  • Preview: Penn State at Iowa

Ohio State and USC have both played in the Cotton Bowl only once before, both when the game was played in historic Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas. The Huskies finished 11th in the final College Football Playoff poll, which put them in the New Years Six bowl.

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.

No major bowl game has treated Penn State better than the Fiesta, where the Lions are 6-0, including their last national championship victory over Miami at the end of the 1986 season.


Fiesta Bowl tickets can be purchased here. The only two losses of the year, against Stanford and Arizona State on the road.

At a glance Washington and Penn State share a common opponent in Rutgers. The Lions' last trip to the game came in the 1996 season, a 38-15 win over Texas. The Nittany Lions defeated the Huskies in the 1983 Aloha Bowl, 13-10. The Huskies beat the Scarlet Knights 30-14 in New Jersey en route to a 10-2 season with wins over Washington State, Oregon, UCLA.
