Penn State is heading to the Cotton Bowl Classic for the first time since 1975.
The 10th-ranked Nittany Lions learned their postseason fate during the New Year’s Six reveal show on Sunday.
Penn State will play No. 17 Memphis inside AT&T Stadium in Arlington on Dec. 28.
James Franklin’s squad put together another 10-win season for the program, capping off the regular season with a 27-6 win over Rutgers.
This marks the third time in the last four seasons the Nittany Lions have won at least 10 games.
The last time Penn State accomplished that feat was a span from 1993-96.
The Tigers, meanwhile, captured the American Athletic Conference Championship on Saturday by topping Cincinnati, 29-24. It was their second win over the Bearcats in an eight-day span.
The win also gave Memphis its first 12-win season in program history.
