Penn St. 27 @ Michigan St. 30 | 11/27 | 8:30 PM UTC

Penn St. -2

LOSS

ANALYSIS: The home side is ravaged by injuries -- too many to recount here. Penn State's Sean Clifford and teammates have recovered from a flu bug, and the QB takes aim at a defense ranked last in the FBS in passing yards permitted (339.9 per game). The Nittany Lions have thrown for the 25th most yards (270.9 per game) and figure to travel by air with ease. On defense, the visitors have yielded 15.5 points per game, fourth fewest in the country. Both head coaches received new, enhanced contracts this week; the Spartans’ Mel Tucker would validate his with an improbable win.
