Penn State takes on the Indiana Hoosiers at 3:30 ET on Saturday, and the Nittany Lions will be happy to be back home after escaping from Kinnick Stadium and the Iowa Hawkeyes last week. (Iowa put up 12 points in the 4th quarter to put the fright into Penn State, which answered with 6 points to win 21-19.) The shaky win nevertheless leaves the Nittany Lions at 4-0 taking on the Hoosiers. It’s always worth considering that Penn State has Saquon Barkley, the leading Heisman candidate and a college football player who’s playing on the wrong day.
Penn State has dominated Indiana throughout their history, owning a career mark of 19-1 against Indiana. But there have been close games of late and the Hoosiers (2-1) can really put points on the board, something Penn State started to let Iowa do last week late in the game. A lot of people think Indiana can cover the spread, which has remained fairly steady with Penn State giving 17.5. The over/under is 62, which gives both defenses perhaps more credit than they deserve. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network (BTN) and Penn State v. Indiana can be streamed at BTNgo.
