Matched up with No. 9 Penn State in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl, No. 11 Washington represented the Pac-12's last opportunity to salvage something from what had been a disastrous bowl season.

The Nittany Lions jumped out to an early 21-7 lead and held on for a 35-28 win after Washington closed to within a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Franklin took a second, stood there, and then ran through his players looking very angry.

Franklin did go on to compliment his players in a postgame interview, so whatever anger he had seemed to pass quickly.

Turnovers are what kept the door open for Washington, as McSorley was picked off twice and Penn State committed a total of three turnovers on the day.

Quarterback Trace McSorley completed 32 of 41 passes for 342 yards and two touchdowns, and Barkley had two touchdown runs as the Nittany Lions (11-2) remained flawless in seven Fiesta Bowl appearances. He also ripped off a 13-yard touchdown run on a read-option keeper, assaulting the ankles of Mississippi State defensive back Johnathan Abram and side-stepping a diving tackler before slipping into the end zone. He finished with 19 carries for 137 yards and two touchdowns and had seven catches for 35 yards.

Penn State's 545 yards were most Washington gave up this season, and the Huskies had not given up more than 30 points in a span of 26 games, since the 2015 Heart of Dallas Bowl.

Hamilton had four receptions for 96 yards and two touchdowns.

After McSorley's first touchdown pass to Hamilton, Barkley scored on a 2-yard run for a 14-0 lead with 1:42 left in the first quarter.

Washington tried a hook and lateral play on a fourth down and wide receiver Dante Pettis inexplicably threw the ball to a Penn State player instead of running out of bounds with five seconds left. Browning scored on a sneak two plays later.

That run put Jackson alongside Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick as the only players in FBS history to have 50 passing and 50 rushing TDs in their careers, but it wasn't enough to make up for his errors, nor for a beleaguered Cardinals defense that allowed true freshman QB Keytaon Thompson to lead Mississippi State to a 31-27 comeback win in the TaxSlayer Bowl. The Pac-12 is 1-8 in bowl games this season.
