ESPN's FPI predicts outcome of Michigan-Penn State showdown
No. 7 Michigan and Penn State are due for another huge matchup in Happy Valley on Saturday.
Michigan looks to finish the last quarter of the 2021 season on a strong note as the Wolverines look to get to the B1G Championship Game for a potential College Football Playoff berth. On the other side, Penn State looks to continue its rebound following a tough three-game conference losing streak.
According to ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI), Michigan has a 54.4% projection to defeat Penn State on the road. Michigan is projected to win two of the last three games of the 2021 season with the lone loss expected to be against No. 5 Ohio State.
The Wolverines look to break their two-game losing steak vs. Penn State as they have won one game in the last four matchups. Last season, Penn State defeated Michigan on the road in Ann Arbor 27-17.
The kick-off is set for 12 pm EST on Saturday.
