Penn State is the favorite heading west in the Playstation Fiesta Bowl against Washington.

Folks from Penn State Wilkes-Barre's Alumni Association gathered for a watch party at the River Grille near Wilkes-Barre. They know what the journey has been like."I feel we kind of brought Penn State back", Haley said, "from playing in the Pinstripe Bowl to the Rose Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl". 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.

"It's great to have those friends family alumni here together here at the River Grille and cheering on our team", said Piatt. He said the best advice he received from former Penn State players who have gone on to National Football League careers is that at some point "you're going to want to come back to this moment".

Even though the frigid temperatures could have kept fans at home, they decided they would rather be here with the crowd. Both teams have explosive tailbacks who can make plays."While much attention has been focused on Penn State junior running back Saquon Barkley, who's expected to turn pro, the seniors are focused on how far the program has come in such a short period of time."To see where we were when we came here and then to be a part of how things unfolded, it's a blessing", Allen said".

"It's just a huge alumni group". The Huskies ended their season in grand fashion blowing out #13 Washington St 41-14. When it was successful it was due to the defensive line getting pressure on the quarterback.

Penn State enters the Fiesta Bowl with a with an unblemished 6-0 mark all-time. The Nittany Lions sacked Browning twice. "We went into the season not thinking we were going to be able to play in a bowl game". Lanning converted a 2nd-and-7 with a 9-yard rush, securing a game-clinching first down to salt away Iowa State's first bowl win since 2009. "Both teams protect the football". But, as Coach Petersen was quick to point out during his Fiesta Bowl media availability when asked if he told his Washington players about his Fiesta Bowl success as the coach of Boise State: "They don't care about that".

Penn State wants to cap another strong season, this time with a bowl victory, while Washington wants to prove that last season's playoff team was no fluke.

The teams traded punt on their next possessions, but an advantage in the field position battle gave Iowa State the ball at the Memphis 45 with 11:05 to play in the game.
