This one's gonna be a doozy. I was bitten last year when the Tigers stomped Georgia Tech into the ground, but I don't get the feeling that's going to happen to the Nittany Lions. They've been to big games, they've won big games, and they've had a solid, if uneventful year. Statistically they have the edge, and anybody who's seen the Tigers "offense" knows that if they can't get anything going, it's going to be a long afternoon. They've put up around 25+ points their last few games, but I don't know if that'll be enough to beat Penn State. Of course, if the D helps out and puts some points on the board, it could be interesting.
The Line: LSU +2.5
The Call: Penn State by 9
The Result: Penn State 19-17
Yeah, the mud & field. But at least it makes it a bit more interesting, giving the game a different look/feel. Great effort from both teams, nice rally from the Tigers there in the second half, but JoPa just keeps on chugging.
