After upsetting the No. 4 team in the country in the University of MI on November 19, Lehigh aimed at taking down another top Big Ten opponent at home, but this time, the Mountain Hawks were up against the two-time defending national champions.

The No. 9 Nittany Lions and the No. 11 Huskies were selected on Sunday after the announcement of the final four teams selected for the 4 team championship playoffs.

Penn State will make its 48th bowl appearance and fourth in four seasons since the NCAA lifted the school's bowl ban after the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Penn State to play Washington in the Fiesta Bowl

Continuing momentum into the next bout, redshirt sophomore Luke Karam completed the upset against Penn State's Jered Cortez, extending Lehigh's early lead to 15-0.

The Huskies have a three-headed monster on offense with quarterback Jake Browning, running back Myles Gaskin, and wide receiver Dante Pettis. Lamar Stevens paced Penn State with 22 point as Tony Carr, Mike Watkins and Shep Garner added 16, 19 and 12 points respectively. Penn State also has a 21-7 victory in Seattle back in 1921.

If McSorley can control the game with both his arm and legs, as he has done all year, Penn State has a good chance of emerging victorious.

One fun fact for this game is that Penn State has never lost an appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, winning all six of their previous trips to prestigious game. Its last appearance came on January 1, 1997, in a win over Texas.
