No. 13 LSU will face No. 11 Penn State for only the second time in school history. Penn State, behind Heisman Trophy winner John Cappelletti, beat the Tigers, 16-9, in the Orange Bowl following the 1973 season in the only meeting between the teams.

The appearance will be LSU’s third in the Capital One Bowl and the first since dropping a last-second 30-25 decision to Iowa in the 2005 game. LSU also took part in the 1979 Capital One Bowl (then called the Tangerine Bowl), beating Wake Forest, 34-10.

This year’s LSU team brings a 9-3 overall mark into the contest as the Tigers finished second in the SEC Western Division with a 5-3 league record. LSU, which has been ranked as high as No. 4 in the nation this year, has been ranked in the top 25 all year.

LSU will be making its 41st appearance in a bowl game, including its 10th straight. The 41 bowl appearances rank ninth all-time, while the current 10-game bowl streak is the nation’s ninth-longest streak.
