Penn State Faithful Unite In Arizona

  • This is the 2017 Fiest Bowl parade route in central Phoenix

For head coach James Franklin in particular, it's a chance to send the seniors off with a win - the fifth-year seniors who had no guarantee of any bowl games because of NCAA sanctions at the time they came to Penn State, the fourth-year seniors who put their faith in a new head coach and stayed committed to the program.

In the second quarter, with Penn State up 21-7 over Washington, everyone got the final highlight they were waiting for. 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.

Barkley is maybe the most complete running back in the nation with 1,134 yards and a league-high 16 rushing TDs.

It truly is incredible 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.

Trace McSorley threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, Saquon Barkley ran for two more scores and No. 9 Penn State outlasted No. 12 Washington 35-28 in the Fiesta Bowl on Saturday.

He looks at Washington's offense and, in certain areas, he notices what made Penn State dominant in recent years. So is McSorley and the Nittany Lions should have most of their offensive line back.

Penn State also was 13 for 17 on third downs, including touchdown passes by McSorley and three conversions on its final clock-draining drive.

Five fifth-year seniors - defensive tackles Curtis Cothran (Council Rock North) and Parker Cothren, wide receiver DaeSean Hamilton, guard Brendan Mahon and linebacker Brandon Smith - will start their final games in blue and white on Saturday, as will six fourth-year seniors.

With 1:34 remaining in the stanza the Nittany Lions doubled their advantage, as Barkley scored from two yards out to cap an 11-play, 64-yard drive.

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

Penn State played the first half without ends Shaka Toney and Shareef Miller, as both were suspended according to an ESPN report. Only Utah - who beat West Virginia - won a bowl game. He doesn't expect that to be the case Saturday even though both teams were undefeated at midseason and considered College Football Playoff contenders. For a time earlier this season, the first team All-Big Ten running back was the Heisman Trophy front-runner.
