Penn State Faithful Unite In Arizona

Penn State Faithful Unite In Arizona

Both teams have a great deal of respect for one another. The Playstation Fiesta Bowl has all the making of another classic bowl game! After the Nittany Lions were backed up deep in their own territory following a pooch punt by the Huskies, Barkley torched the vaunted Washington defense on this unbelievable 92-yard scoring run you see below.

In the second quarter, with Penn State up 21-7 over Washington, everyone got the final highlight they were waiting for. The Huskies have many offensive weapons to pick apart their opponent.

McSorley is 18 of 24 for 219 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, while Barkley has carried nine times for 126 yards and two scores.

Washington will certainly rely on the run game, but they are certainly not one-dimensional. Jake Browning and the Huskies do a lot things well, and protecting the quarterback is near the top. When he does, the likely target will be consensus all-purpose All-American wide receiver Dante Pettis.

A 52-yard trick play set up the Huskies for a touchdown on the first play of the second quarter.

This bowl season was one that Pac-12 teams would not mind forgetting.

Washington is solid in all three phases of the game. "You're talking about both teams that can win on special teams, can win on offense, can win on defense".

Anti-government protests spread across Iran, as 52 arrested
The semiofficial Ilna news agency reported there were smaller protests in Neyshabour, Kashmar, Yazd, and Shahroud on December 28. However, he noted that a call for "No to high prices" protests had been circulated on the messaging app Telegram.

SEC Network news editor Brandon Zimmerman pointed out on Twitter just how bad the bowl season has been for the Pac-12.

He looks at Washington's defense and sees reminders of his own.

The Pac-12 appears to be bad. Unfortunately for the Huskies and the Pac-12, the Nittany Lions proved to be too much to handle, as James Franklin's team scored the game's first 14 points and held on for the 35-28 victory. They are sixth nationally averaging almost 42 points scored per game.

Barkley is a junior, but could decide to leave for the NFL. And Barkley is No. 1 in all-purpose yards with 2,154 yards (179.5 ypg). A running back who can make explosive plays. There will be plenty of times times that redshirt junior quarterback Trace McSorley will use the passing attack. DaeSean Hamilton's opening touchdown came on a third-and-long. Senior Mike Gesicki led the Lions with 51 receptions followed closely by Hamilton and Johnson (each had 48 catches). Big Ten teams (Purdue, Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State) went 4-0 over Pac-12 teams (Arizona, Washington State, USC and Washington). Defensive ends Shareef Miller and Shaka Toney led the Lions with four sacks apiece.

Penn State doesn't have to sack Browning a bunch to be effective, but it must get in his face, knock him down when possible and give him something to think about. The Nittany Lions seem to have made the desert their home-away-from-home. Only Utah - who beat West Virginia - won a bowl game. Both teams are coming off impressive seasons, both finishing with a 10-2 record.

Likewise, Petersen is reticent to bring up the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, when his Boise State team defeated Oklahoma 43-42 in overtime. Every other Pac-12 team has ended the season on a loss. The game is commemorated across Penn State's football offices, though Franklin said that memorabilia won't motivate the Lions this week.

Petersen said he spent several years after the Fiesta Bowl acting "like it didn't happen" when asked about the game. This game is going to be electric with big plays left and right! This should be the type of bowl game where you want to have your DVR and popcorn ready!
