What this bowl game means to the records...


Rambler suggested this be a Fanpost instead of a Fanshot. 

One of the lesser hyped things about last year's Rose Bowl was that Penn State are currently battling for best Bowl Game winning % in history.  Last year we came in PSU #1 and USC #2, and we left conceding that title.

With a win this year, we can pass USC even if they win:

USC 31 16 .6595
PSU 26 13 .6585

A win would bring us to .675 and likewise USC to .667

Another stat:  Currently Alabama and Penn State are tied with 811 all time wins.  This may or may not reflect the 2009 SEC championship.  We are also 3rd all time with 14 11+ win seasons and 'Bama is 4th with 13. 

A bowl win would give Joe his 394th win.  That means 6 more wins until his 400th.  A win in the Citris bowl could set the stage for next year's Michigan game to possibly be Joe's 400th win (assume we lose to 'Bama and Iowa).  Since he broke Bryants record against Ohio State this would only be fair.

Finally we are currently 16-16 against SEC opponents, and a win against LSU would give Penn State an impossible winning record against the SEC.
