Saturday November, 3rd brings us critical matchup in the Big Ten East division as the Penn State Nittany Lions head west to Ann Arbor to take on the Michigan Wolverines at the Big House.
Penn State is coming off of a six point win against #18 Iowa a week ago, while Michigan has had a bye week to reflect on their win over cross-state rivals the Michigan State Spartans by a score of 21-7.
#18 Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State has to come into this game with a win or go home mentality. Their loss to Michigan State a few weeks back really put them in a bad place in the Big Ten East standings. Now sitting 4th in the division, a path to the Conference Championship Game looks like a dead end.
Maybe, just maybe, they can still get an invitation to the Rose Bowl, if either Ohio State or Michigan make the College Football Playoff, but the Nittany Lions already lost their chance to gain the tie-break with the Buckeyes, so once again, this is a must win game for Penn State.
The Penn State defense played very well in their last game against Iowa, they will need to play even better this week against the Wolverines. Iowa only gained 135 rushing yards against the Nittany Lions, and only added 215 yards through the air. The biggest stat in my eyes was 3rd down efficiency on defense. Penn State held Iowa to a 7 for 20 mark on third downs. They will have to play large on 3rd downs on Saturday as well.
#5 Michigan Wolverines
If Michigan can walk away with the win here on Saturday, they are pretty much home free for the Playoffs. Well, there’s still that game against Ohio State in a few weeks.
Despite their week one loss to #4 Notre Dame, and their scare at home against Northwestern, the Wolverines season has been nearly flawless. At this point they do look like a sure thing pick for the College Football Playoff.
Michigan’s defense completely shut down the Spartans offense in their last game, giving up only 94 total yards. That is not a typo. I’ve said it all year long that Michigan State was a highly overrated football team, but they stuck around in the Top 25 for some reason for over half of the season, so to shut them down like Michigan did is something to speak of.

Free Week 10 NCAA Football Pick
Call me crazy, but I’m going to pick Penn State to win this game on the road Saturday, and I think you should too. Yes, they barely squeaked by Iowa last week at home, but this is make or break time for the Nittany Lions.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Penn State +10.5. Free ATS or O/U final score pick provided below!
Michigan played really tough defensively last time out, but Penn State has a much better offense than the Spartans do.
Take Penn State to win the game, and cover the spread, and take the OVER while you’re at it too. 53 points is not a lot for two powerful offenses.
