Penn State is set to take on the mighty Kent State Golden Flashes at noon on ESPN2. The Nittany Lions are looking for a rebound win after a tough loss in Alabama, where the team stumbled with fundamental tackling and rushing ability.
Look for Robert Bolden to come out swinging, trying to regain some poise before the Big Ten schedule opens up in two weeks. Also look for Evan Royster to pick up the pace, so to speak, with his rushing; Royster has been held to smaller numbers than have been expected, and has seen backups Stephfon Green and Silas Redd take increased reps with the team.
The game should be a relatively easy win, although Kent State will try its hardest to pull the upset in Happy Valley.
SBN Pittsburgh prediction: Penn State 47, Kent State 13
