Penn State Headed To Arizona For Fiesta Bowl

Penn State might not be in the College Football Playoff, but it’s still headed to a New Year’s Six bowl game. The Nittany Lions will travel to Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl, which kicks off at 4 p.m. December 30.

Penn State will face off against Washington at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ — home of the Arizona Cardinals.

This is the third time the Nittany Lions have faced off against Washington. Penn State is 2-0 against the Huskies in previous matchups, which occurred in 1921 and 1983.

James Franklin will try to avenge last season’s Rose Bowl loss to USC in hopes of earning the school’s first major bowl victory since the 2006 Orange Bowl.

Penn State has played in the Fiesta Bowl six times in history and won in all six appearances. The Nittany Lions most recently played in the game back in 1997, when Joe Paterno’s squad defeated Texas 38-15.

About the Author

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard. If you, for some reason, feel compelled to see what Mikey has to say on the internet, follow him on Twitter @Mikey_Mandarino. You can also get in touch with Mikey via his big-boy email address: [email protected]
