Huskies to face Penn State in Fiesta Bowl

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

Penn State has played in the Fiesta Bowl six times in history and won in all six appearances. 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 University of Washington Huskies are heading to the Fiesta Bowl. 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.

This will be UW's first trip to the Fiesta Bowl. "We are excited to keep our family together for another month to represent Penn State and the Big Ten Conference".

This is the fourth straight year in a row the Nittany Lions are playing in a bowl game under Coach James Franklin.

Many people feel that this season was somewhat disappointing for the Nittany Lions, due to close losses to Ohio State, and Michigan State, which ultimately kept the them from a chance at the playoff.

The Fiesta Bowl is an interesting bowl placement for PSU, as they have not played in one since 1997, when they defeated Texas.

No. 1 Penn State (4-0) squeaked by the Lehigh wrestling team (4-1) 23-19 in front of nearly 10,000 people at the PPL Center in Allentown.

Penn State's 1982 national title was also preceded by a 26-10 win over USC in the Fiesta Bowl to close out the 1981 season.
