Penn State's 1982 national title was also preceded by a 26-10 win over USC in the Fiesta Bowl to close out the 1981 season.

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.

It might not be the College Football Playoffs but the Nittany Lions are still headed to a New Year's Six bowl game.

Will the Irish border issue trip up Brexit?
Open access will have to end when Britain leaves the single market and customs union, the Commons exiting the EU committee said. The issue is a major sticking point in the negotiations and must be dealt with before trade talks can begin.


This is Penn State's seventh appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, which is the most of any bowl in program history. Curtis Enis was the offensive player of the game, while Brandon Noble was the defensive player of the game. This time it will be the Fiesta Bowl against Washington, with the game scheduled for 4 p.m. on December 30 at the Arizona Cardinals' University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

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

Washington was No. 5 in the AP poll when it surprisingly lost 13-7 to Arizona State on October 14. The Nittany Lions lost to USC, 52-49, in the Rose Bowl after last season. The Nittany Lions went 7-2 in the Big Ten, while the Huskies went 7-2 in Pac-12 play.
