Penn State Faithful Unite In Arizona

Penn State Faithful Unite In Arizona

Penn State's o-line must have their best game yet as Penn State looks to overcome Washington's defense on Saturday. This is a premier match-up of a great running back against a great run defense.

Barkley has been held to fewer than 100 yards on the ground eight times this season as the Nittany Lions have struggled at times to run between the tackles.

Washington will certainly rely on the run game, but they are certainly not one-dimensional. Barkley is surely deserving of this designation, as he has racked up 1,134 rushing yards, 594 receiving yards, 16 rushing touchdowns, and three receiving touchdowns this season, while also making a big impact as a returner on special teams. Bowl games nearly always see some wrinkles as teams have a month to prepare, but with new play callers on both teams there should be even more of that.

Of course, picking a Pac-12 team in this bowl season is a risk, and maybe delusional. First and foremost, they like to attack opponents with All-American junior Saquon Barkley. He has 25 tackles, 3.5 sacks and 5.5 tackles for loss on the season. He accumulated over 1,500 yards from scrimmage this season. One of his favorite targets was tight end Mike Gesicki, who caught a team-high nine touchdowns and will certainly be one to watch. It was exposed, however, in games against Ohio State and Michigan State, but still wound up being ranked 17th nationally and fifth in the Big Ten.

Penn State announced that linebacker Manny Bowen has been dismissed from the team.

Penn State enters the Fiesta Bowl with a with an unblemished 6-0 mark all-time.

The Nittany Lions had an extremely impressive start to their season, defeating their first seven opponents, including #19 MI. The first game of the day is the TaxSlayer Bowl, which has Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson.

With the advent of the four-team College Football Playoff, the rest of the bowl games have lost significance to anyone outside the participating programs or their fan bases. The last meeting was a 13-10 win in the 1983 Aloha Bowl. But, as Coach Petersen was quick to point out during his Fiesta Bowl media availability when asked if he told his Washington players about his Fiesta Bowl success as the coach of Boise State: "They don't care about that". He doesn't expect that to be the case Saturday even though both teams were undefeated at midseason and considered College Football Playoff contenders. "We're excited to go out there and finish this one off with a win".

This year's Fiesta Bowl should be very entertaining.

If you want to watch the game and you don't have a cable subscription don't worry.
