Both teams have underperformed in 2020, especially based on preseason expectations. Michigan and Penn State boast a combined record of 2-8 going into next weekend’s game.
The Wolverines are coming off of a triple overtime thriller against Rutgers. Jim Harbaugh and company made a key change at quarterback, swapping in Cade McNamara in the first half of the game against the Scarlett Knights. Michigan stormed back from a deficit of 17 points and beat Rutgers 48-42. Still, the program only improved to 2-3 after disappointing losses to Michigan State, Indiana and Wisconsin.
Meanwhile, the Nittany Lions dropped another game on Saturday. James Franklin’s squad can’t seem to figure things out as they fell 41-21 to Iowa. With the loss, Penn State became the only team ranked in the preseason AP Top 25 to ever start the season 0-5.
Both teams will get a chance to placate their fan bases next weekend. Although the Nittany Lions won 27-20 in Beaver Stadium last year, the Wolverines lead the all-time series 14-9.
Penn State travels to the Big House to play Michigan at 12 p.m. ET next Saturday. The game will air on ABC.
