Would that be to the Orange Bowl? Perhaps the Fiesta?
Only a year after yet another losing season ended with cries for the coach who has won more games than anyone but Bobby Bowden to retire or be nudged aside, Joe Paterno, Penn State's 78-year-old sideline icon, has the Nittany Lions on their way to a bowl championship series game.
The only question is which one.
With a 31-22 victory over Michigan State on Saturday at Spartan Stadium, fifth-ranked Penn State tied No. 9 Ohio State for the Big Ten title and claimed the conference's berth in a BCS game by virtue of a victory over Ohio State last month.
"They all want to take me out tonight," Paterno said as his players celebrated. "I said, 'No way.' "
In one of the better bits of judgment exhibited by rejoicing athletes, the Penn State players refrained from dumping the water bucket on their coach.
"They saw me blowing my nose," Paterno said. "We've got another game to play. This thing isn't over yet."
No, it isn't.
After four losing seasons in five years, Penn State is 10-1 — and oh-so-close to being undefeated after losing to Michigan on the final play of a game last month.

"A lot of people doubted us. A lot of people doubted Joe Paterno," quarterback Michael Robinson said.
The players got a title for their coach.
"But as bad as we wanted it for him, he wanted it for us," defensive end Tamba Hali said.
Paterno didn't want to talk about himself.
"These kids are the ones. They went through all that junk, the losing years, everybody doubting them."
Whether Paterno reinvented himself in his 40th year as the Nittany Lions' coach is hard to say.
He looks much the same, a slightly hunched figure on the sideline who still wears a shirt and tie under his heavy blue coat, and he insists he always knew his team wasn't far away.
