It will be an expanded version of the Big Ten in 2011 with the addition of Nebraska to the ranks. The Cornhuskers defection from the Big 12 not only raises the total number of teams in this conference to 12, …
The recent realignment of a few teams in college football has set up divisions in two major conferences for the first time in their history. The addition of Nebraska to the Big Ten gives the conference 12 teams, which have …
Penn State hosts Michigan State on Saturday with a trip to the Rose Bowl on the line. The Nittany Lions are 6-1 in the Big 10 and with a win will clinch the Big 10 title and a trip to Pasadena. Penn State, Michigan State and Ohio State all have 6-1 records in the conference but the Nittany Lions have already beaten the Buckeyes so a win against the Spartans would put them in the Rose Bowl. For Michigan State to win the title they would have to upset Penn State and then have Michigan upset Ohio State. Their chances of upsetting the Nittany Lions are probably better than having a terrible Michigan team upset the Buckeyes.
First place in the Big-10 is on the line Saturday night as #10 Ohio State hosts #3 Penn State. This game could have national title implications as the Nittany Lions don’t have anyone on their remaining schedule that stacks up to Ohio State. The problem for Penn State is that they haven’t won at Columbus in 30 years.
The Wisconsin Badgers will try and avoid starting 0-3 in the Big 10 as they host 6th ranked Penn State on Saturday night. To get the win the Badgers will have to slow down the Big Ten’s best offense. The Nittany Lions are averaging almost 500 yards per game, 9th best in the nation. They are scoring 44.8 points per game which ranks 7th in the country. Quarterback Daryll Clark has thrown 9 touchdowns with only one interception this season while running back Evan Royster has eight touchdowns this season.
The unbeaten and 12th ranked Penn State Nittany Lions finally face a test this Saturday night as they host 22nd ranked Illinois in a nationally televised game on ABC. The Nittany Lions have been impressive so far this season but haven’t played anyone. They should find out something this week as Illinois and quarterback Juice Williams come to town. Williams has the potential to make big plays but he also makes mistakes.
Two teams going in opposite directions meet on Saturday as 19th ranked Penn State hosts Oregon State. The Nittany Lions routed Coastal Carolina last week while the Beavers were upset by Stanford. Penn State played very well last week against an overmatched Coastal Carolina club but this week they will get a much stiffer test from Oregon State.
