A win against Michigan won't change the outcome of the season for the Nittany Lions, but this team is after something almost as important: respect.
Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott will likely be named the Big Ten's top offensive player despite seeing his streak of 100-yard rushing games end at 15.

Penn State stands at 7-4, but it has yet to beat a ranked team or a winning Power 5 team. At times, the Nittany Lions have also appeared to take a step back. James Franklin addressed that, at least partially, on Tuesday: "We're moving in the right direction -- but not as quickly as everyone would like. Including me."
It's fitting that the top-heavy East Division wouldn't be settled until the final weekend.

It looks as if the 10-game sack streak by Penn State DE Carl Nassib will come to an end today. He leads the nation with 15.5 sacks, but he seemed to be ailing from an arm/shoulder injury. He was pulled after the first series and has not returned against No. 12 Michigan.
