Week 14 Predictions: Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Happy Thanksgiving from the For the Glory team! Should be a pretty straight forward weekend for the Nittany Lions. Don’t be surprised if Sean Clifford is held out and Will Levis gets the start. Rutgers is bad.
Brandon Musso (10-1) & (6-5) vs. The Spread
I talked about Penn State’s inability to recover from an emotional loss ad nauseam after their Minnesota loss. Well now we sit here after another Penn State loss. Fortunately, there isn’t a top ranked opponent waiting for them this week.
The Nittany Lions will host Rutgers at Beaver Stadium to close out the regular season.
There’s not much to say about this matchup, Penn State may be coming off a tough loss but Rutgers is going to need more than that if they want to beat Penn State. The talent disparity is large which gives me reason to believe that Penn State will still win big.
Penn State: 45 Rutgers: 10
Kraigen Rasalla (10-1) & (4-7) vs. The Spread
The final regular season game is here and Penn State is on the verge of winning 10 games for the third time in four years. Yet again, Rutgers is one of the worst teams in college football, sitting at 2-9 entering the matchup.
Although James Franklin said Sean Clifford is a game-time decision, Will Levis proved last Saturday at Ohio State that he is more than capable of handling the reigns. I don’t expect the Penn State offense to slow down at all on Saturday.
I think Penn State will win in a blowout and will provide some of their younger players to play more snaps than we have seen all season. I’m excited to see freshmen we have not seen much this year, as well as seniors who are playing in their final game at Beaver Stadium.
Penn State picks up another 10 win season.
Penn State: 55 Rutgers: 10
Cory Lestochi (8-3) & (5-6) vs. The Spread
Rutgers is very bad. I expect a lot of freshman to play in this one. The question is whether or not they cover the spread. I say they do and have a big time day on the ground.
Penn State: 49 Rutgers: 3
