Penn State vs. Purdue: Capital One Bowl Representative Sees Nittany Lions' Victory

It might seem a little early to start talking about bowl games, but with Penn State's 23-18 triumph against Purdue on Saturday afternoon at Beaver Stadium, the Nittany Lions earned their sixth win of the season and became bowl eligible. Thanks to their huge following, it's now almost a guarantee they'll be heading somewhere for the Holidays, even if they lose all of their remaining games.

The scouts are already out, too. I spotted a Capital One Bowl representative on the sideline at the end of the game and then in the press room post game, which is certainly good news for Penn State, as that bowl game has first selection of Big Ten teams after the Bowl Championship Series. Do the Lions have what it takes to snatch that lofty bowl slot? After watching the quarterbacks today, that certainly remains to be seen, but it looks like at least someone on the outside thinks they could.
