It has been a long season for the Nittany Lions in 2020 coming into this game with a 1-5 record, although they are coming off of their first win against the Michigan Wolverines last week by a score of 27-17.
The Scarlet Knights have also had a rough time of it this season, only picking up two wins on the season, but they are also coming off of a huge win against Purdue in a game they were solid underdogs in. Rutgers now welcomes in the Nittany Lions on Saturday and both of these teams will look to keep their new found momentum going in what should end up being an interesting game from a betting perspective.
Penn State Nittany Lions
The Nittany Lions put in a solid defensive effort last week against Michigan, as they held the Wolverines under 300 total yards of offense while putting well over 400 yards of their own offense up on the board. Freshman RB Keyvone Lee was the star of the team on offense last time rushing for over 6 yards per carry and amassing 131 rushing yards to go along with his TD.
Sean Clifford should have some success here, as the Scarlet Knights secondary gives up over 260 passing yards per game, so that could end up being a critical matchup in this one given the weapons Penn State has on the outside.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Rutgers Scarlet Knights did get that big win last time out, but watching that one, it felt like Purdue lost that game rather than Rutgers winning it. The kick return touchdown to make the game 30-27 was obviously critical as well as hitting a 60+ yard TD which all helped to get the job done last weekend, but are rather variant types of plays which you can’t count on week after week.

Free Week 14 NCAA Football Pick
The Scarlet Knights are overall unimpressive to me and although Penn State has not been all that great this year either, I am more inclined to trust them to cover this spread as opposed to Rutgers simply down to the differences in the defenses. The Scarlet Knights defense really is not good, and I can see that elevating this Penn State offense enough to get the cover this Saturday.
