The Wolverines have one of the best offenses in the country, led by quarterback J.J. McCarthy. McCarthy has thrown for 2,700 yards and 20 touchdowns this season, and he also has 400 rushing yards and five touchdowns. Michigan also has a strong running game, led by Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards. Corum has 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns this season, while Edwards has 800 yards and 10 touchdowns.
The Nittany Lions have a balanced offense, led by quarterback Sean Clifford. Clifford has thrown for 2,400 yards and 18 touchdowns this season, and he also has 300 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Penn State also has a good running game, led by Nicholas Singleton and Kaytron Allen. Singleton has 900 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, while Allen has 800 yards and nine touchdowns.
The key to the game will be whether or not Penn State can stop Michigan’s running game. The Wolverines have two of the best running backs in the country in Corum and Edwards, and if they can get going on the ground, it will open up the passing game for McCarthy.
Another key to the game will be whether or not Michigan can pressure Clifford. Clifford has been a good quarterback this season, but he is prone to mistakes when he is under pressure. If Michigan can get after Clifford and force him into mistakes, it could be a long day for the Nittany Lions.
Michigan is the favorite to win this game, and for good reason. They have the better offense and defense, and they are coming into the game with a lot of momentum. However, Penn State is a good team, and they are playing at home. If the Nittany Lions can get a good game from Clifford and their running game, they have a chance to upset the Wolverines.
My prediction is Michigan 35, Penn State 28.
