Penn State Faithful Unite In Arizona

Both suffered crushing, close losses down the stretch in which they had commanding leads; Penn State to Ohio State, and Washington to Stanford.

Washington had a chance to stop the Pac-12 from reaching this point in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl against Penn State, but the Huskies lost 35-28 after turning it over inside Penn State territory with five seconds remaining.

Penn State also was 13 for 17 on third downs, including touchdown passes by McSorley and three conversions on its final clock-draining drive. For Washington, this will be their first trip to the Fiesta Bowl, but Huskies head coach Chris Petersen is no stranger to the game. The Nittany Lions were up 28-14 on Washington.

Penn State played the first half without ends Shaka Toney and Shareef Miller, as both were suspended according to an ESPN report. It will be going against the largest defensive line it has seen this season, one that spurred the best rushing defense in the nation statistically and will try today to corral star Penn State running back Saquon Barkley. The game was memorable for Petersen's collection of trick plays, which led to a huge upset and an on-field marriage proposal for one of his players.

Watching Washington is a lot like watching Penn State - both teams mirror each other offensively.

"I don't think it's something that you can really put into words and describe the impact that last year's seniors had, the impact this year's seniors had", Franklin said Friday at the final press conference before Saturday's game against Washington at University of Phoenix Stadium. Saquon Barkley is projected to be a star in the National Football League, and will likely be one of the first players to hear his name at the draft next year.

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

With the win Penn State (11-2) wrapped up its second consecutive 11-win season, the first time the program has accomplished this since the 2008 and 2009 seasons.

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

All four games feature marquee players. We weren't expecting to have bowl games for a long time. Both teams were just on the outside looking in to the College Football Playoffs, but want to prove that they belong among the nation's elite.
