M. The final determination will probably be made Sunday, after the Bowl Championship Series matchups are announced.
It will be coach Joe Paterno's record 34th bowl appearance - 22 of them victories - and the 500th game of his coaching career (371-125-3).
``This team has worked hard all season and has been a great group to work with,'' Paterno said in a statement. ``I'm happy for the squad that their efforts will be rewarded with an opportunity to go to San Antonio.''
Penn State's only other appearance in the Alamo Bowl was in 1999, a 24-0 win over the Aggies.
