Big Ten Bowl Preview: 2017 Playstation Fiesta Bowl

  • Saquon Barkley

This bowl season was one that Pac-12 teams would not mind forgetting. However, when Pettis sprinted toward the sideline and looked to extend the play with a lateral after he crossed the 50, he tossed the ball right into the arms of Penn State's Brandon Smith, sealing a 1-8 bowl season for the Pac-12.

Washington's defense continued to have trouble slowing the Nittany Lions and McSorley threw another TD pass to Hamilton, a 24-yarder to put Penn State up 35-21. He said he doesn't see that being the case in this game, because both programs have steps to take to get to a consistently elite level, and one of them is to win major bowl games. The junior, who is likely heading to the National Football League, wasn't used as a workhorse on Saturday but when he was utilized, he was extremely effective.

It truly is awesome how Barkley could break a play wide open, no matter where Penn State is on the field, when he sees the slightest bit of a crease.

No. 9 in the final College Football Rankings, had its way with Washington's vaunted defense early, building a 28-7 lead by the second quarter.

Erica Garner, Activist Daughter Of Eric Garner, Dies At 27
Family members were being called to Woodhull Hospital early Thursday morning to say their final goodbyes to the young activist. A message posted on her Twitter account said she had brain damage "from lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest".

The Pac-12 was outscored by a combined 87 points in the nine games with Washington State's 25-point loss to Michigan State being the most lopsided of the defeats. So is McSorley and the Nittany Lions should have most of their offensive line back. The Huskies enter as the fifth best team in total defense (tops in the Pac-12), allowing just 277 yards per game. Washington finished similarly at 7-5, and also failed to cover in two of their final three.

Penn State scored a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter and completely shut down Washington until late in the opening frame.

Penn State ends the season 11-2 while Washington finishes the season 10-3.

Washington scored the final touchdown of the first half, but that only pulled the Huskies to within 28-14.

US, Turkey to resume visa services
US officials said Thursday "serious concerns" remain about existing allegations against employees that were previously in Turkey. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accuses Mr Gulen of instigating the unrest - a charge the cleric denies.

These teams don't see each other during the regular season, but there's bad blood tracing back to past year.

If this game is as close as most expect, special teams could be a huge factor in who wins.

Similarities tend only to go so far in college football, especially when teams from opposite ends of the country, who are members of fundamentally different conferences, who haven't played each other in 34 years, are being compared. For a time earlier this season, the first team All-Big Ten running back was the Heisman Trophy front-runner.
