My prediction


I just don’t see them getting through the Big Ten unscathed this season. The only games I’m fairly positive Penn State will win in the conference schedule are Iowa, Indiana and Minnesota. Illinois, Michigan, Ohio State, Northwestern and Michigan State all have a shot at the Lions with the Illini being the biggest trap of the season, followed by Northwestern. Penn State can beat any team on the schedule, but doing it week after week is probably too hard. Plus, Beano Cook jinxed us.

What is your prediction? Post it here and I’ll add it to the list.

Don’t forget, Penn State football chat tomorrow at noon!

  1. I'll say 11-2. I have them losing to Northwestern and if they face USC again they could be in trouble again.

  2. Why is Dave Jones throwing raining on the parade, as always?

    I think I told you my prediction on Sunday, but here it is: 11-2. The two losses are at Illinois and at Michigan State. I believe we'll be tied with Ohio State going into the last weekend of the season, and somehow blow it in East Lansing. I still think we make it to a BCS game, and my guess is a victory over Virginia Tech (ACC Champ) in the Orange Bowl.
