The obvious headliners are reigning ACC co-champ Maryland, an Ole Miss squad led by Chris Warren and a Virginia Tech team than knocked off the Nittany Lions in Happy Valley last year.

↵

Lehigh, Fairfield and Duquesne are all quietly solid teams that will provide a nice RPI boost, but they're also capable of beating Penn State, so the Nitts will have to keep their heads up in those games.

↵

Everything else is very winnable. Right now, a safe prediction for Penn State coming out of this schedule is 8-3. The Lions are certainly capable of beating anyone on the slate, but they can also lose to anyone. Expect to see a win over one of the big three schools, and maybe a loss to one of the lesser teams.
