The Nits bring their S&P+ #10 team (#21 defense, #21 offense) to face the S&P+ #4 Wolverines (runaway #1 defense for now, #29 offense).

I'll be there with a big group. Sounds like Ann Arbor will be rainy like Seattle for the next half-month.

A crazy thing about a game as highly rated as this?
It probably doesn't really matter to the Big Ten unless OSU loses. That is, even if Michigan loses this, it still controls its destiny to Indianapolis.

Michigan opens as an 11 point favorite.

Don Brown has said he's got this one circled and thinks about last years game every day.

Hopefully Gary is back. That would be a huge boost to an already dominant defense.

NO WAY that Michigan wins this game. We're just not allowed to have nice things.

At home I think that the Wolverines can pull it off. 

Last time in AA it was a 49-10 beat down.

Can’t do it. I dislike the little smug bastard. 
I’ll be rooting for an asteroid to hit the stadium. 
Loved seeing Michigan beat the snot out of his UCF team in 2016 and his Nebraska team this year. Looking forward to many more years of beating the snot out of him.

You should probably root for a meteorite instead. An asteroid would wipe out all of mankind.

As has been discussed in the weather thread, humanity is already well on its way to wiping itself out, sadly.
The big question for this game is Michigan's offense. If they're aggressive, I think they can get to 20 by half time and control the game from there, because Penn Stat's defense isn't anything special, and they struggled against Sparty, which is the best defense they've played, not to mention McSorley getting hurt last weekend (though he still ran for a 50 yard TD after he returned against Iowa, and his mobility is somewhat concerning).

I like the odds of humanity surviving a gradually changing climate over an extinction event.

For sake of conference fairness, I choose to like him. I dislike the division imbalance. Need a Helmet to rise on that side to fix it.

I bet McSorely is fine. He seemed it to finish the game. If he's injured in a way risking future damage and did that anyway, looking unflappable, he's a hero.

Michigan LT Runyan is going to have his hands very full with Nitt DE Gross-Matos.
A decade of Victory over Penn State.
