The consensus about Penn State’s opponent is even more pronounced this week, as three different people pick the Nittany Lions to face Auburn, and four of the five prognosticators believe the destination will be either the Peach or Citrus Bowl.. Having said that, Bonagura selecting Mississippi State as the opponent for the Citrus is quite intriguing. After watching bits and pieces of the Bulldogs in their first two games, I certainly wouldn’t want to face JoeMo after a month of preparation.
