Penn State @ Michigan 2018

Another epic battle in the Big House?

My beloved Nittany Lions aren’t supposed to win this one, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they do. They can play spoiler against one of the teams they dislike the most. A win in Ann Arbor makes it more likely Penn State finishes the regular season 10-2.
