College Football Saturday Penn State Nittany Lions vs Indiana Hoosiers Free Pick

Week 11 college football and we will see the Penn State Nittany Lions take on the Indiana Hoosiers at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana. The game has a start time of 12:00 pm (Eastern) and will be televised on the Big 10 Network. Current Vegas odds have the Nittany Lions listed as 6 point favorites, while the total is set at 44.  

Analysis:  Penn State comes in off a tough 1 point home loss to the Maryland Terrapins. The Lions are now 4-4 overall on the year, but they have gone 2-1 on the road so far. Penn State is a team low on depth due to NCAA sanctions, so they may be a team to fade down the stretch. PSU is 7-2 ATS on the road vs a team off BB SU losses and 7-3 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, but are also just 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games on fieldturf. This is a very poor offensive team that comes in ranked 110th in total yards, 42nd in passing, 124th in rushing and 109th in scoring 21.2 ppg. Keeping them afloat is a defense that is one of the best in the nation, ranking 3rd overall, 23rd vs the pass, 1st vs the run and 9th in points allowed (17.8 ppg). 

The Indiana Hoosiers had thoughts of making it to a bowl game this year, especially after winning in Missouri in their 3rd game of the year. Those bowl hopes are now on life support as they have won just 1 of their last 5 games to fall to 3-5 on the year. The Hoosiers are 5-2-1 ATS the last 8 in this series, but they are also 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games in November and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games. The Hoosiers come in ranked 55th in total offense, 118th in passing, 11th in rushing and 78th in scoring (27.6 ppg). Defense is where this team has really struggled this year, ranking 100th in total yards allowed, 113th vs the pass, 73rd vs the run and 107th in points allowed, giving up 34.8 ppg.

Pick: Im gonna go with the Lions here. I have been waiting for this team to run out of gas, because of the sanctions that they have been hit with, but Franklin still has this team playing hard and they should be able to take care of an Indiana squad that just lost their QB and isn’t playing very well overall. I look for Penn State’s defense to be the difference here as they win this one by at least a TD.
