Penn State will be going to a bowl game, but it is not the bowl the team and fans had hoped for. The Nittany Lions will play on January 2 against Houston in the TicketCity Bowl in Dallas.
Penn State was passed over by three bowls, who instead took Iowa, Purdue and Ohio State--all teams that Penn State beat this season. However, the Nittany Lions will face a stiff test against Houston. The Cougars were posed for a BCS bowl until Southern Mississippi beat them last Saturday in the Conference USA Championship. Houston finished the season at 12-1, scoring 50.8 points per game.
With only 300 days to go until Penn State's 2012 homecoming celebration, the Executive Committee announced their officers for next year.
I had not initially balked at my goal, to find the golden ducks, but my light-heartedness had succeeded me before, and I could feel it licking its lips at the fresh victory before it.
