Penn State to play Washington in Fiesta Bowl

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

The final College Football Playoff rankings were released Sunday morning. "This is a reward for them, and an opportunity to be together one more time and continue to create pride in our University". 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. Honest thanks to the Fiesta Bowl Committee and all the volunteers for their hospitality and work to make this bowl experience possible.

The Nittany Lions are heading to a duel in the desert.

This will be UW's first trip to the Fiesta Bowl. Browning may not have put up the insane numbers this season that he did a year ago, but the reigning Pac-12 player of the year is still no slouch.

This will be Gesicki's final college game.

It will be Washington's first appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, but coach Chris Peterson led Boise State to an upset victory against Oklahoma after the 2006 season. That game was played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz. The Nittany Lions are 6-0 in Fiesta Bowl games.

This time it will be the Fiesta Bowl against Washington, with the game scheduled for 4 p.m. on December 30 at the Arizona Cardinals' University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

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