Must agree with 'vue'. Got 2 teams going in opposite directions.

A unified and physical Minnesota team playing at home with a lot of momentum. Been a while since there was this much excitement around the Minnesota progam,  im thinking they should have a pretty good homefield advantage despite the early start. 
PSU is bad on the road, their young QB cannot carry a team on the road, and they have not come close to covering a road game this year. 

PSU wont establish the run well enough to win.

Penn is 4-0-1 vs spread when facing Minn. Think Penn is also the better coached team. Minn good at home, but think Penn plays good on the road. Final: Penn 37 Minn 34.

Minnesota has won three in a row against solid competition; two of those wins where on the road.  Now they are back in the comfortable surroundings of their home stadium hosting an undermanned Nittany Lion squad that should have loss last week at home against a BIG 10 bottom feeder and got blown the fxck out the previous week up in Columbus, Ohio yet the Gophers are laying less than a field goal…  I see right through the Wise Men in Vegas in this spot…


With that said, put me down for Penn State plus the chalk for a Nickel please.  Thanks!

Minny rolls in this one.  One of the best plays of the 12 00 games.

Ohio State beat this Penn State team 63-14 and they let off the petal early.  Most of the country still does not respect the Buckeyes.  That said, PSU must really blow if they lost that bad to a team FEW give respect.  Now they go to Minny, they are hot, not a public popular team and they have momentum.  They should beat the piss out of this team.  Minny -14

I'll admit I'm a homer but in the past I'd usually stay away or fade the gophers. This year is different, they haven't played this well in a while. I do feel like the line looks like a trap, but I'll take my chances and ride the Gopher train again this week! Although I believe they play mich st and Wisc to finish the year so

Minnesota tried their best to let the Lions back in that game and Bill O’Brien should be smacked directly in the mouth if he blames this game on his defensive coordinator (I saw him snapping at him several times during the game).  My daddy told me long time ago, “the only thing I like about a freshman is next year he will be a sophomore” which is apropos as Hackenburg stunk up the joint…


At any rate, nice job Minnesota and Under backers!
