Weather: The weather gods have blessed Penn State and the Bronx with beautiful weather for a late-December bowl game. The temperature is a high of 52 degrees and will dip to around 41 degrees as the sun goes down and the game progresses. The Weather Channel calls for “abundant sunshine” and minimal winds.

Last Time they Met: Penn State last faced off with the Eagles on Sept. 11, 2004, at Alumni Stadium. Boston College won the home game 21-7, taking advantage of five Nittany Lions five turnovers to control the scoreboard. The Eagles led 14-0 in the third quarter when Zach Mills hit Ryan Scott for a seven-yard touchdown, but seven points was as close as Penn State would get. Mills threw picks on three of the four ensuing possessions to seal Penn State’s fate.

Injuries: Adam Breneman (knee), Ben Kline (Achilles), Zach Zwinak (leg injury), and Ryan Keiser are all injured and out for the year for the Nittany Lions.
