For the first time since 19-97, Penn State Football will head back to the Fiest Bowl in Phoenix, Arizona.

The game will take place on December 30th.

But if you're planning a trip to see the Nittany Lions in action, you may want to plan it fast.

Tiffany Trinks with Bailey Coach in York says they have room for 150 people on a chartered flight to Phoenix.

And if you're interested, you're still in luck.

"This one we still have well over 100 available,” Trinks said.

But it will cost you, the flight package starts at just under $2,300, but they say you'll be set for the weekend.

“The air package it comes with the pre-paid flight, that’s included into it, and then you also have the baggage fees taken care of, you also have the hotel accommodations, round-trip airport transportation, luggage handling, the Fiesta Bowl pep rally, game day transfers, so on the day of the game they actually get a transfer to the game and back to the hotel.”

They also offer you a chance to book your own airfare, but still get all the amenities.

That will run you just shy of $1,200.

So what if you decide to do it all on your own?

According to, flights on Monday night from Harrisburg cost around $900.

Flying out of Baltimore is your cheapest option with flights coming in around $628 and if you want to take a flight from Philadelphia, that will cost you around $713.

Then you have the cost of tickets, hotels and possibly a rental car.

This is what some PSU fans had to say about making the trip.

"It is probably more money than I have, especially around the holidays and it is just a little too far for me to make that trip,” Penn State student Natalie Schwer said.

"I decided not to go because I just wasn’t as excited to be matched up against Washington. I was looking for a different bowl game or a different match up, which we sadly didn’t get.” Penn State fan Jacob Steidinger said.
