Penn Staters Weigh In On Cotton Bowl Berth, Rose Bowl Snub

No. 10 Penn State football’s December 28 trip to Dallas for a showdown against No. 17 Memphis was confirmed Sunday, ending a back-and-forth bowl projection saga that jumped from Rose, to Orange, to Outback, to, finally, Cotton.

Penn Staters were far from satisfied with a trip to Dallas when the selection was confirmed, however, calling Wisconsin’s Rose Bowl selection a Penn State snub and expecting the worst in Texas.

Others lamented what Penn State’s bowl selection could have been had it pulled off a win on the road over Minnessota last month.

Optimistic fans tried to turn the tide of negativity, though, reminding other commenters that Penn State will still play in a New Year’s Six bowl.
