Fresno State cornerback Curtis Riley will not play in the Hawaii Bowl, out with a sprained foot suffered during the Mountain West championship at Boise State.
The Bulldogs’ most experienced cornerback with 19 career starts, Riley started eight games this season before coming off the bench for the past four. The 6-foot, 190-pound senior led the Bulldogs with eight pass breakups and made 53 tackles, which ranks seventh on the team.
Junior Charles Washington and true freshman Malcolm Washington will continue to start for the Bulldogs at the cornerback spots.
Rice is averaging 223.6 passing yards per game, which ranks 70th in the country.
