Beaver Stadium is known as one of the most intimidating atmospheres in college football. When Penn State is on the schedule, opponents usually prefer to have that game at home.

That’s not the case for No. 6 Michigan, which will have to travel to Happy Valley this weekend for a marquee showdown between two blueblood programs. The Wolverines are certainly aware of the type of environment they’re walking into on Saturday.

But it doesn’t mean Michigan is scared about the situation.

In a video shared on social media by Michigan football, defensive lineman Taylor Upshaw talked about the opportunity for the Wolverines to notch another big win in a hostile environment. He says it’s something the team looks forward to this year.

“There has been a narrative, like it’s scary going on road games. It’s fun for us,” Upshaw said. “We look forward to the big crowd, the noise. It’s just a great football environment, a great place to play football. That’s how we feel about it.”

Michigan enters the game with an 8-1 record and still has a chance to win the B1G East and earn a trip to the B1G Championship Game and College Football Playoff. At 6-3, the Nittany Lions are looking to play the spoiler role.

Saturday should provide us with a really fun matchup between two really skilled teams.
