In some ways Michigan State and San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl opponent Washington State are very much alike. The Spartans are ranked No. 16 in the College Football Playoff Rankings, just two spots ahead of the No. 18 Cougars. Michigan State will enter the Dec. 28 showdown in San Diego at 9-3, which is the same record as Washington State. Those similarities make for an evenly-matched bowl game — the three-point spread in Las Vegas agrees — and an intriguing showdown that’s hard to predict.
