LBU Staff Predictions: Penn State at Indiana

Another terrible defense, probably another Penn State win. How do we know this? This is how...


Penn State will probably be without Michael Mauti which scares the hell out of me because this defense is completely different without him. I expect it to be a high scoring game for that reason and I’m just hoping Penn State can score a lot. I’m pretty sure we’ll see the same slow start we always see because it’s a noon game so we’ve got that going for us. As for Indiana, they will get their points but which team shows up? Will we see the team that came within a dropped pass of beating Iowa or will we see the team that got bitchslapped by Wisconsin to the tune of 83 points? I’m confident Penn State can win but I’m still a bit concerned.

Penn State 35 – Indiana 17


Penn State probably isn't as bad as last week's final score suggested. But it's also not as good as the three games before suggested, either. Indiana won't be much of a test for this team, even though the Hoosiers traditionally get up and play well against Penn State. The last two years--both 11-win seasons for PSU--Indiana played the Lions tough, both times in the confines of Beaver Stadium. Penn State, even without Michael Mauti, should be able to slow or stop a very one-dimensional Indiana offense. And the Hoosiers' defense is worse than Michigan's. No matter the quarterback, Penn State should cover the spread (-10) in this one. Too bad even though the game will be played 45 minutes from my place, I won't be there to see it.

Penn State 34 – Indiana 20

Yeah, it was a busy week for the crew. We'll be back to full force for MSU.
