They're already going bowling, but how much higher can they climb?

Let's take a look at Penn State's 2015 schedule.

Date Opponent Result
9/5/15 @ Temple L 10-27
9/12/15 vs. Buffalo W 27-14
9/19/15 vs. Rutgers W 28-3
9/26/15 vs. San Diego State W 37-21
10/3/15 vs. Army W 20-14
10/10/15 vs. Indiana W 29-7
10/17/15 @ Ohio State L 10-38
10/24/15 @ Maryland W 31-30
10/31/15 vs. Illinois TBD
11/7/15 @ Northwestern TBD
11/21/15 vs. Michigan TBD
11/28/15 @ Michigan State TBD

Judging by what you've seen from Penn State over the course of 2015 so far, how many more wins do you think this Penn State team is capable of achieving this season? We've seen the offense succeed in the passing game and the rushing game, albeit not at the same time. We have also seen the offense be, well, not good.

On the flip side, we've seen the Penn State defense be dominant at times. We've also seen them fall victim to option style quarterbacks, in which their aggressiveness gets the better of them.

So the question is, with a game against a "better than you think they are" Illinois team, a still strong but floundering Northwestern team, and the Michigan schools, how many wins are left on the Nittany Lions' schedule?
