Penn State vs. Florida State: 2006 Orange Bowl ranked 8th best bowl of decade

Paul SalmanSenior Analyst IMay 20, 2008

ESPN ranks the top 10 bowls of the decade and ranks Penn State vs. Florida State as the 8th best of the decade.

For me this is the best GAME, let alone bowl game, I have ever been too, let alone just seen in general.

Of course I am biased, but being at the classic match up to see Joe Paterno vs. Bobby Bowden is something I will never forget. The game went to triple overtime, and ran me through every emotion you can have during a sporting event.

This game probably shaved a couple years off my life, and for that I will always be grateful to the 2006 Orange Bowl, where the Big Ten Champions Penn State Nittany Lions beat Florida State in triple OT 26-23.
