Ryan Field at 11 a.m. looms for the Nittany Lions this week and as odd as Kinnick Stadium gets at night, Ryan in the morning is not dissimilar. Here are our bold predictions for week six:
Miles Sanders rushes for more yards that Saquon Barkley, but Saquon has more yards from scrimmage.
Blake Gillikin blasts a 60-yard punt, Juwan Johnson has two touchdown receptions, Jason Cabinda has 14+ tackles for the second week in a row, and Christian Campbell picks off a pass on Northwestern's first possession.
Penn State gets a defensive touchdown, a safety, and shuts out Northwestern in the second half.
Penn State won't score in the first quarter.
Once again, Penn State is shut out in the second quarter, letting Northwestern back into the game.
Penn State defense forces 4 turnovers. Penn State offense has four touchdowns from four different Nittany Lions and of course we win the game.
The defense gets not one, but two pick-sixes. (Coincidentally, Tim, I also will be getting not one, but two pick sixes on Saturday).
Penn State breaks the 50-point mark in conference play for the first time this season.
