Another week of college football action is here and a few huge games are on the Saturday slate.

Perhaps the biggest game of the weekend takes place in Happy Valley as the Penn State Nittany Lions host the Michigan Wolverines in a Whiteout Game.

Before the action kicks off, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum revealed his pick for the game. Finebaum, who is known as an SEC pundit, likes the Nittany Lions to walk out victorious.

Here's what he had to say about the game, via Saturday Tradition:

"The White Out is the best scene in college football. I know because a Buckeye fan told me that last year. Michigan is going to fight hard, but they are going to go down, and the Jim Harbaugh debacle tour continues. Penn State wins a HUGE one tonight."

The Nittany Lions enter tonight's game as a 9-point favorite at home. However, the last time these two programs met, it didn't work out too well for Penn State.

The last two contests between these two teams have been no contest. Penn State took down Michigan 42-13 in 2017 and then Michigan returned the favor with a 42-7 win.

Tonight's game figures to be a hard-fought defensive slugfest.
