I got a little ahead of myself last week thinking the Gators would roll into Death Valley and upset the Tigers. The pick looked good for 3 quarters, but LSU pulled away in the 4th and made it look like more of a blowout than it actually was. LSU proved that it is in fact one of the best teams in the country and they will be right in the middle of the playoff conversation at season’s end.
Gameday last week was fucking electric at Death Valley though! Coach O is a fucking legend and the fans at LSU absolutely LOVE him!

#16 Michigan @ #7 Penn State
The WhiteOut game is here! Michigan travels to Penn State in a HUGE matchup for both teams. Michigan is trying to stay alive in the B1G race after an embarrassing loss to Wisconsin while Penn State is trying to keep themselves in the CFB Playoff conversation.
I have said it before and I will say it again, James Franklin is the fucking man! This guy is an unbelievable football coach and he knows how to win football games! He is 51-21 in his 5+ seasons at Penn State and he has gotten them back to where they were at before all the bullshit! He has given the program a new identity after years of turmoil. Bill O’Brien got it started and James Franklin has finished bringing pride back to Happy Valley.
This year’s team does not have the big name stars like McSorley or Barkley, but they are undefeated nonetheless. Sean Clifford is having a hell of a season and leading one of the most prolific offenses in the B1G.
On the other side, Michigan’s offense has been a fucking laughingstock the last few weeks. Shea Patterson has regressed in many ways and just has not shown anything this season. They are in the bottom half of the Big 10 in scoring offense and they are facing off against a team that allows less than 9 PPG on the season.
Penn State’s defense is 3rd in the nation in scoring defense and have been phenomenal all year long! They have not given up more than 13 points in any game this year which could be bad news for the Wolverines.
One thing Michigan does have going is their defense. Although not as dominant as PSU, they are holding their own allowing less than 18 PPG. Slowing down this PSU offense on the road is going to be a tall task though. Especially when you consider that the Wolverines under Harbaugh are 0-7 straight up as road dogs. That is not a good look for a guy who was supposed to “save” the program.
Expect to see plenty of khaki signs today at Happy Valley as I am sure the PSU fans will do everything they can to shit on that chode Jim Harbaugh. Nittany Lion fans are fucking wild and I expect Gameday to be electric again today!
As for the game, Michigan is fucked. I really am not even giving them a chance in this game. They do not score near enough points to compete with this PSU team. I think this game is Harbaugh’s death sentence. He will probably finish the season out, but he may be done and this game will have a lot to do with it!
