Penn State was No. 9 in the final College Football Playoff rankings and Washington was No. 11. The Trojans defeated the Cardinal in the Pac-12 championship game Friday night and will play Ohio State in Dallas's Cotton Bowl at 5:30 p.m. December 29. The Nittany Lions went 7-2 in the Big Ten, while the Huskies went 7-2 in Pac-12 play.

Washington and Penn State will meet in the postseason for the second time. The Huskies' junior quarterback holds numerous school records and threw for 2,544 yards and 18 touchdowns with five interceptions this season.
