Bowl game schedule 2012: Boise State, Washington square off in Vegas Dec. 22

Brian Losness-US PRESSWIRE

Beginning on Thursday and heading into the weekend, there are four bowl games to watch this week, with the Southwest's Las Vegas Bowl among the most notable.

The MAACO Las Vegas Bowl figures to be one of the more intriguing games among the four bowl games slated for this weekend.

The Dec. 22 contest will feature the Washington Huskies vs. the No. 20 Boise State Broncos as both teams will make a relatively short trip to the Southwest to finish their respective seasons. Washington finished its Pac-12 season with an in-conference record of 5-4 and finished 7-5 overall.

Boise State had a mediocre year by its high standards, finishing 7-1 in the Mountain West Conference and 10-2 overall. The Broncos have won the last two bowl games in Las Vegas by a combined 55 points against Utah and Arizona State.

The remaining bowl schedule through the weekend is as follows:
