This has been a very interesting season for Maryland to say the least. This is the final game of the year and they on the road needing one more victory for bowl eligibility. It doesn’t look likely.
Depending on who you ask Penn State might be right where they are supposed to be. They are good not great but if they win this one and their bowl game they are a 10 win team. Not playoffs but still pretty good.
The Terps need one more win and they almost got it last week against Ohio State, losing by just a point. Can they muster enough energy for one final performance to extend their season?
All season long the Terps have been a run first offense and they effective moving the ball. Against OSU they mainly asked Ty Pigrome to play it safe. He made some big plays while Anthony McFarland rushed for 298 yards – against the Buckeyes. If they get him going again they could upset for sure.
The Maryland defense might have given up 52 points to Ohio State but they have mostly been alright this season. They have had success slowing down most passing games giving up just 200ypg through the air. They are going to need to be sharp in that area against a very good Penn State quarterback.
Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State season turned when they couldn’t beat Ohio State at home. If they got that win they probably beat Michigan State the following week and maybe they are 10-1 and in the conversation for the B10 Title game and more.
I don’t know if he is a true pro prospect but there is no doubting that Trace McSorley is a good college player. His numbers are down this season but that might be more about the offensive staff as they lost Joe Moorhead, the OC in the offseason.
The Nittany Lions defense has been good all season long but they don’t punish you in the way that say Michigan’s does. This week it is simple, just stop the run and they should be just fine. That is not a strong suit of the team though so we will see how it plays out.

It is hard not to like Penn State at home in this situation even though Maryland is the team that has much more to play for. Could be some spirit early.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Penn State -13.5
PSU can win this one by a TD per half. The key is getting up early and taking some life out of the Terps.
Look for McSoreley to be sharp in his final home game. He is a tough runner too and will make some plays with his feet to get them to a relatively easy win.
