Fiesta Bowl Washington vs Penn State: Preview and Prediction

Fiesta Bowl Washington vs Penn State: Preview and Prediction

Things could have been worse for Washington, but Penn State's second drive of the game came to an end as McSorley was picked off by Byron Murphy in the end zone.

Penn State played the first half without ends Shaka Toney and Shareef Miller, as both were suspended according to an ESPN report.

Washington matches up well with PSU on both sides of the ball, and if Petersen is able to pull out some tricks, it could be the difference in the game.?Then again, the Lions have a new offensive coordinator in Ricky Rahne, so don't be surprised if he has some tricks up his sleeve that he's been waiting to use. Barkley had 137 of the Nittany Lions' 203 yards rushing. First and foremost, they like to attack opponents with All-American junior Saquon Barkley.

The 1987 Fiesta Bowl between Penn State and Miami remains among the most important games in college football. Browning on the other hand is no slouch, passing for 2,544 yards, 18 touchdowns, five interceptions. Middle linebacker Jason Cabinda led Penn State with 84 tackles, while the secondary was paced by senior Marcus Allen.

With the win Penn State (11-2) wrapped up its second consecutive 11-win season, the first time the program has accomplished this since the 2008 and 2009 seasons. It was exposed, however, in games against Ohio State and Michigan State, but still wound up being ranked 17th nationally and fifth in the Big Ten.




Penn State doesn't have to sack Browning a bunch to be effective, but it must get in his face, knock him down when possible and give him something to think about. The first game of the day is the TaxSlayer Bowl, which has Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson. "They care about Playstation and practicing hard and the here and now".

Some people out west may not feel that the SEC deserves to have two teams in the College Football Playoff, but the Pac-12 has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that it had absolutely no business even sniffing the playoff. The game is commemorated across Penn State's football offices, though Franklin said that memorabilia won't motivate the Lions this week.

This year's Fiesta Bowl should be very entertaining.

"It's always of paramount importance in every game we play", Washington head coach Chris Petersen said of the Huskies' special teams success. This should be the type of bowl game where you want to have your DVR and popcorn ready!
