Penn State football is Fiesta Bowl bound to take on Washington

WHO: No. 9 Penn State (10-2) vs. He was the Big Ten offensive player of the year.

Penn State is 2-0 all-time against the Huskies with the win in the 1983 Aloha Bowl and a 21-7 win at Washington in 1921. He ran for over 1,200 yards, and found the end zone 22 total times (19 rushing, three receiving) this season, so stopping him is no easy task for the Lions.

Plenty of projections had Penn State facing off against Washington in the postseason. 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! Heisman Trophy candidate Saquon Barkley will lead the Nittnay Lions against a stout Washington defense.

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. This is very much a possibility, as it has been proven by Bryce Love and Stanford that Washington can be beaten on the ground.

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.

Penn State have played just twice in their history, with the Lions winning both games. Nittany Lion fans everywhere will certainly hope that trend continues come December 30.
