Penn State vs Rutgers


penn stateThe Penn State Nittany Lions are set to take their team on the road this week in order to play the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in a matchup between two undefeated teams that both play in the Big 10 conference. This will be both teams 1st in conference game this year.

The Nittany Lions are coming into this week having beaten the Akron Zips last week by the score of 21-3 in a game that was won largely due to Penn States defense. Rutgers is coming into this game having beaten the Howard Bison last week in their opening game at home, winning by the score of 38-25.

The Nittany Lions are looking to add to their undefeated record and push themselves to 3-0 as they pursue their 1st win in the Big 10 this year as they are looking to assert themselves as legitimate contenders within the conference. If the Nittany Lions are going to be successful in that endeavor, they are going to need to get this win on the road, as well as continue to prove themselves against other tough competition in the Big 10 as the year goes on.

The Scarlet Knights are also enjoying a solid 2-0 start and are seeking their 1st in conference win of the year as well. Rutgers have not, historically, been a particularly potent opponent over the years and are looking to turn around their reputation. If they hope to do so , they will need to beat the Lions this week if they hope to become any semblance of a force in the Big 10 conference.

While Rutgers would love to get the win over the Nittany Lions, they would be hard pressed to do so, even though they are playing at home. The Nittany Lions are going to get the win this week, beating Rutgers 24-13.
