When: Saturday, December 30, 4 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Where: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ
Who: Washington Huskies vs. Penn State Nittany Lions
The Rose Bowl didn't get either a Pac-12 team or a Big Ten team this year contrary to the norm, but that doesn't mean these two conferences can't go at it with one another in the New Year's Six.
This is the "undercard" game of the two Pac-12/Big Ten duels in the New Year's Six to Ohio State/USC, but this game could be just as interesting. Both the Huskies and Nittany Lions were kept out of their own conference title games, but both could argue they were absolutely just as good, if not better than the teams that were there in their places.
Penn State had the odds-on Heisman Trophy favorite for a good month of the season in Saquon Barkley. Many were talking about him as a potential top pick in the NFL Draft and one of the most dynamic running backs in the nation. He tapered off in games against Ohio State and Michigan State and was largely unheard of after that in what turned out to be a huge season for Baker Mayfield.
That said, the Nittany Lions were only one bad quarter of football away from winning the Big Ten East and playing for the Big Ten Championship and a spot in the CFP this year. They couldn't win on the road, though, and that's why they're in the spot they're in at the Fiesta Bowl.
Washington was a dominant team against much of its schedule, but it couldn't figure out how to get the job done when it needed it the most on the road. To lose once to Arizona State was only semi-excusable as it was, but to follow that up with a loss to Stanford down on "The Farm" was an eliminator. It also took the Huskies out of the Pac-12 title game and banished them to the New Year's Six.
Opening Line: Penn State -3
Preview: There was a point that the Penn State Nittany Lions were legitimately favorites to win the National Championship. They went into a three-game stretch against Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State and knew they had to win two of the three games to stay alive for the title. They failed, beating just Michigan before losing the latter two games. Continue...
The two teams to emerge from the semifinals will advance to the 2018 CFP National Championship game held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta on Monday, Jan. 8, 2018.

The Fiesta Bowl is an annual college football game held at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona. It is one of four bowls that take turns hosting the national championship game of college football. Since 1982 the game has typically been played on New Year's Day.
The inaugural Fiesta Bowl was held on December 27, 1971, with Arizona State defeating Florida State 45-38. In 1987 the bowl pitted two undefeated teams Penn State and Miami (Florida) in a game that was the most watched in college football history. Penn State won 14-10 and claimed the national title.
The Fiesta Bowl again hosted national champion-defining games in 1989 and 1996, and in 1999 it was the site of the first officially designated national championship game, with Tennessee defeating Florida State 23-16.
Fiesta Bowl's annual host, Sun Devil Stadium is located on the campus of Arizona State University in the Phoenix suburb of Tempe. It is home to the Arizona State Sun Devils college football team and the NFL's Arizona Cardinals. Built in 1958, the stadium now seats 73,379. In addition to hosting the Fiesta Bowl every year it was the site of Super Bowl XXX in 1996.
In 2000 the Fiesta Bowl became part of the Bowl Championship Series, and every four years (most recently in 2003) is the designee for the national championship game. In January 2007, the Fiesta Bowl hosted the BCS title game, the game was moved to the Arizona Cardinals' new stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
The Knights pulled away in a shootout with Big 12 champion Baylor as quarterback Blake Bortles passed for 301 yards three touchdown passes and running back Storm Johnson rushed for 124 yards and three more in a 52-42 victory.
It was UCF’s first BCS bowl appearance and victory, and it puts the cherry on top of the first year for the American Athletic Conference’s existence.
Oregon football team, capped its season with a 35-17 victory over Kansas State in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3rd, in what may have been coach Chip Kelly's final game with the Ducks.
Oregon Ducks took the opening kickoff back 94 yards for a touchdown and the Ducks never looked back, as the Wildcats struggled to get things going.
