Penn State vs. Washington: Spread, Total & Prediction for Fiesta Bowl

The redshirt junior quarterback finished the day 32-for-41 with 342 yards and two touchdowns.

Washington will certainly rely on the run game, but they are certainly not one-dimensional. And Barkley is No. 1 in all-purpose yards with 2,154 yards (179.5 ypg). "So I think that's where the recent success that we've been having is really putting Penn State back on the minds of football fans across the country and recruits across the country".

Penn State started fast and played that way throughout the first 30 minutes here in the Fiesta Bowl, which equals a 28-14 halftime lead.

Washington's defense continued to have trouble slowing the Nittany Lions and McSorley threw another TD pass to Hamilton, a 24-yarder to put Penn State up 35-21.

Penn State who found itself ranked as high as #3 in the country this year had a disappointing finish including a blown lead to Ohio St and a weird loss to Michigan St.

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

A Penn State field goal to make it a two-score game sailed wide right with 34 seconds left, but Washington's last-gasp drive sputtered just as it was gaining some steam. Big Ten teams (Purdue, Michigan State, Ohio State and Penn State) went 4-0 over Pac-12 teams (Arizona, Washington State, USC and Washington). For Washington, this will be their first trip to the Fiesta Bowl, but Huskies head coach Chris Petersen is no stranger to the game.

Mother, 2 children killed in Christmas Day shooting at Phoenix apartment complex
Phoenix police communicated with the shooting suspect, who barricaded himself inside one of the apartments. Police were called to the scene Monday afternoon on a report of a shooting and found a woman dead outside.

This is another outstanding bowl match-up between two explosive teams that should come down to the wire.

Both enter the game with 10-2 records. The game is commemorated across Penn State's football offices, though Franklin said that memorabilia won't motivate the Lions this week.

In this matchup, the lights will be brightest in Penn State's backfield.

If this game is as close as most expect, special teams could be a huge factor in who wins.

Likewise, Petersen is reticent to bring up the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, when his Boise State team defeated Oklahoma 43-42 in overtime.

This year's Fiesta Bowl should be very entertaining.

"Talking about the Fiesta Bowl from back then, it doesn't have a whole lot of value for what we're trying to do today", Franklin said. So the fact that [the ban] got lifted ... being able to play four straight bowls is not something that I imagined not being able to do.
