Penn State has a much tougher foe this week as the Nittany Lions travel to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to take on the defending national champion Crimson Tide. Some of you may be heading down south for the big game and I have your tailgate and kickoff forecast below...
While the morning tailgating will feel pretty nice, if not a little muggy, the kickoff temperature might be a tad oppressive. Thank goodness Penn State had a whole summer of practice in those temperatures to get used to playing in the heat. Joe Pa faces a tough task in getting to win number 396, but Rob Bolden may be just what we are looking for as our next generation quarterback.
Below is my Top Ten for this week, and yes, Alabama stays at number one. How sweet would it be if the Nittany Lions could pull off the miracle in Bear's backyard? Miami and Ohio State will be a Top Ten match-up this week too and should be a great game. Have a safe trip to those of you heading down to 'Bama and I'll see you next week for a much easier opponent in Kent State!
