Penn State football is Fiesta Bowl bound to take on Washington

Penn State football is Fiesta Bowl bound to take on Washington

They'll look for win No. 7 when they take on the No. 11 Washington Huskies in the Playstation Fiesta Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium on December 30 at 2 p.m. 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.

Washington: QB Jake Browning. The Huskies also feature Myles Gaskin who rushed for over 1,200 yards and 19 touchdowns this season. "We are excited to keep our family together for another month to represent Penn State and the Big Ten Conference". Iowa would respond cutting the lead to just five by the half as Penn State cooled and struggled with foul trouble on the defensive end of the court. In the meeting between Stanford and Washington this year, Stanford RB Love ran for 166 yards and three TDs, and this is what ultimately pushed the Cardinal over the Huskies.

Iowa had beaten Penn State 12 straight times in Iowa City and on Saturday night it looked like the Hawkeyes were closing in on making it 13 as the Nittany Lions leaned on the ropes.

It will be the Nittany Lions' 7th appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, but it's the first since they beat Texas 20 years ago.
