Sports Odds & ATS College Football Predictions: Penn State Nittany Lions vs Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Penn State Nittany Lions vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Nittany Lions: 8-2 (2-2 V)
Scarlet Knights: 2-8 (2-4 H)
When: 8:00 PM ET, Saturday, November 19, 2016
Where: High Points Solutions Stadium, Piscataway, New Jersey
TV: Big Ten Network

A come-from-behind 45-31 victory at Indiana led by quarterback Trace McSorley combined with the losses of five top-10 teams has opened a path for the 8th-ranked Nittany Lions not only to the Big Ten title but also the College Football Playoff.

However, before Penn State can dream of those outcomes they must avoid a letdown Saturday at struggling Rutgers. With star running back Saquon Barkley (career-high 33 carries, 58 yards) bottled up all day by the Hoosiers running behind an offensive line that lost two starters during the contest and is now down four in recent weeks.

McSorley fought off a slight ankle sprain to complete 6-of-9 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown after Indiana had taken a 24-14 lead with 3:13 remaining in the third quarter.

“He’s a tough sucker,” Penn State third-year coach James Franklin said of his quarterback. “He is tough, he is smart, he is resilient. The guys believe in him. They really do.”

Bovada has the Penn State listed as 28-points favorites and the game's total is sitting at 56½ according to MyBookie.ag
