Michgian's high powered offense will likely cause problems for Penn State's defense on Saturday night, even if the Nittany Lions play well. Denard Robinson and Co. are among the best in the Big Ten offensively in nearly every statistical category.
With that in mind, offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski knows the offense needs to play well and keep Michigan's off the field to help the defense.
"Whenever you’re going against a talented offense like Michigan, we as an offense want to help our defense out as best as we can," Wisniewski said.
"Certainly that’s putting up points. It’s also holding onto the ball and trying to keep Michigan and the offense off the ball as often as we can."
Fortunately for Penn State, the Wolverines are near the very bottom against the pass nationally and just about average against the run. If the Lions can hold the ball and make a few key stops, it might be hard for Michigan to keep pace.
