Staff Predictions: No. 18 Penn State vs

21 Octobre 2018

When it comes to the Penn State offense, most people immediately think of Trace McSorley, and for good reason.

No. 3 Ohio State and No. 12 MI are unbeaten in conference play while the Nittany Lions and Spartans are coming off losses. The fifth-year senior entered Saturday's game 40 yards shy from passing Christian Hackenberg's total of 8,427.

Quarterback Alex Hornibrook completed just 7 of 20 passes for 100 yards with two interceptions.

So what college football picks can you make with confidence in Week 7?

Most deceiving statistic: Miles Sanders rushed 17 times for 162 yards, but two of those carries went for 126 yards. They led each of those games in the fourth quarter. I didn't do enough of a good job today to get it done in the passing game.

"We played against a number of these guys a year ago and know what they did to us and how we had to fight for the yards", Chryst said.

"What happens is, in any organization, with any CEO, with any team, there are typically three steps forward and one step back and that step back is painful and you've got to learn from it", Franklin said.

As a sports fanatic, I have seen a lot of awful performances by quarterbacks in my lifetime. The Lions are outscoring all opponents by an average of 28 points per game, so laying two touchdowns doesn't seem the least bit obscene.

The trick almost worked, but Penn State's Garrett Taylor broke it up, keeping the score 17-14.

IN is more than capable of giving Penn State some problems with freshman running back Stevie Scott and sophomore quarterback Peyton Ramsey providing a youthful spark on offense, but the defense has been leaving opposing offenses too many opportunities.

McSorley gained three yards on first down before Sanders was stuffed for a one-yard loss on second down.

Worst call: (Tie): The low-percentage fade to Juwan Johnson on third-and-goal from the Michigan State 3 while tied at 14 in the fourth quarter and the second-and-7 handoff to Sanders from the Nits' 31 with 1:41 left.

Odds: Penn State is a 14 point favorite.

As we've said and will continue to say against bigger, stronger and faster teams, IN needs to use four and five wide sets and try to attack with the best position on its team - wide receiver. "I didn't execute right".

I've said all but once this season that the upcoming game will be too close for comfort, so I may as well stick with that. "I've got to be better".

Michigan State's O-line has been lousy this season, crippling the team's running game and putting all the pressure on quarterback Brian Lewerke.

This is a strong showing from a group that was supposed to have a huge impact for a highly touted Badger offense but has largely failed to make a lasting impression this season. "But we've got to figure out how to win those". "We can't start pointing fingers", McSorley said.

"We started that process. We've got to come together and support each other more than ever right now".
