The Washington Huskies are currently projected to face the Boise State Broncos in the Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 22, according to CBS Sports.

Washington's projected matchup against Boise State is a bit interesting, too, as the teams are set to face each other in 2013 in what will be the debut of the Huskies' new stadium following $250 million in renovations.

The Las Vegas Bowl is reserved for the fifth-best team in the Pac-12 to play the best team in the Mountain West, which is usually Boise State. Under normal circumstances, the Huskies would be heading for the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl but since CBS Sports has Oregon in the BCS National Championship, Oregon State heads to the Rose Bowl and every other team gets bumped up.

As for the rest of the Pac-12, CBS Sports sees USC in the Alamo Bowl, UCLA in the Holiday Bowl, Stanford in the Sun Bowl, Arizona in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl and Arizona State in the New Mexico Bowl.
