Penn State: The Nittany Lions were a College Football Playoff contender until losing to Ohio State and Michigan State in consecutive weeks midseason. The Huskies finished 11th in the final College Football Playoff poll, which put them in the New Years Six bowl.
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 returns to the Fiesta Bowl for the first time since 1997, where it will face a team it hasn't played in 34 years. That game was played at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz.
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.
The No. 9 Nittany Lions will take on 11th-ranked Washington in Glendale, Arizona, near Phoenix on December 30 at 4 p.m. on ESPN. Washington lost to Arizona State and Stanford during the regular season.
Washington and Penn State will meet in the postseason for the second time.
