This week two matchup will feature the Buffalo Bulls out of the MAC and the Penn State Nittany Lions out of the Big 10. Both teams won their week one game in convincing fashion.
The last meeting between these two teams was back in 2015. Penn State won this game 27-14.
The Bulls lost a ton of talent from last year, including their star quarterback who left for the NFL Draft. They still put a beat down on Robert Morris 38-10 in week one, but will likely not have the same success at Penn State.
The offense totaled 354 yards in their week one game. Usually this may sound like a decent game, but against Robert Morris it does not look very good.
The passing game was terrible as the Bulls put up just 69 yards. Matt Myers went 5 of 10 in this game and had two touchdowns. After only one week of play, the Buffalo passing game ranks 126 out of 130 teams.
The rushing game racked up 285 yards and did most of the work. Jaret Patterson ran for 90 yards on 12 carries an one touchdown. Their quarterback, Matt Myers, also got involved and rushed for 47 yards on 4 carries and scored one touchdown.
The defense also played well as they allowed 240 total yards. They allowed 92 yards through the air and 148 yards on the ground. They also forced one turnover, which is something they will need to do against a powerhouse like Penn State.
Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State absolutely dismantled Idaho in week one, winning 79-7. They had no problem running up the score which helped them cover the huge spread.
On offense, the Nittany Lions totaled 673 yards. They were leading 65-0 before Idaho managed to score their first points.
Their passing game put up 342 yards, which was led by Sean Clifford. He had 280 passing yards and two touchdowns. The backup quarterback, Will Levis, also got involved with 62 passing yards and threw for one touchdown.
The rushing game also looked amazing against the Vandals. As a team, they rushed for 331 yards. Devyn Ford led the way with 107 yards on only six carries. He also scored an 81-yard touchdown. They scored a total of seven touchdowns on the ground alone and five different guys found the end zone running the ball.
The only negative about the Nittany Lions offense was that they were 1 for 8 on third downs. They also fumbled three times, but luckily only lost one of those three fumbles. As long as they clean up their ball security, they will have an easy time in this game.
Defensively, the Nittany Lions pretty much shut Idaho down all game long. The Vandals only had five first downs the entire game and Penn State held them to 145 total yards. Most impressively, they held Idaho to 4 yards rushing on 28 carries. They also held them to 1 for 15 on third down and forced one turnover.

There is no reason to believe that Penn State will struggle in this game. They are at home where they tend to play very well and I think they win this game in a blowout.
