Penn State have played just twice in their history, with the Lions winning both games.
Nittany Lion quarterback, Trace McSorley will also need to show poise, as Washington was 11th in the country this season in team sacks with 37, and also intercepted opposing quarterbacks 13 times. 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. In the final bout, Penn State's Nick Nevills was able to ride out redshirt sophomore Jordan Wood in the third period to clinch the victory for Penn State. Curtis Enis was the offensive player of the game, while Brandon Noble was the defensive player of the game. 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!
Continuing momentum into the next bout, redshirt sophomore Luke Karam completed the upset against Penn State's Jered Cortez, extending Lehigh's early lead to 15-0.

The Penn State Nittany Lions finished the 2017 regular season with a record of 10-2, which earned them the #9 spot in the final College Football Playoff rankings.
Most expected the Lions and Huskies would play in the Cotton Bowl.
