The Bearcats (led by future USC coach Luke Fickell) and the Tigers are the most common opponents this week. It’s not too often that a win causes a drop in bowl projections, but that’s exactly what happened for CBS Sports’ picks between Weeks 1 and 2. This is probably due largely to Oregon’s win over Ohio State, but Penn State just needs to take care of their business, continuing with Auburn Saturday at 7:30.
