The Penn State Nittany Lions will play the Michigan Wolverines in a Big Ten Conference Game on Saturday afternoon at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The Penn State Nittany Lions are 5-0 (2-0) this season after they defeated Northwestern by a score of 17-7 in their last game. Penn State held Northwestern to 241 total yards and forced three turnovers in the win. The Penn State offense is averaging 34.4 points per game with 251 passing yards per game and 192.6 rushing yards per game. Sean Clifford has thrown for 1,030 yards, nine touchdowns, and two interceptions for the Nittany Lions this season. Nicholas Singleton has rushed for 463 yards and five scores, while Parker Washington has caught 20 passes for 285 yards for Penn State. The Penn State defense is allowing 14.8 points per game and 341.8 yards per game.

The Michigan Wolverines are 6-0 (3-0) this season after they defeated Indiana by a score of 31-10 in Week 6. Michigan held Indiana to 222 yards and forced one turnover in the game. The Michigan offense is averaging 43 points per game with 246.3 passing yards per game and 212.3 rushing yards per game. J.J. McCarthy has thrown for 1,152 yards, nine touchdowns, and one interception for the Wolverines this season. Blake Corum has rushed for 735 yards and 11 scores, while Ronnie Bell has caught 30 passes for 390 yards and one touchdown for Michigan. The Michigan defense is giving up 11.3 points per game and 247 yards per game.

Penn State is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 October games. The under is 6-2 in Penn State’s last 8 conference games. Michigan is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 conference games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games. The under is 4-1 in Michigan’s last 5 home games. The favorite is 7-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

This should be a very good game between two top ten teams. Penn State is coming off of a bye week after they struggled with Northwestern in bad weather conditions. Michigan has not looked as good as some people thought they would, but has still managed to win all but one of their games by double-digits. Penn State usually struggles when they play at Michigan, but I think they will have success moving the ball. I like the over here.
