Huskies to face Penn State in Fiesta Bowl

Penn State earns New Year's Six bid to Fiesta Bowl to play Washington

PSU beats Hawkeyes 77-73 for 1st win at Iowa since '01

Penn State 13, Washington 10. "We are excited to keep our family together for another month to represent Penn State and the Big Ten Conference".

Eligible Nittany Lion Club Members - online pre-sale requests begin Sunday, Dec. 3, immediately following announcement of Penn State's bowl game and run through Monday, Dec. 4 at 5 p.m.

Penn State will make its 48th bowl appearance and fourth in four seasons since the NCAA lifted the school's bowl ban after the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

The Huskies have a three-headed monster on offense with quarterback Jake Browning, running back Myles Gaskin, and wide receiver Dante Pettis. I'm also excited that our Penn State community will get to gather in Phoenix for the first time in more than 20 years to again celebrate the Penn State family!

The Lions will need to rely heavily on superstar running back Saquon Barkley, who has been their all-purpose workhorse all season. "We can't wait to see our Penn State family descend on Valley of the Sun to passionately support their Nittany Lions!" Photo by: Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports.

The No. 9 Nittany Lions and the No. 11 Huskies were selected today for their third all-time meeting and second in a bowl game. If McSorley can control the game with both his arm and legs, as he has done all year, Penn State has a good chance of emerging victorious.

Penn State last played in the Fiesta Bowl in 1997, beating Texas 38-15.

The Huskies finished their season at 10-2 overall, just like Penn State, and missed out on a berth in the PAC-12 Championship game to Stanford.
