Rutgers’ season probably reached a low point last week, when they were absolutely flattened, 49-0, by a Michigan State team that had no conference wins prior to that. The Scarlet Knights have been competitive in some games, but they are far and away the worst team in the Big Ten, and probably the worst power conference team in the country.The Penn State Nittany Lions are ninth in this week’s AP Poll and continue to climb the ranks behind their 8-2 record. They are 6-1 in Big Ten play with a 24-21 upset victory over Ohio State this season.
The defense came up big last week, forcing five fumbles against Indiana last week in a 45-31 victory. Nittany Lions defense only allowed 110 rushing yards on 41 carries as well.Penn State has had issues converting third downs this season, and has generally not been a particularly efficient offense. But they’ve made up for those shortcomings by being incredibly explosive. A matchup like this gives them a chance to work on their efficiency issues, which they’ll need to improve on if they’re going to make a run to a New Year’s Six game, or maybe even the Playoff.
