Heading into Senior Day against the Terps, the Nittany Lions’ postseason destination may be narrowed down.

SB Nation, 247Sports, and CBS Sports think Penn State is heading to the New Year’s Six, with SB Nation slotting the Nittany Lions for a return trip to Glendale, and CBS Sports and 247 putting the Blue and White in the Peach Bowl. All three sites have former Ohio State quarterback Joe Burrow and LSU as the opponent. Meanwhile, ESPN’s writers are split, with Bonagura (the better one, I’m sure) joining the NY6 crowd with Florida in the Fiesta, and Sherman separating himself by choosing the Outback and Kentucky.
