Penn State 7-1 (4-0) looks to continue their dominance over Illinois and maintain their position as the top dog in the Big 10 Leaders Division. They will go up against against the Illinois Fighting Illini 6-2 (2-2), who are cooling off after a 6-0 start, losing to Ohio State and Purdue in consecutive weeks.
Penn State has been stout on the defensive side of the ball, allowing opponents only 13.1 points per game, but Illinois has been torching defenses with their running game to the tune of 199 yards per game. Expect dual-threat quarterback Nate Scheelhaase to be the X-factor in this one.
