Browning may not have put up the insane numbers this season that he did a year ago, but the reigning Pac-12 player of the year is still no slouch.

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.

Penn State cut Lehigh's lead to 4 points before redshirt senior Gordon Wolf gave Lehigh another win, topping Bo Pipher in the 165-pound weight class. Lehigh held a 19-11 lead going into the final four matches.

The Huskies have a three-headed monster on offense with quarterback Jake Browning, running back Myles Gaskin, and wide receiver Dante Pettis. Heisman Trophy candidate Saquon Barkley will lead the Nittnay Lions against a stout Washington defense.

This time around, neither team was in the mix for a Playoff spot, as both the Lions and Huskies enter the postseason at 10-2, having missed out on their respective conference championship games. Ohio State and ASU both have five Fiesta Bowl wins.
