Consider it an alternate version of the Rose Bowl in this matchup of runner-ups from the Big Ten and Pac-12 conferences. It’s the Holiday Bowl in San Diego featuring the No. 22 Northwestern Wildcats out of the Big Ten and the No. 17 Utah Utes from the Pac-12. Both teams exceeded expectations this season, especially the Wildcats and quarterback Clayton Thorson. The Utes hope to have Tyler Huntley back under center.
