#13 PENN ST. NITTANY LIONS (-4.5) @ MICHIGAN WOLVERINES
I know lil Forcier & Coach Dick Rod spoiled my undefeated ATS season when they covered against the Hawkeyes…but I’m not wavering on my stance that the former Mountaineer headmaster is going to kill his freshman phenom QB before season’s end. And even though that same Iowa team bitch-slapped Granpa Joe in Happy Valley, trust me my fellow degenerates, the Gambling Gods have no sense of rhyme or reason. Penn St. is a powerhouse on both sides of the ball and will destroy one of the worst defenses in the Big Ten. Throw-in the fact that teams know more and more about the Wolverines undermanned spread attack and I can’t see how the Lions don’t win by double digits.
While most think Penn St. is simply a power running attack, I believe they’re more balanced than Aurora Snow in Lollipop Lesbians and don’t make the mistakes in the passing game the way the Hawkeyes did against Michigan. Sr. QB Daryll Clark (last 3 games: 4 TDs, 1 INT, 598 yrds, 67%) has the outside weapons and a massive O-Line to pick apart a Wolverine D that will spend all their energy trying to stop one of the deadliest backs in football (Evan Royster 648 yrds, 5.8 avg).
Especially after the shocking loss to an extremely overrated Hawkeye squad, I think the Lions got the wake-up call they needed to shred the remaining Big Ten Beeatches. Throw-in that the Wolverines are coming off a game where they were facing D2 talent (Delaware St.), and I expect Grandpa’s boys to shock the overmatched and undersized kids from Ann Arbor early in this contest…which means they carry a 17-point lead into halftime and casually dominate the entire 2nd half.
Final Score: JOPA 44 DICK ROD 27
