The Nittany Lions must play a challenging, solid, fundamental football game. These two teams played in 2021, with the Nittany Lions coming away with an upset win. If Penn State wants to stay in the national title picture, this is a game they have to win.

Illinois is coming off a tough road loss at Kansas on Friday. There is no doubt the Orange and Blue are going to come home with a chip on their shoulder to get back at it.

Michigan State they are going through some awful off-the-field drama. They will be without their head coach, Mel Tucker, as they play Saturday afternoon. The Spartans are 2-0 following their Week 2 win over Richmond.
