The Michigan State Spartans and the Penn State Nittany Lions will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Beaver Stadium.

ABOUT MICHIGAN STATE (3-8, 1-7 Big Ten): Scott ran for a career-high 160 yards on 19 carries and added 76 more on receptions against the Buckeyes last week, and the sophomore has 935 yards and a 5.6 average this season. After rushing for 336 yards and two touchdowns on 73 carries in the first six games, Scott has rushed for 599 yards and four TDs on 95 carries in his last five games. Due to a combination of youth and injuries, Michigan State has had a different starting lineup in every game this season, but the defense held the Buckeyes to season lows in points (17), total offense (310 yards) and passing (86 yards) last week.

ABOUT PENN STATE (9-2, 7-1): First-year offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead has the offense humming, averaging 39.7 points during the Nittany Lions’ seven-game winning streak, as quarterback Trace McSorley (2,600 yards passing, 359 yards rushing, 23 total TDs, five interceptions) is on track to break Penn State’s record for total offense in a season. Barkley continues to lead the Big Ten in rushing yards (1,205), all-purpose yards (1,538) and touchdowns (14), and the sophomore has rushed for 825 yards and a 6.3 average in his last six games. Tight end Mike Gesicki set a program record for receptions in a season by a tight end, hauling in five at Rutgers to bring his season total to 42.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Nittany Lions listed as 12.5-point favorites versus the Spartans, while the game’s total is sitting at 54.5.

Should Ohio State beat Michigan in a noon contest Saturday, No. 8 Penn State will take the field in front of 100,000 fans at Beaver Stadium against Michigan State needing a win to secure the Big Ten East championship and a spot in the conference title game. Furthermore, should the Nittany Lions, currently ranked seventh in the College Football Playoff rankings, win the conference crown, it would keep their chances alive for a spot in the Final Four.

Penn State coach James Franklin acknowledged that he would speak to his team about the unique circumstances coming this weekend, but that his focus is only on Michigan State. The third-year coach knows this game will be won or lost in the trenches, as Michigan State brings a ground attack that has rushed for over 200 yards in four of their last five games, including 207 last week in a 17-16 loss to No. 2 Ohio State. The Lions yielded just 87 yards of offense last week in a 39-0 win at Rutgers – the fewest they have yielded in a Big Ten game and fewest in any game since giving up 74 yards versus Temple in 2006. “You look at us, what we’ve been doing, stopping the run here recently, Purdue 1.8 yards per carry, Iowa 1.2 yards, Indiana 2.7, Rutgers 1.2. When you can make people one-dimensional, that’s going to be important this week. That’s going to help you,” Franklin said of his front seven which was beset by injuries early in the season but is now healthy as it prepares for LJ Scott. ”He was a great player last year. I think they were getting that offensive line to kind of grow and mature early on this season. He’s a big, strong back that can make you miss. Him and Saquon (Penn State’s Barkley) I think, in some ways, have some similarities. It’s going to be a real challenge for us.”

Penn State won its last outing, a 39-0 result against Scarlet Knights on November 19. Penn State covered in that game as a -25-point favorite, while the 39 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Michigan State lost its last outing, a 17-16 result against Buckeyes on November 19. Michigan State covered in that game as a +20-point underdog, while the 33 combined points took the game UNDER the total.
