FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff crew is on hand at Penn State for the major Week 11 showdown with Michigan. That matchup received some extra drama with the Friday suspension of Wolverine head coach Jim Harbaugh.

The head coach has been suspended due to the ongoing sign-stealing allegations and investigation into Michigan’s football program. That investigation has led to the resignation of staffer Connor Stalions, but that was not enough to see the end of the chatter surrounding Ann Arbor.

Harbaugh is currently suspended for the remainder of the regular season, and a temporary restraining order filed by Michigan was not granted prior to the game against Penn State. While the Wolverines will fight that in the days to come, Harbaugh is not on the sidelines for the crucial B1G East game.

Despite missing Harbaugh, it did not change how the Big Noon Kickoff crew is picking the game. The crew was unanimous in picking Michigan to pull out a win on the road, though most analysts are expecting a tight game.

Here are the picks:

  • Urban Meyer: 32-27 Michigan
  • Charles Woodson: 30-14 Michigan
  • Matt Leinart: 28-17 Michigan
  • Mark Ingram: 24-20 Michigan
  • Brady Quinn: 27-24
