Penn State's young core leads the way in Rose Bowl

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) As Penn State players celebrated their Rose Bowl win over Utah, there was a belief they can and should be back in 364 days when it hosts a College Football Playoff semifinal.

"I think we're contending for everything, you know what I'm saying? This team's gonna take this to the next level, man, and just continue to keep getting better," defensive end Nick Tarburton said.

Tarburton won't be a part of the 2023 Nittany Lions, having previously announced he will enter the NFL Draft, but a dominant 35-21 win driven by the team's younger players showed the potential behind that confidence.
