Penn State returns to Fiesta Bowl to play Washington

It was the Nittany Lions first win at the venue since 2001. Big 10 matchup occurs in the Rose Bowl, but this season, the Rose Bowl will be featured as a College Football Playoff semifinal between No. 2 Oklahoma and No. 3 Georgia. Washington and Penn State have both faced Rutgers this season, with the Huskies winning on the road 30-14 in the opening week and the Lions winning 35-6 on November 11.

New Year's Day 1997 was the last Nittany Lion Fiesta Bowl appearance, when Penn State beat the Texas Longhorns 38-15. PSU is 2-0 all-time against the current PAC-12 program, sporting wins from 1921 and 1983, the latter of which came in the Aloha Bowl.

Penn State will make its 48th bowl appearance and fourth in four seasons since the NCAA lifted the school's bowl ban after the Jerry Sandusky scandal.


But this go-around, Washington fell on the road at Arizona State and Stanford - nixing its chances to reach the conference title game, let alone the playoff.

Under Smith's guide, Washington had nation's No. 17 scoring offense this season with an average of 36.9 points per game.
