Penn State Football bowl projections seem to be down to two potential locations, including the possibility of a rematch with Auburn in the Music City Bowl in Nashville.
After a 28-0 victory over Rutgers Saturday afternoon at Beaver Stadium, Penn State Football moved to 7-4 this season and will conclude the 2021 campaign in East Lansing this weekend and the Michigan State Spartans.
The Nittany Lions‘ bowl projections seem to be zeroed into two locations at this point, and for any fans that may have plans to travel with the team this holiday season, they are both exciting locations with interesting opponents.
As many may already know, bowl selections come down to the conference tie-ins and where a team ends up falling in the standings of their conference that mostly determine where teams end up.
A win over the Spartans with some “help” from other teams in the Big Ten could change the trajectory of where Penn State Football goes bowling, but as of right now let’s take a look at the most likely destinations and opponents.
Sports Illustrated: TransPerfect Music City Bowl
Dec 30th, Nashville TN
Sports Illustrated has the most interesting opponent of all projecting a rematch with the Auburn Tigers in Nashville.
Auburn though could look a whole lot different than when they came to Happy valley in September, as quarterback Bo Nix has just undergone surgery and most likely will not be back in time for their bowl game.
The Tigers dropped their first game without Nix this weekend at South Carolina 21-17 but undoubtedly would love another shot at Penn State Football to erase that 28-20 defeat in State College in front of a white out crowd.
