This is a tough one to predict and I don’t have much of a feeling for it. That being said, I think Penn State and USC match up very well against each other. I was hoping for more “Penn State doesn’t even belong here talk” but I think there may be enough to motivate the Nittany Lions. Keeping that in mind, along with a special, focused senior class, and Joe Paterno’s strong record in bowl games (approx .667 winning percentage) I am picking Penn State to win.
Penn State 23 USC 20
Penn State, Nittany Lions, Rose Bowl, USC
