The Big Ten has been a nightmare this year, and there would be nothing worse for this conference as a whole than to see Northwestern lose this game on Saturday. The possibility would be there to not see a single team in the conference ranked in the Top 25, which would be a calamity for a conference that has already lost four games to the MAC and three games to Notre Dame this year. The Wildcats are having some identity issues, as they are doing a lot of flipping around of their running backs and quarterback. Penn State meanwhile, is seeming to get a heck of a lot more cohesive as the season is wearing on, and QB Matthew McGloin is really looking like he is one of the best pure passers that the Big Ten has to offer. That’s not saying a whole heck of a lot on the national scheme, but in this game, it should be good enough to win.
