    By: AP

    Updated:

    Penn State (10-2, Big Ten) vs. Washington (10-2, Pac-12), Dec. 30, 4 p.m. EST

    LOCATION: Glendale, Arizona

    TOP PLAYERS

    Penn State: RB Saquon Barkley. Once a top contender for the Heisman Trophy, Barkley rushed for 1,134 yards and 16 touchdowns, averaging 5.7 yards per carry this season. He was the Big Ten offensive player of the year.

    Washington: QB Jake Browning. The Huskies' junior quarterback holds numerous school records and threw for 2,544 yards and 18 touchdowns with five interceptions this season.

    NOTABLE

    Penn State: The Nittany Lions were a College Football Playoff contender until losing to Ohio State and Michigan State in consecutive weeks midseason. Penn State has never lost in six appearances in the Fiesta Bowl.

    Washington: The Huskies also were in the CFP picture before a surprising loss to unranked Arizona State. Keep an eye on Dante Pettis, a threat to score on punt returns, receiving, just about any way imaginable.

    LAST TIME

    Penn State 13, Washington 10. (1983 Aloha Bowl).

    BOWL HISTORY

    Penn State: Seventh appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, 48th bowl appearance in school history.
