No. 24 Penn State to play No. 20 Houston in Ticket City Bowl
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) ' The final game of No. 24 Penn State's tumultuous season will be played on Jan. 2 in the Ticket City Bowl against No. 20 Houston.
Penn State and the bowl made the official announcements Sunday night on their respective websites.
The Nittany Lions (9-3) finished tied with Wisconsin for first in the Big Ten Leaders Division.
But the program is in turmoil after former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was charged last month with sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year span. The Ticket City Bowl, played at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, had the seventh selection out of bowls with Big Ten tie-ins, after the BCS games.
Houston (12-1) was upset Saturday by Southern Mississippi in the Conference USA title game.
