Folks from Penn State Wilkes-Barre's Alumni Association gathered for a watch party at the River Grille near Wilkes-Barre. "So I think that's where the recent success that we've been having is really putting Penn State back on the minds of football fans across the country and recruits across the country". If they can control Barkley in the return game and Pettis can break some big returns the Huskies might just have a shot.
"It's great to have those friends family alumni here together here at the River Grille and cheering on our team", said Piatt.
"Although both of our programs have been a part of national championship discussions over the last couple of years and they were in the playoffs, I do feel like both teams are really excited about this opportunity and playing in this game", Franklin said.

Penn State's defensive line contained the Huskies' elusive quarterback, Jake Browning. The Nittany Lions seem to have made the desert their home-away-from-home. Other than that, though, his play-calling has been superb in his first game taking over for Joe Moorhead.
As the leader of the Boise State program, Petersen guided the Broncos to wins over Oklahoma and TCU in the Fiesta Bowl.
Both teams had 10-win regular seasons, but neither was impressive when it came to Vegas. But, as Coach Petersen was quick to point out during his Fiesta Bowl media availability when asked if he told his Washington players about his Fiesta Bowl success as the coach of Boise State: "They don't care about that".
This year's Fiesta Bowl should be very entertaining. "It could be the day after [the bowl game] I know I'm going to stay or going to leave". Washington is led by dynamic play maker Dante Pettis, Pettis is a dynamic player in both the passing and return games.
