Huskies to face Penn State in Fiesta Bowl

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

Penn State and Washington both finished the regular season with a 10-2 record. 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.

The No. 9 Nittany Lions and the No. 11 Huskies were selected on Sunday after the announcement of the final four teams selected for the 4 team championship playoffs. They have one of the nation's very best defenses, checking in at No. 5 in yards allowed and No. 6 in points allowed, one spot ahead of Penn State.

Washington: QB Jake Browning.

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. 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.


Penn State have played just twice in their history, with the Lions winning both games.

But it never happened, free throws, clutch baskets and a dunk by Mike Watkins sealed the deal as the Nittany Lions beat Iowa 77-73 to open Big Ten play at 1-0 and improve to 7-2 on the year.

Penn State: RB Saquon Barkley. Nittany Lion fans everywhere will certainly hope that trend continues come December 30.
