One of the biggest college football matchups fans will watch on Saturday is the Michigan vs. Penn State game live streaming online and on television. While the Michigan Wolverines were once highly-ranked in the top 25 polls, the mighty have fallen after an upset at the hands of the Michigan State Spartans. Meanwhile, this latest Penn State Nittany Lions squad has rolled to a 6-0 record with a 3-0 record in the conference. All of that has Penn State looking like title contenders. Can Michigan hand the No. 2 team their first loss of the season? Here are all the details for today’s matchup including odds, game time, television channels, and how to watch Michigan vs. Penn State live streaming online.
After their recent loss against rival Michigan State, the Wolverines bounced back last weekend against the Indiana Hoosiers. The final score was 27-20 in overtime, as Indiana put up a fight to the finish. Backup quarterback John O’Korn was 10-for-20 with just 58 passing yards while running back Karan Higdon provided the bulk of the offense. Higdon ran for 200 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries. Now, he and O’Korn will try to do their best to challenge a Penn State team at home that has yet to lose a game this season.
The Nittany Lions’ most recent win was yet another relatively easy win as they defeated Northwestern 31-7 on the road. Over their six games so far, Penn State has been outscoring their opponents by about 30 points a game. They currently rank first in the nation in defense, allowing just nine points on average per game.
