The No. 14 Penn State Nittanny Lions could find themselves cruising this weekend, when they face Rutgers on the road. With the Scarlet Knights struggling mightily this season, another blowout might occur.

Last weekend, Penn State handled its business against Wisconsin in a well-rounded performance. Miles Sanders led the offense to a successful day on the ground, meanwhile Robert Windsor and Shareef Miller carried the defense.

It's been a nightmare season for Rutgers, as the program has lost nine consecutive games. Unless the Scarlet Knights magically fix their deficiencies on offense, that trend will continue.

With kickoff set for noon, this Big Ten showdown will be an early treat for fans.

Quarterback Trace McSorely is nursing a leg injury, which could limit some of his ability to gain yards on the ground. Either way, Penn State will be heavy favorites in this conference clash.

The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.

Chris Vosters and Shaun O’Hara will be on the call.
