Saturday November 10th brings us a Big Ten football matchup as the Wisconsin Badgers travel to Happy Valley to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in a game of importance to both schools.
Wisconsin is coming off a win last week at Rutgers, while Penn State got demolished on the road at Michigan in their last game.
Wisconsin bounced back nicely last week after Northwestern upset them at home two weeks ago. But there was a loss within the win on the road at Rutgers. Badgers QB Alex Hornibrook left the game with an injury and is listed as doubtful for the Penn State matchup.
A win against Rutgers isn’t exactly saying the Badgers are back, as Rutgers is one of the worst teams in the nation, but a win on the road a week after a devastating loss at home is always something to be proud of.
Wisconsin shut down the Rutgers run game last week, allowing only 72 yards, but they gave up 261 yards through the air. Wisconsin will have to tighten up their pass defense if they want to beat a Penn State team on the road.
Penn State Nittany Lions
In a game that Penn State had to win last week, they didn’t even show up against the Wolverines at Michigan Stadium. This game here on Saturday now becomes a must win game if they Nittany Lions want to go to any Bowl Game of significance.
It has been an up and down season for Penn State this year. Two of their three losses should’ve actually been wins for the Nittany Lions, and a loss when you shoot yourself in the foot tends to take the wind out of the sails.
One thing Penn State will need to do early against Wisconsin is get the ball moving of offense. That was a major contributor to their loss last week when they only mustered 186 total yards. You just can’t win football games when you don’t move the ball on offense. They will need to tighten up their rush defense as well, as they gave up 259 rushing yards to the Wolverines last week.

Free Week 11 NCAA Football Pick
I expect Penn State to look like a different football team on Saturday in front of their home crowd. Look for them to play lock down defense and come away with a victory in this game.

I think this will be a closer game than the spread is calling for. The betting total isn’t out of reach, but I think this will be a low scoring battle.
Take Penn State to win the game. Take Wisconsin to cover the spread, and finally, take the UNDER in this one.
