Penn State finished the 2018 regular season with a 9-3 record. The Nittany Lions are bound for a quality bowl game.
ESPN’s final bowl projections were released earlier today. The Worldwide Leader thinks PSU is set to face Kentucky in the postseason.
The only question is where they will take on the Wildcats. ESPN’s pair of analysts can’t agree on the destination, even if they both have the same matchup.
Here’s what ESPN’s experts are predicting.
- ESPN’s Kyle Bonagura has Penn State playing Kentucky in the Citrus Bowl on Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. ET.
- ESPN’s Mitch Sherman has Penn State playing Kentucky in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1 at noon.
Ironically, we’re coming up on the 20th anniversary of Penn State playing Kentucky in a New Year’s Day bowl game. The Nittany Lions beat the Wildcats in the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1, 1999.
Tim Couch was Kentucky’s quarterback in that game, and LaVar Arrington was one of PSU’s stars. Yea, time sure does fly.
The full bowl slate will be unveiled later today.
