Big Ten Bowl Preview: 2017 Playstation Fiesta Bowl

Saquon Barkley

Washington does not have a weak passing game. And Barkley is No. 1 in all-purpose yards with 2,154 yards (179.5 ypg). I think those guys came in with a real big chip on their shoulders that they wanted to be the senior class that really put Penn State back on the map, and I think they accomplished a lot of that.

Penn State could wonder what might have been in the CFP, but a Fiesta Bowl is a nice way to close out the season.

With three-fourths of the conference headed to bowl games, there was potential for the Pac-12 to have an impressive showing and prove that despite not having a team qualify for the College Football Playoff, it is still one of the better Power-5 conferences.

The Nittany Lions jumped out to an early 21-7 lead and held on for a 35-28 win after Washington closed to within a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Middle linebacker Jason Cabinda led Penn State with 84 tackles, while the secondary was paced by senior Marcus Allen.

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

He finished the game 32-41 passing for 322 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. It was exposed, however, in games against Ohio State and Michigan State, but still wound up being ranked 17th nationally and fifth in the Big Ten. For Washington, this will be their first trip to the Fiesta Bowl, but Huskies head coach Chris Petersen is no stranger to the game.

Democrat Jones officially declared victor over Roy Moore
Merrill, the Alabama secretary of state, has dismissed complaints, from Democratic and Republican critics, of election fraud. Merrill added that Jones will officially be sworn into the Senate by Vice President Mike Pence on January 3.

Penn State played the first half without ends Shaka Toney and Shareef Miller, as both were suspended according to an ESPN report.

"We want to win a big-time bowl game and take the next step as a program".

Penn State enters the Fiesta Bowl with a with an unblemished 6-0 mark all-time.

Likewise, Petersen is reticent to bring up the 2007 Fiesta Bowl, when his Boise State team defeated Oklahoma 43-42 in overtime. He doesn't expect that to be the case Saturday even though both teams were undefeated at midseason and considered College Football Playoff contenders.

He looks at Washington's offense and, in certain areas, he notices what made Penn State dominant in recent years. We weren't expecting to have bowl games for a long time.

Petersen said he spent several years after the Fiesta Bowl acting "like it didn't happen" when asked about the game. Penn State was 7-4-1 against the spread this year, and failed to cover in three of their final four games.
