NEW YORK -- Now they can call it the Penn Stripe Bowl. Penn State stamped its name on Yankee Stadium and the bowl season Saturday, when it used multiple instances of last-minute heroics from kicker Sam Ficken to take a 31-30 overtime win over Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl.
The game was played in front of 49,012 fans, breaking last year's record of 47,122 for the contest between Notre Dame and Rutgers. It was the first sellout in the five-year history of the bowl.
