Week twelve of the college football season and this is a big time Big Ten showdown.
In this game the Indiana Hoosiers make the trip to Beaver Stadium in University Park to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions. The Nittany Lions have won the last five games played between the two teams.
The Indiana Hoosiers have been a bottom dweller for many years in the Big Ten but it appears they are finally turning the corner. Coming into this game they have a 7-2 record and a win in this game could change their entire program.
The Hoosiers lost their starting quarterback for the season but the good news is they have Peyton Ramsey who was the starter last year who can fill in and has already played a lot this year. On the season he has thrown for 1,302 yards, nine touchdowns, and three interceptions.
On the defensive side the Hoosiers haven’t been too bad giving up 20 points and it’s going to be important the defense is good. If they can stop the big play, and have success in the red zone keeping them out of the red zone they could be in good shape to keep this close and maybe even pull the upset.
It’s going to take a perfect game, but the Nittany Lions lost to the Gophers last year, maybe the same thing can happen in this game.
Penn State Nittany Lions
On the other side of this matchup is the Penn State Nittany Lions who were having a great season until they went on the road last week and lost to Minnesota. Minnesota is a good team but the Nittany Lions have to feel like they could have won that game.
The Nittany Lions are a good offensive team averaging 37.1 points per game, and are led by Sean Clifford who has been good this year, expect against the Gophers when he had some turnover issues.
In this game the Nittany Lions need to try and make a statement and run up the score. If they can attack the Hoosiers defense and have the fans behind them, they should have a lot of success.
