A Big 10 showdown in Evanston, Illinois takes place Saturday afternoon when the Penn State Nittany Lions come into town and face off with the Wildcats of Northwestern.
Northwestern is coming off a great win against Nebraska after getting dominated by Iowa and Michigan in back to back games.
Penn State has been rolling as of late beating both Illinois and Maryland after losing to a great Ohio State team in the Horseshoe.
Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State led by QB Christian Hackenberg is playing probably their best football they have all season. With a healthy Hackenberg back throwing passes the way he usually does led the Nittany Lions to a 39-0 win over Illinois last Saturday totalling 266 passing yards and adding two scores through the air as well.
Facing a very good Northwestern team Penn State has to continue to play the football they have been playing, sloppy football like they were playing at the beginning of the year will get them in deep trouble here on the road. The running game struggles almost every game and with the big Northwestern defensive front this wil be a big problem.
Northwestern is touting a true Freshman at the helm of their offense at QB. Freshman Clayton Thorson has passed for over 1000 yards and added 6 Touchdowns and will be a pivotal part in order for the Wildcats to fend off Penn State at home this weekend. Northwestern has historically been very good at home, but this Penn State team that was playing almost dreadfully bad the start of the season and no wis just lights out on offense really finding themselves.
This game might come down to the defense and Northwestern wins that battle hands down. Northwestern should really bottle the one dimensional Penn State team up by playing a zone look and making Penn State really try to run the ball.

I really like Penn State in this one, they are the underdogs but have been playing really well lately. Northwestern has the better defense for sure but their offense is just terrible and even though they have been getting better and better they still have a long ways to go before they start beating up on teams like Penn State.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Penn State ATS
Penn State the underdogs here is laughable at best, they should really be the favorites so this should be the popular pick for the week betting on the Penn State team to do well the rest of the year.
