This Saturday has a much more intriguing slate of Big Ten games than what last Saturday gave us.
Let’s be honest. Last week, only one team ranked in the top 25 from the B1G was in action. This week alone, there are two games featuring four top 25 teams.
One of those games is No. 17 Minnesota hosting No. 4 Penn State. The Nittany Lions are unbeaten, but so are the Golden Gophers. The public is giving Penn State much more love though, and even on the road, Vegas thinks the Nittany Lions are around a touchdown better than their B1G opponent.
What does Paul Finebaum think? He revealed his winner Saturday morning on SportsCenter:
“I’ve got Penn State because they’re not looking ahead to Ohio State in a couple weeks,” Finebaum said. Very tough opponent today, but their defense is just punishing and I think it’ll be a little bit too much for Minnesota, who is having an amazing season under P.J. Fleck.”
Minnesota-Penn State is scheduled for a noon ET kickoff at Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium. The game will be televised on ABC.
