Rose Bowl Game: Penn State vs. Utah

After winning its second straight Pac-12 Conference Championship, Utah earned a spot in the Rose Bowl Game in back-to-back seasons.

Last year’s Rose Bowl contest featured the Utes and the Ohio State Buckeyes. After Utah QB Cam Rising went down with an injury in the second half, the Buckeyes came back from down double-digits to capture a 48-45 win.

Before being replaced by Barnes, Rising was 17/22 passing for 214 yards and two touchdowns.

This season, Rising and the Utes look to avenge the loss and pick up their first Rose Bowl Game victory.

Utah enters the game with a 10-3 record this season. Penn State arrived in California with a 10-2 record.

After winning its first five games of the season, the Nittany Lions dropped two of three games in losses to Michigan and Ohio State. Penn State won its final four regular season games.
