Fresno State opened as +4 underdogs against Washington State, but plenty of movement came in on the Bulldogs, boosting them to and favored at many books.

The Cougars’ top two receivers hit the transfer portal and will not play in the game, while their defense coordinator was hired away by Arizona State. Shorthanded Washington State will try to stave off a Fresno State team playing incredibly well under Jake Haener. Under Haener, Fresno State went 6-0 in the Mountain West (1-1 without), but 0-2 against the Pac-12.

This season, the Bulldogs defense kept opposing passing attacks in front of them, limiting them to 6.3 yards per attempt (15th nationally). Wazzu QB Cameron Ward is a high-volume, low YPA quarterback (6.7), limited and bested by high-flying opposing offenses. Defensive coordinator Brian Ward won’t coaching the game after accepting the DC job at Arizona State. Following his departure, three linebackers for Wazzu either entered the portal or opted out of the bowl game.

Fresno State has been solid on both offense and defense, posting top-40 marks in points per drive on both sides of the ball. In their seven-game win streak to close out the year, the Bulldogs averaged 37.7 points per game, including an impressive 30-0 win over a stout defense in Wyoming.

The over/under for this game is set at points.

Notable Opt Outs

Washington State: WR De’Zhaun Stribling, WR Donovan Ollie, LB Daiyan Henley

Last year, the Oregon State Beavers were 6.5-point favorites over the conference champion Utah State Aggies. Utah State went on to not only cover the spread, but win outright, holding Oregon State to just 13 points. The Aggies had to resort to backup QB Cooper Legas after starter Logan Bonner injured his knee. Legas threw a pair of touchdowns in the win.

Oddsmakers expected a more offensive affair, lining a 68-point over/under. With just 37 combined points, the under was never in doubt.


The first and only Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl thus far was played in 2021, where Mountain West Champion Utah State beat Oregon State 24-13.
