Pittsburgh vs Penn State Match Preview

Pittsburgh and No. 11 Penn State will meet for the 100th time in the storied rivalry Saturday in State College, Pa. but when and where the 101st matchup takes place remains to be seen. "I'm either going to be in a coffin or retired probably [the next time Penn State and Pitt play]," Panthers coach Pat Narduzzi told reporters at his Monday press conference of a series that has no future scheduled dates.

The rivalry resumed in 2016, when Pitt eked out a 42-39 win, but the Nittany Lions won the next two encounters by a combined 84-20 margin and they roll into the latest matchup on the strength of two blowout victories to start the year. Sophomore Sean Clifford had four touchdown passes and 279 yards through the air - as well as a team-high 51 on the ground - in last weekend's 45-13 win over Buffalo. The Panthers opened with a loss to Virginia before bouncing back with a 20-10 victory over Ohio. Junior Kenny Pickett threw for a career-high 321 yards and a TD against the Bobcats as Pitt snapped a four-game slide dating to last season.

The Pittsburgh Panthers and the Penn State Nittany Lions will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Beaver Stadium.

Last time out for Penn State, they were a 45-13 winner as they battled Bulls at home. Penn State covered in the match as a -31.5-point favorite, while 58 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Pittsburgh was a 20-10 winner at home against Bobcats. They covered the -4-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (30) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.

Pittsburgh vs Penn State (#13) Key Players Betting Report

Pittsburgh: Pickett found senior wide receiver Maurice Ffrench 10 times for 138 yards and a TD last week. Ffrench has 102 more yards through the air than any of his teammates, although junior running back A.J. Davis - who has a team-leading 114 yards on the ground - has made the most of his chances in the passing game with 72 yards on just three grabs. Sophomore defensive lineman Jaylen Twyman recorded three sacks in the win over Ohio.

Penn State (#13): The Nittany Lions trailed 10-7 early in the second half last weekend before senior cornerback John Reid took an interception back for a TD, igniting a 38-point second half. Clifford took it from there, connecting twice for scores with tight end Pat Freiermuth and once with Jahan Dotson in the second half and setting up a rushing score with a 58-yard run. "Cliff is the ultimate competitor," Reid told reporters. "I know that, coming out in the second half, he was going to turn it around. He has really good composure. He's not getting riled up. He knows he can make all of the throws, he knows he can make the plays."
