Huskies to play Penn State in the Fiesta Bowl

Mike Gesicki

The final College Football Playoff rankings were released Sunday morning. But after Ohio State was edged out for a spot in the College Football Playoff, the selection committee instead sent the Buckeyes to face USC in the Cotton.

The Nittany Lions are heading to a duel in the desert. Barkley has scored 21 total touchdowns in his (16 rushing, three receiving, two kick return), and he will need to find the end zone a few more times if Penn State is going to be successful against the tough Husky defense.

But it never happened, free throws, clutch baskets and a dunk by Mike Watkins sealed the deal as the Nittany Lions beat Iowa 77-73 to open Big Ten play at 1-0 and improve to 7-2 on the year.

WHO: No. 9 Penn State (10-2) vs.

Penn State have played just twice in their history, with the Lions winning both games.

Washington and Penn State will meet in the postseason for the second time.

Penn State cut Lehigh's lead to 4 points before redshirt senior Gordon Wolf gave Lehigh another win, topping Bo Pipher in the 165-pound weight class. Lehigh held a 19-11 lead going into the final four matches.

It will be Washington's first appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, but coach Chris Peterson led Boise State to an upset victory against Oklahoma after the 2006 season. The teams last met in the 1983 Aloha Bowl, which Penn State won 13-10.
