SB Nation thinks Penn State will make a return trip to the Fiesta Bowl (Apparently Saturday was a play-in game for the NY6?). CBS Sports moves the Nittany Lions to the Holiday Bowl, and an interesting matchup with Bryce Love and Stanford. Meanwhile, 247 keeps their Outback Bowl pick, and ESPN’s Sherman puts Penn State in the Peach Bowl against Georgia. ESPN’s Bonagura moves the Nittany Lions in the Citrus Bowl against Kentucky.

The No. 14 Nittany Lions face 5th ranked Michigan at 3:45 on ESPN.
