The eyes of the college football world will be on Happy Valley on Saturday as the No. 9 Penn State Nittany Lions (8-1) host the No. 2 Michigan Wolverines (9-0.) A Penn State win would plunge the Big Ten into chaos. It’s something the Nittany Lions can do, as they have the best roster in over a decade. Their close loss against Ohio State a few weeks ago shows that they have the talent to play at that level, though the defeat also raises yet more questions about the ability of head coach James Franklin to win in the biggest games when it matters most.
Immortal Seats has Upper-Level tickets to the game at Beaver Stadium on Saturday, November 12 (this Saturday) for under $200. This is a total steal, given what a win here could mean for Franklin’s program and the season’s trajectory. Lower-level tickets start at just $250, while we have club-level tickets on sale for around $400.
Michigan is still in the middle of its sign-stealing scandal, something that Franklin will hope to take advantage of by having his players at their top level. Michigan has also not played a team close to the caliber of Penn State all season, so the first quarter of this should be fascinating as the Nittany Lions try to get a score or two early to apply scoreboard pressure against a team that might not be ready for their intensity and talent level.
