Will the Washington Huskies pull off a small upset Saturday afternoon when they take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in the Playstation Fiesta Bowl at 4:00 p.m. ET?

Quarterback Trace McSorley completed 32 of 41 passes for 342 yards and two touchdowns, and Barkley had two touchdown runs as the Nittany Lions (11-2) remained ideal in seven Fiesta Bowl appearances. He also rushed for 60 yards.

INJURY REPORT: For Washington, tight end Hunter Bryant (leg) is questionable while running back Lavon Coleman (ankle) and receiver Dante Pettis (leg) are probable.

THE PUBLIC LIKES: As of Saturday morning, 77% of the betting tickets for this game are on the Nittany Lions and 83% of the money is also on Penn State to cover the spread.

There's no telling whether Franklin was seriously angry or not, but considering quarterback Trace McSorley had punched him in the gut earlier in the game celebrating a touchdown, the Penn State head coach had taken some punishment already.




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. He finished with 19 carries for 137 yards and two touchdowns and had seven catches for 35 yards. But unlike in the Cotton Bowl, the Pac-12 team (Washington) gave the Big Ten team (Penn State) all it could handle in the second half. He's topped 1,000 yards in each of his first three seasons in Seattle.

Miles Sanders countered with 1-yard touchdown run before Barkley broke his 92-yarder for a 28-7 lead after Washington's pooch punt pinned the Nittany Lions deep.

That run put Jackson alongside Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick as the only players in FBS history to have 50 passing and 50 rushing TDs in their careers, but it wasn't enough to make up for his errors, nor for a beleaguered Cardinals defense that allowed true freshman QB Keytaon Thompson to lead Mississippi State to a 31-27 comeback win in the TaxSlayer Bowl. Washington's first trip to the Fiesta Bowl marks its eighth bowl destination in the last eight seasons.

For all the hand-wringing over top prospects skipping their bowl games, neither player's status for his season finale was ever in much doubt.
