The Nittany Lions defeated the Huskies in the 1983 Aloha Bowl, 13-10. They earned the final New Years Six bowl bid by virtue of finishing No. 11 in the College Football Playoff rankings.

Penn State's 1982 national title was also preceded by a 26-10 win over USC in the Fiesta Bowl to close out the 1981 season.

Penn State has played in the Fiesta Bowl six times in history and won in all six appearances. Penn State also has a 21-7 victory in Seattle back in 1921.


Meanwhile, the Huskies are set to make their Fiesta Bowl debut. "We can't wait to see our Penn State family descend on Valley of the Sun to passionately support their Nittany Lions!" "We are excited to keep our family together for another month to represent Penn State and the Big Ten Conference".

Fiesta Bowl tickets can be purchased here. Ohio State and ASU both have five Fiesta Bowl wins.

Rahne had been passing game coordinator for Penn State the past four seasons, coaching quarterbacks (2014-15) and tight ends (2016-17). Curtis Enis was the offensive player of the game, while Brandon Noble was the defensive player of the game.
