Michigan will enter Saturday’s contest with Penn State with a two-game lead in the Big Ten and a top 10 ranking. Yet, Vegas is ever so slightly in favor of the Nittany Lions ahead of their showdown with Michigan. Penn State has opened at -1, with an over/under of 51.

The Wolverines began the season 7-0, rising as high as #6 in the AP Poll. However, they would fall short to Michigan State for the first loss of the season, before bouncing back with a 29-7 victory over Indiana on Saturday Night.

Penn State snapped a three-game skid on Saturday with a 31-14 win at Maryland on Saturday.

The Nittany Lions have won three of the last four against the Wolverines, including a 27-17 victory in 2020. It would be Penn State’s first win of the season, snapping an ugly 0-5 start to the season that ended on a four game win streak.

The game will kick off at noon and be aired on ABC.
