Since this is being discussed over at BHGP and some people are afraid to venture into enemy territory, I figured I'd ask the question over here? What's the Penn State fans' opinion of this newfound rivalry closing out our years?
My personal opinion:
Nope. There isn’t a team I’d rather play in primetime than Penn State. It would be a shame to lose the chance at that and have it just wash out as another end of the year game. No matter who Iowa plays that weekend, the spot light is on Michigan-tOSU and probably always will be. These days, when Iowa plays PSU, it’s a can’t miss game for the rest of the college football loving country and that exposure just isn’t gonna happen with anybody else. When people outside the conference circle BigXI games to pay attention to at the beginning of the year, it’s Mich-tOSU, Mich-ND, tOSU-USC, & Iowa-PSU. Penn State is viewed as a traditional power, and having this game as a flagship game for the BigXI is awesome.
Just my $0.02. Whatcha got?
