The Penn State Nittany Lions (10-2) face off against the Utah Utes (10-3) in the Rose Bowl on Monday, January 2. Kickoff is set for 5:00 p.m. ET at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The Utes will look to build off their success as Pac-12 champions this season, while Penn State hopes to prove that they can compete on a national level alongside Ohio State and Michigan.

This game is a pick-em at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 53. The officiating crew is from the Big 12, while Penn State represents the Big Ten and Utah hails from the Pac-12, so neither team will have referees from their conference on the field.
