The destination is finally set and the Penn State is headed to the Fiesta Bowl. As the Lions take on the Huskies at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Fans in and around State College are moving quickly to book trips to Arizona for the big game. We talked to several fans today at a travel agent. Penn State football fans are moving quickly since the announcement. Companies are booked and busy for the weeks ahead. The phones have been ringing nonstop at the Centre for Travel since the Penn State bowl destination was announced. "This is Joann with Centre for Travel travel, may I help you." Since the 1970's they have offered travel packages for Penn State bowl games, but the owner says this is the busiest they have ever been. "To have been very busy, actually much busier than last year with the Rose Bowl." They publicize that the Lions would face Washington in the Fiesta Bowl on December 30. Since the report, fans have moved quickly to book their trips. "This is special because we haven't been to the Fiesta Bowl for many years." Returning to the Fiesta Bowl for the first time since 1997 facing a team they have not seen in 30 years. But it is not easy for everyone to make it to the game. " It is pretty far and costly." Several fans and students say the cost and distance cuts their chance of going. The cheapest flight to Arizona that weekend starts at $825. "It is probably more money than I have, especially around the holidays. It's a little too far for me to make the trip." Another fan said he would be willing to pay the price, but only for a better match up. "I decided not to go because I wasn't excited about being matched up against Washington. I was looking for a different bowl game and a different matchup which sadly we didn't get."
