It could be a prophecy or it could wind up on the Freezing Cold Takes Twitter account, but in any case, all of College Gameday’s panelists picked Penn State to beat Purdue Thursday night and start 1-0.
The panel of Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollock and Lee Corso all had Penn State winning. Herbstreit made Penn State fans happy this past Saturday when he picked Penn State as his sleeper team for the 2022 season.
“I think Penn State has a (good) team, in some key spots, with the leadership that they’re bringing back, and I think people are maybe underestimating Sean Clifford,” Herbstreit said on last week’s Gameday. “I think Sean Clifford, when he’s healthy, can make plays. So I think Penn State can be a team that has a shot to be a sleeper.”
Penn State comes in as a 3-point favorite in its first game at Ross-Ade Stadium since 2016. Kickoff is at 8.
