The No. 11 Huskies will play against No. 9 Penn State.

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

Most expected the Lions and Huskies would play in the Cotton Bowl. "We can't wait to see our Penn State family descend on Valley of the Sun to passionately support their Nittany Lions!"

Penn State was able to take all four of those matches, two of which were decided by 1 point.

This is the fourth straight year in a row the Nittany Lions are playing in a bowl game under Coach James Franklin.

Penn State 13, Washington 10.

The Huskies finished their season at 10-2 overall, just like Penn State, and missed out on a berth in the PAC-12 Championship game to Stanford. Penn State lost by one point to Ohio State and 3 pts to Michigan State.

On offense, Washington boasts a trio of elite skill players in quarterback Jake Browning, running back Myles Gaskin and wideout Dante Pettis, who has more punt return touchdowns than anyone in the history of major college football. Its last appearance came on January 1, 1997, in a win over Texas. The Lions' last trip to the game came in the 1996 season, a 38-15 win over Texas.

Penn State is the home team for the Fiesta Bowl, which will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium at Glendale, Ariz., on December 30 at 4 p.m.
