The Penn State Nittany Lions have had a pretty difficult season off the field, but they've enjoyed some success on the field this year and as a result will be playing in a New Year's Day (sort of) bowl game against the Houston Cougars. It will be a matchup of an explosive Cougars offense against a stifling Penn State defense, and the game will likely be won and lost by that matchup.
Here is all the information you need to find that game later this afternoon.
Game Date/Time: Monday, January 2, 12:00 p.m. ET
Location: Cotton Bowl, Dallas, Texas
TV: ESPNU / ESPN3
History: This is only the second Ticket City bowl, and it is the first appearance from either team.
