Penn State to take on Washington in Fiesta Bowl

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

This is Penn State's seventh appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, which is the most of any bowl in program history.

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.

This time around, neither team was in the mix for a Playoff spot, as both the Lions and Huskies enter the postseason at 10-2, having missed out on their respective conference championship games.

Penn State will take on the University of Washington in the Fiesta Bowl in Tempe Arizona.

Penn State last played in the Fiesta Bowl in 1997, beating Texas 38-15. It's what's known as a New Year's Six bowl game. Iowa would respond cutting the lead to just five by the half as Penn State cooled and struggled with foul trouble on the defensive end of the court.

"We are looking forward to heading to Fiesta Bowl and we are very grateful to the Fiesta Bowl Committee for the opportunity", Penn State Head Coach James Franklin said.

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.

Most expected the Lions and Huskies would play in the Cotton Bowl. He has set career records on receptions and touchdowns for a career at Penn State.

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.
