Mike will have one final game in which he will represent Penn State University on Saturday, December 30 at 4 p.m. Penn State will compete in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona against Pac-12 opponent Washington University. Washington lost to Arizona State and Stanford during the regular season.

Washington: QB Jake Browning.

No. 1 Penn State (4-0) squeaked by the Lehigh wrestling team (4-1) 23-19 in front of nearly 10,000 people at the PPL Center in Allentown.

Penn State: The Nittany Lions were a College Football Playoff contender until losing to Ohio State and Michigan State in consecutive weeks midseason. He was the Big Ten offensive player of the year.

Four Nittany Lions scored in double figures, with leading scorer Lamar Stevens adding two free throws with four seconds left for a total of 22 points.

This is the fourth straight year in a row the Nittany Lions are playing in a bowl game under Coach James Franklin. 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.

This is Penn State's seventh appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, which is the most of any bowl in program history.

No major bowl game has treated Penn State better than the Fiesta, where the Lions are 6-0, including their last national championship victory over Miami at the end of the 1986 season.
