Penn State going to the Alamo Bowl The Penn State Nittany Lions (8-4) officially accepted today (Friday) an invitation to the Alamo Bowl on December 29th. The opponent of Penn State will be a Big 12 team, likely Texas or Texas A&M, to be determined this Sunday. "This team has worked hard all season and has been a great group to work with. I'm happy for the squad that their efforts will be rewarded with an opportunity to go to San Antonio," Penn State coach Joe Paterno commented on the upcoming Alamo Bowl game. This year Penn State and its opponent will match-up for a price of over $2 million at the Alamodome.
