Things trend away from the NY6 as the Pac-12 will now likely get two teams into the show with Washington's upset of Wazzou.

6. Jerry Palm - CBS Sports, Jason Kirk - SB Nation, Brad Crawford - 247 Sports

  • Citrus Bowl - Camping World Stadium, Orlando, Fla. - Jan. 1, 2019, 1 p.m. EST (ABC)
  • Penn State vs. Kentucky

RLR Take: Siiiiiiiigh. If you've read this roundup the last two weeks, you know I am no fan of this matchup. No one cares about Kentucky football.

5. Bryan Fischer - NBC Sports, Mitch Sherman - ESPN

  • Outback Bowl - Raymond James Stadium, Tampa Fla. - Jan 1, 2019, 12 p.m. EST (ESPN2)
  • Penn State vs. Kentucky

RLR take: See above. Also if you have read my other musings, I've picked Tampa over Orlando for adult-style fun vs. Disney style fun, but it's mostly bluster.

4. Kyle Bonagura - ESPN 

  • Citrus Bowl - Camping World Stadium, Orlando, Fla. - Jan. 1, 2019, 1 p.m. EST (ABC)
  • Penn State vs. LSU

RLR take: OK, OK. This moves the needle of both fan bases a lot more. I'm sure some Tiger faithful would like a shot to avenge 2011's mud-pit loss. The Citrus Bowl has an artificial surface now, so no more ankles-deep slog possibilities.

3. Joe Tansey - Bleacher Report, Bill bender - The sporting news

  • Outback Bowl - Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Fla. - Jan 1, 2019, 12 p.m. EST (ESPN2)
  • Penn State vs. LSU

RLR take: Tampa still has grass! And lots of craft breweries! Let's mash it up by the bay.

2. ERIC SINGLE - SPORTS ILLUSTRATED

  • Citrus Bowl - Camping World Stadium, Orlando, Fla. - Jan. 1, 2019, 1 p.m. EST (ABC)
  • Penn State vs. Mississippi State

RLR take: Gimmie that Coach Tuds matchup. I need to see Joe Moorhead on my tv for four hours. Just let me have these memories.

1. Bill Bender - The Sporting News

  • Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl - Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta - Dec. 29, 12 p.m. (ESPN)
  • Penn State vs. Florida

RLR take: A lone writer with courage emerges. Bender realizes the brand power of the Nittany Lion, and is the only one still keeping PSU in the NY6. Giddy-up!
