Michigan Wolverines vs Penn State Nittany Lions 10/19/2019
After a great last season, the Michigan Wolverines haven’t exactly appeared as the same team. A change in plays is seen as the reason and such as rendered mixed results. The good news is that their offense is still doing well. They have scored at least 42 points in two of their last three games. However, they face a different team at Penn State. This is a team thriving on great defense which is considered one of the best in the Big Ten. Shea Patterson needs to be sharper against the Wolverines. Receivers like Ronnie Bell, Nico Collins, and Tarik Black need to get more involved if Michigan is to survive the Nittany Lions Saturday.
Players to watch: Shea Patterson QB 92 CMP 161 ATT 1,246 YDS 57.1 CMP% 7.7 AVG 71 LNG 9 TD 3 INT; Zach Charbonnet RB 79 ATT 376 YDS 4.8 AVG 41 LNG; Hassan Haskins RB 26 ATT 189 YDS 7.3 AVG 29 LNG; Ronnie Bell WR 20 REC 361 YDS 18 AVG 71 LNG; Nico Collins WR 13 REC 269 YDS 20.7 AVG 51 LNG
Penn State Nittany Lions
Despite losing two key players, the Lions have managed to stay abreast this 2019. Penn State is averaging 6.6 yards a play and 42 points per contest. Sean Clifford is proving to be a credible replacement to Tracey McSorley. He has completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 1,560 yards and 13 touchdowns to just two picks. His mobility has been a big boost to the Nittany Lions and this may pose problems for the Wolverines. Their defense is a work-in-progress but expected to stand up well against Michigan. If not, Clifford may be tasked to do more on the offensive end.
Players to watch: Sean Clifford QB 102 CMP 159 ATT 1,5607 YDS 64.2 CMP% 9.8 AVG 72 LNG 13 TD 2 INT; Noah Cain RB 57 ATT 310 YDS 5.4 AVG 27 LNG; Journey Brown RB 35 ATT 233 YDS 6.7 AVG 85 LNG; KJ Hamler WR 26 REC 455 YDS 17.5 AVG 58 LNG; Jahan Dotson WR 14 REC 261 YDS 18.6 AVG 72 LNG
