The Penn State Nittany Lions hit the road to open their season, traveling to Indiana to take on the Hoosiers. Here are six reasons they win Saturday.
Playing in their latest season opener since 1918, Penn State football travels to Bloomington, Indiana to take on the Indiana Hoosiers. Penn State is coming off a season that saw them finish in the top-10, and they will try to navigate what should be a very different college football season during the pandemic.
Of course, Penn State will be without star running back Journey Brown for this one, and he could be out for the entire season. Luckily, there is still enough talent on this Penn State roster to challenge for a Big Ten title, and it all starts inside Memorial Stadium.
Here are six reasons Penn State wins against Indiana.
Penn State has owned this rivalry
There is a lot to be said in terms of rivalries, and when one is as lopsided as this one is, it is hard to not consider that a major advantage. Over the course of these two teams playing each other, the Nittany Lions have dominated, winning all but one of the 23 matchups between the two schools, including the last six.
The only loss Penn State has suffered at the hands of the Hoosiers came back in 2013 on the road, when they were embarrassed by a score of 44-24. It has been all Penn State since, and against Indiana, they will look to win their fifth straight season opener, and their 17th in their last 19 tries.
