Penn State holds off Washington to win Fiesta Bowl


This year the Pac-12 saw Oregon, UCLA, Arizona, Stanford, Washington State, Arizona State, USC and Washington all lose and the Utes be the only team to pick up a win.

James Franklin was thrilled to see his Nittany Lions get a 35-28 win over Washington in the Fiesta Bowl, but he was not happy after his customary Gatorade bath.

Two of the best quarterbacks in the nation will face off in this game and they will do it against two defense that are capable of stopping or at least limiting what they can do. The bulk of Gaskin's yardage came on a 69-yard scoring scamper right up the gut out of the wildcat midway through the fourth quarter.

11 CFP, allowed Penn State to work the clock to under a minute on the next drive and gave up a season-high 545 total yards.

The Pac-12 was outscored by a combined 87 points in the nine games with Washington State's 25-point loss to Michigan State being the most lopsided of the defeats. Look at McSorley's stat line on third downs. It would be through the air that Penn State scored the game's first points, as Trace McSorley connected with DaeSean Hamilton on a 48-yard touchdown pass with 11:10 remaining in the first quarter.

Washington was the final Pac-12 team to play in a bowl after the 2017 season.

Some people out west may not feel that the SEC deserves to have two teams in the College Football Playoff, but the Pac-12 has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that it had absolutely no business even sniffing the playoff.

The Big Ten Network made sure to note that.

On the other side, linebacker Manny Brown (none) is out for the year while defensive end Torrence Brown (knee) also won't play for Penn State this afternoon.
