Go Outback with the Lions, FOS!

Now that Penn State's bowl destination has been confirmed, it is time to make travel plans. Avoid the extreme hassle of lining up holiday travel and lodging by booking a convenient FightOnState.com tour package. Just arrive at the airport and we take it from there, with flights, a top hotel, tickets transfers and much more.

It's official: Penn State has accepted a bid to play in the Outback Bowl, a game scheduled for Jan. 1 in sunny Tampa against an SEC opponent that could rank as high as the top 10. The Nittany Lions, who finished fourth in the Big Ten standings, are playing in their second straight January bowl.

Penn State is always a powerful draw for bowl games and this one figures to be special as legendary coach Joe Paterno returns from injury.

So if you have not done so, NOW is the time to make your arrangements to head to Tampa. And there is no easier way to do that than with our FightOnState.com Tour Packages, which take all of the hassle out of the process.

Just book a tour then show up at the airport. We'll handle everything from there.

Last season, FightOnState.com and Premiere Sports Travel sent nearly 400 customers to the Orange Bowl, and the reviews were overwhelmingly positive.

This game features several intriguing storylines, led, of course, by the projected return to the field of the legendary Paterno. Paterno, who had surgery to repair a broken left leg and torn knee ligaments sustained in a game at Wisconsin earlier this season, was not allowed on the field for PSU's final two regular season home games while recovering from the surgery.

It will also be the final game of a strong group of seniors, led, of course, by All-American linebacker Paul Posluszny.

Conference bragging rights will also be on the line. Though Penn State's only losses this year were to teams currently ranked in the top eight of the BCS standings, critics point to the Big Ten as being top-heavy, with only Ohio State, Michigan and Wisconsin capable of competing with the best of the rest of the nation.

The Nittany Lions aim to put that theory to rest against an SEC power. And face it; you want to be there when it happens.
