Mountain West Conference winners Boise State Broncos (12-1) travel to Sin City to lock horns with the Pac-12 Washington Huskies (7-5) on Saturday at Sam Boyd Stadium in the Mitsubishi Motors Las Vegas Bowl.
In Boise State, Washington head coach Chris Petersen gets the last opponent he would’ve wanted for his last game as a college football head coach. Peterson was Boise State’s head coach from 2006 to 2013.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Petersen is more excited about the opportunity than the opponent.
“Love going to Las Vegas,” Petersen said in a news conference Sunday, the Seattle Times reported. “Been there a few times and they do a great job and it’s an awesome location for fans. The other thing is just being an early bowl game. Sometimes these things can just drag on for a long time. So it’s one of the rare (early) bowl games. So we’ll go prepare, be ready to play.”
“Obviously, personally speaking, there’s a lot of other teams that I’d like to be playing for this last time. But it is what it is, and it’s interesting how sometimes these things work out.”

The players to watch are the quarterbacks, Washington’s Jacob Eason and Boise State fifth-year senior Jaylon Henderson. The latter spent the back half of the season subbing in for freshman sensation Hank Bachmeier, who’s been out with a mysterious hip injury.
Also of note, the Seattle Times reported that Petersen announced junior tight end Hunter Bryant and senior left tackle Trey Adams will not play—likely to preserve their NFL draft stock.

How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels. While select NFL and college football games (on Fox, FS1, and FS2) are no longer on Sling, you can still catch Fox games with AirTV.

Las Vegas Bowl: Why it matters
It will be the poetic homecoming and curtain call for Huskies head coach Chris Petersen’s college football coaching career—at least for the time being—as he transitions into an administrative role at Washington. Known for putting Boise State on the map, as a mid-major-turned-major bowl game giant-slayer, Petersen could not get a better send-off than this.
