BOISE -- The Boise State Broncos (8-4, 5-2) take on the Oregon State University Beavers (6-6, 4-5) on Tuesday at 6 p.m. MST in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii at the Hawaiian Airlines Field at Aloha Stadium.

Boise State's historical success led them to hiring Bryan Harsin as coach.

However, neither Harsin nor quarterback Joe Southwick will at the Hawaii Bowl.

While Harsin focuses on next season, Southwick has been dismissed from the team as Boise State goes for a team-record fifth straight postseason win Tuesday night when it faces struggling Oregon State in Honolulu.

The Broncos (8-4) have reached a 12th straight bowl, but this one will be different. For the first time in that stretch, Chris Petersen won't be on the sideline after he was hired by Washington.

While Harsin was eager to replace Petersen, assistant Bob Gregory will be in charge in Hawaii.

Gregory dismissed Southwick from the team on Friday and sent him home after he was accused of urinating from a hotel balcony in Hawaii. Southwick, who finished the season with a 72.6 completion rate for 1,654 yards and 12 TDs and five picks, took a polygraph test after arriving in Boise in his bid to prove his innocence.

Grant Hedrick is expected to get the start in the bowl but the offense shouldn't suffer. In 12 games this season, he completed 135 of 198 passes for 1,443 yards and 15 touchdowns.

He'll be joined on offense by playmakers Jay Ajayi and Matt Miller.

This will be the eighth meeting between the two teams, Boise State is 3-4 against Oregon State. They're first meeting was in 1986, when the Beavers beat the Broncos, 34-3. Their last meeting was in 2010, when the Broncos beat the Beavers on the Blue, 37-24. The Hawaii Bowl won't be the last of the two teams meeting either, as they are slated to play each other in Corvallis, Oregon in 2016.
