The Nittany Lions face a very difficult opener at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, against a Badgers team that has hopes for a Big Ten title run. Wisconsin is always an extremely difficult team to face because it runs the ball so well, and playing the Badgers in an opener makes the challenge even more difficult.
Penn State, meanwhile, will be breaking in new offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich, so fans will be expecting a lot from the offense right from the get go.
We will have an extensive preview of the opener at Wisconsin next week as we start our look ahead of the entire PSU schedule.
