Chris ‘The Bear’ Fallica and Greg McElroy walked through their Week 8 picks on Thursday morning’s edition of Always College Football.

Both picked Penn State to get the job done against the Golden Gophers. The Bear explained why he would specifically be taking Penn State.

“I would probably lean towards Penn State at home,” Fallica said. “I know the line will be a little concerning, but I think Penn State has more answers offensively, especially if both quarterbacks are out, Morgan and then Sean Clifford with Penn State… I don’t know how Minnesota will be able to move the ball offensively.”

Penn State played well against Michigan before the wheels came off later in the second half. The Nittany Lions lost 41-17 in their first ranked matchup of the season and are set on proving they belong.

There’s quite the climb in front of them. Let’s see if they can get past Minnesota before an eventual matchup with the top-ranked B1G Buckeyes.
