Penn State to play Washington in Fiesta Bowl

They earned the final New Years Six bowl bid by virtue of finishing No. 11 in the College Football Playoff rankings. That decision avoided three straight trips to the Fiesta for Ohio State and also a Penn State-USC rematch in the Fiesta.

At a glance Washington and Penn State share a common opponent in Rutgers. Penn State also has a 21-7 victory in Seattle back in 1921.

The Huskies finished their season at 10-2 overall, just like Penn State, and missed out on a berth in the PAC-12 Championship game to Stanford.

The Huskies are a balanced team led by one of the country's top coaches in Chris Petersen.

Rahne had been passing game coordinator for Penn State the past four seasons, coaching quarterbacks (2014-15) and tight ends (2016-17).

In the College Football Playoff rankings released a little later, the Huskies earned a New Year's Six bowl matchup against No. 9 Penn State (10-2) in the Fiesta Bowl at 1 p.m. December 30 in Glendale, AZ. Their last meeting was in the 1983 Aloha Bowl in Hawaii, where Penn State won 13-10. The Nittany Lions lost to USC, 52-49, in the Rose Bowl after last season.
