A disappointing loss to Michigan leaves the Nittany Lions at 6-3. What was the effect of the loss on their bowl fate?

SB Nation

CBS Sports:

ESPN:

Record in Pinstripe Bowl: 1-0 (Win against Boston College)

As expected, the loss in Ann Arbor has greatly changed Penn State’s postseason trajectory. SB Nation moves the Nittany Lions to Orlando to face the Gators. Meanwhile, 247 believes Trace McSorley will finish his Nittany Lion career where he started it in the TaxSlayer Bowl. CBS Sports thinks Syracuse will have a de facto home game in Yankee Stadium against the Blue and White, while ESPN’s Sherman thinks the opposing head coach in the Citrus Bowl will be Joe Moorhead.
