The Fiesta Bowl Trophy

The Nittany Lions defeated the Huskies in the 1983 Aloha Bowl, 13-10. They also met in 1921 in Seattle, where Penn State won 21-7.USC and Ohio State, who many expected to play in the Fiesta Bowl, are headed to the December 29 Cotton Bowl. 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. It's what's known as a New Year's Six bowl game. "This is a reward for them, and an opportunity to be together one more time and continue to create pride in our University".

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. Honest thanks to the Fiesta Bowl Committee and all the volunteers for their hospitality and work to make this bowl experience possible.

"Calls are coming in furiously", Fiesta Bowl executive director Mike Nealy said. Ohio State and ASU both have five Fiesta Bowl wins.

The Fiesta Bowl is an interesting bowl placement for PSU, as they have not played in one since 1997, when they defeated Texas. That game was played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.

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.

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.
