We have a ton on the line for this game on Saturday night. With two perfect teams facing each other, there is more than just conference title hopes on the line. These teams have the bigger picture of the College Football Playoff ahead.

Penn State Nittany lions
Penn State has proven to be one of the best teams in the country and is firmly sitting inside of the top 10 in the rankings. The Nittany Lions have been able to do everything they need to do to win games, but have shown one of the most dominant defenses in the country as well.
The Nittany Lion defenses come into Saturday only giving up 9 points a game and have been incredible against the run. The Nittany Lions have only allowed 68 yards a game on the ground in eight games. You heard that right, just 68 yards given up on the ground each game. The Nittany Lions will use their stout defensive line to overpower the Gophers this week.
Watch for the Lions to come out strong on offense and use the defense to take the air out of the crowd on Saturday. It will be a cold, and possibly rainy game in Minnesota, even more, a reason to think the defense will step up for Penn State.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
Minnesota has been able to shock most of the college football world with their perfect record through the first eight games of the season. Unline the Nittany Lions, the Gophers have shown that they can stop the run and the pass. They have not shown any weakness on defense and have clamped down using their defense to win football games.
This could be one of the lowest scoring affairs that we have seen all year with the Gophers and Penn State having such great defenses. watch out for quarterback Tanner Morgan to shine and show some grit on the offensive end to surprise Penn State.
Morgan and the Golden Gophers are going to have to surprise people on offense to win this football game. If the Gophers can get the crowd going early and keep the home-field advantage we could see a massive upset.

Penn State has shown that they are just too good, even on the road to be taken down by the Golden Gophers. The Gophers may be undefeated but they have yet to play a top team like Penn State and could struggle mightily against a top-ranked defense. Take Penn State here to take this one home.

The defenses are going to shine here on Saturday afternoon. This is not going to be a shootout by any means and turnovers are going to be a huge key in this one. Extra possessions for the Nittany Lions are going to be a key for them to put this one away.
