalize on enough red zone chances, and gave up a ton of yards on the ground.  The loss to the Falcons, felt a lot like the entire season for the Cougs.

After the game Mike Leach summed up this season as up and down.  He also said he thought the Cougs had a chance to be much better than the record turned into.

Cougs end the 2019 season with a 31-21 loss in the Cheez It Bowl

With the loss the Cougars failed to win back-to-back bowl games which would have been a first for the program.  At 6-7, they also finish the season with a losing record for the first time since 2014.
