It will be Washington's first appearance in the Fiesta Bowl, but coach Chris Peterson led Boise State to an upset victory against Oklahoma after the 2006 season. "We expect to see 107K strong out in full force in Glendale for one final game with this special group of seniors".

Penn State: The Nittany Lions were a College Football Playoff contender until losing to Ohio State and Michigan State in consecutive weeks midseason. Curtis Enis was the offensive player of the game, while Brandon Noble was the defensive player of the game.

"Calls are coming in furiously", Fiesta Bowl executive director Mike Nealy said. The Nittany Lions are 6-0 in Fiesta Bowl games.
