BOISE, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Boise State is headed back to the Las Vegas Bowl for the fifth time this decade.
The Broncos made the announcement Saturday they'll face the University of Washington.
The teams last met in this game back in 2012, when then No. 20 BSU edged out the Huskies, 28-26.
It's a bittersweet occasion for fans of Chris Petersen who coached at Boise State for eight years and spent the last six at Washington.
He announced earlier this month that he is stepping down as the head coach of UW and will take a leadership advisory position at the university.
BSU at 12-1 on the season, just won the Mountain West Championship for the fourth time, most ever of any affiliated school.
Washington is coming off a down season at 7-5, following three consecutive years participating in New Years six bowls.
The Mitsubishi Motors Las Vegas Bowl is coming up on the 21st with kick-off slated for 5:30 MT.
The game will be nationally televised on ABC.
