If the Penn State secondary can keep the pace they have set through the first six games, the Nittany Lions will escape the first of three tough games with a win.

MI is coming off a 27-20 overtime victory at IN last week. The lone loss for Michigan came at home to their rivals - the Spartans of Michigan State. The Nittany Lions got it figured out and went on to win the Big Ten title.

Penn State is coming off back-to-back routs of IN and Northwestern, but faces a daunting three-week run that also includes visits to No. 6 Ohio State and No. 19 Michigan State.
