#685 Rutgers +7 over Penn State 3:30 PM CT
With wins over Ohio State and Nebraska, Rutgers has made some noise in the Big Ten and at 9-9 overall this season the Knights are a threat to finish strong with a few more upsets along the way. Rutgers has lost five road games in a row but did win at Miami earlier in the season and should play better off a big win than they did in the 18-point loss at Minnesota that followed the win over the Buckeyes.
Penn State is a better team than the 0-8 Big Ten record represents with numerous close losses. A breakout performance could be expected by laying a big number with the Lions carries great risk. Penn State has struggled offensively all season and rates as the least efficient offensive team in the Big Ten. In conference play Penn State has shot 27 percent from 3-point range, 47 percent from 2-point range, and 60 percent from the line.
