Penn State returns to Fiesta Bowl to play Washington

Posted Декабря 05, 2017

The final College Football Playoff rankings were released Sunday morning.

Penn State coach James Franklin has the Nittany Lions back in a New Year's Six bowl game as they play in the Fiesta Bowl for the first time in two decades, taking on Washington. Kickoff is at 1 p.m. PT.

Fiesta Bowl tickets can be purchased here.

Penn State: RB Saquon Barkley. Browning may not have put up the insane numbers this season that he did a year ago, but the reigning Pac-12 player of the year is still no slouch. He has scored 9 touchdowns with 51 receptions for 501 yards.

The second half was more of the same as Iowa chased down a Penn State team that continued to respond to each Hawkeye score with one of its own to stay ahead.

Penn State is a flawless 6-0 in the Fiesta Bowl. They finished the season strong by blowing out cross-state rival, Washington State 41-14, and their high-powered offense could definitely be a problem for Penn State as well.

Penn State is tied for fourth nationally with 28 bowl victories and No. 3 in bowl winning percentage with a 28-17-2 post-season record (61.7) among schools with at least 20 postseason appearances. The invitation marks the UW's first-ever trip to the Fiesta Bowl game and the Huskies' third-ever meeting against Penn State, the first since they met in the 1983 Aloha Bowl.
