Washington Huskies to face Penn State Nittany Lions in Fiesta Bowl

Washington Huskies to face Penn State Nittany Lions in Fiesta Bowl

Penn State is a flawless 6-0 in the Fiesta Bowl. The Huskies finished 11th in the final College Football Playoff poll, which put them in the New Years Six bowl. "This is a reward for them, and an opportunity to be together one more time and continue to create pride in our University".

"Calls are coming in furiously", Fiesta Bowl executive director Mike Nealy said.

It is going to be interesting to see how Penn State's offense will handle the Washington defense, seeing as this will be their first game without former offensive coordinator, Joe Moorhead, who recently left to become the head coach for Mississippi State.

After upsetting the No. 4 team in the country in the University of MI on November 19, Lehigh aimed at taking down another top Big Ten opponent at home, but this time, the Mountain Hawks were up against the two-time defending national champions.

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. "We expect to see 107K strong out in full force in Glendale for one final game with this special group of seniors". That game was played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.

Penn State has played in the Fiesta Bowl six times in history and won in all six appearances.

The Huskies have earned a bowl berth for an eighth consecutive season.

Penn State is tied for fourth nationally with 28 bowl victories and No. 3 in bowl winning percentage with a 28-17-2 post-season record (61.7) among schools with at least 20 postseason appearances.
