The Lions did not crack the College Football Playoff despite winning the Big Ten title, 38-31, over Wisconsin on Saturday night. The final committee rankings slotted PSU at No. 5, ahead of Michigan at No. 6.

It’s not yet clear who PSU will face in Pasadena, Calif., on Jan. 2; that information will be released on ESPN around 2:30 p.m. EST.

“Obviously the Rose Bowl, and I hear people on TV talking about that they feel like — they feel like maybe the playoff has taken away from the bowls,” head coach James Franklin said on Saturday night. “Are you kidding me? The Rose Bowl? It doesn’t get a whole lot better than that.”
