Penn State is in East Lansing this afternoon for a potential trap game with Michigan State.
The 7-0 Nittany Lions are looking to keep their perfect record intact and Michigan State is looking to put an end to its two-game losing slide, having suffered back-to-back road defeats – at then-No. 4 Ohio State 34-10, followed by a 38-0 shutout at then-No. 8 Wisconsin in Week 7.
Sparty is averaging the 21st-fewest rushing yards per game in the nation at 117.1 and the Lions are allowing the fourth-fewest rushing yards in college football.
Overall, Penn State has a better offense and defense and should secure its first win over Michigan State since 2016.
