Penn State Nittany Lions vs. Eastern Michigan Eagles Complete Game Preview

Penn State escaped MetLife Stadium last week with a 23-17 win over Syracuse, while Eastern Michigan came from behind in the fourth quarter to beat Howard, 34-24.

The two 1-0 squads will match up this Saturday after not facing each other in 2012. In 2011, when the two met, Penn State was still embedded in a quarterback battle between Rob Bolden and Matt McGloin. The two of them combined for four touchdowns en route to a 34-6 win over the Eagles.

Eastern Michigan is coming off a 2-10 season and would love to upset the Nittany Lions in their home stadium. It would be the biggest win in program history. Penn State will look to this game as a primer before the tough stretch of their schedule. It's imperative that the Nittany Lions don't get caught overlooking this opponent.

Time: Noon EST

Place: Beaver Stadium, State College, Pa.

TV: Big Ten Network

Radio: Penn State Network Affiliates

Spread: Penn State opened as a 27-point favorite, but the line has moved down to 23, meaning early money has been on the Eagles, per VegasInsider.com.
