Have to go with my Nittany Lions getting 6.5.

USC - 31                                            Penn St - 26

Nittany Lions +6.5              moneybag               under 62

I guess some pundits are claiming the Big 10 was the best conference in college football this year. If they are correct Penn State the conference winners getting points should be the play.

Nittany Lions - Under  peace

Great matchup seems odd USC is a 7 point favorite, but i can never bet on psu ever again, go Trojans

I wonder if the break usc had by not makIng PAC 12 champ will help them or hurt them (maybe the young QB loses his mojo? Momentum?) Big dudes well rested but I have a hunch the break will hurt more than help.  

Penn state has been just as impressive as USC lately.with the game basically at home for USC, they should be favored, but by -3.5 not -7.  If it was back east I'd say penn state should be favored by 1-2.5 pts

 

penn state plus 7.5 buying a half pt.  I've been ice cold.  Hope I got this one right.

I tend to agree but I underlined the part you posted that makes absolutely no sense at all.

Hellava treat we have here for Monday pigskin action. Both teams have QB's that will will be mentioned in early watch lists for the 2017 Heisman Trophy as for both teams RB'S mentioned as well. Im liking the Nittany Lions here.



McSorley has 4 legit targets to throw to and he has no issues going deep. There's only 2 things that scare me though. One is,PNST has a habit of very sloooooooowww starts and their miserable on third downs,converting just 32% of the time.

 
PNST +6.5

Hating PSU makes no sense.  The current players and coaches are not responsible for what happened years ago.  Grow up.

Should be a great game.

USC just too much on both sides of the ball. Should have been them in the Peach Bowl playing Alabama, not Wash. This Darnold kid is the real deal, Ju-Ju Smith-Schuster's playing, will have a good day, and go in the first round next year.....

USC -6.5 easy.....
Got in early, and you can see what happened to the line

Good Luck!

USC -7   Penn State, great story...but with 30 days to prepare, the team with the better overall athletes should prevail...

Should have been them in the Peach Bowl? They just might be let down and dissapointed to be in this lessor bowl while Penn St. is so fired up and happy to be here. Seen this movie lots of times before. Hmmmmm
