The Athletic (Stewart Mandel): Las Vegas Bowl vs. UCLA

A 7-5 season is not what Penn State fans hoped for entering the season, but it may result in either a trip to Nashville or Vegas...so there’s a bright side I suppose? If I didn’t have a wedding to plan and pay for, I would definitely consider making the trip to either game. Jerry Palm at CBS Sports and ESPN’s Mark Schlabach believe Yankee Stadium will be the destination, but it is considerably more likely that the Music City or Vegas Bowls will be the pick based on the history of Penn State bringing many fans to postseason games (We’ll see if many make the trip this year...).
