This Saturday, two of the best teams in the Big 10 will match up at Penn State. The Penn State Nittany Lions and the Ohio State Buckeyes will square off at Beaver Stadium in Penn State. They both bring several talented players to the mix and it should be a great showdown between conference powers.

Both teams hope to contend for the Big 10 conference championship and both teams are still alive. As far as Free College Football Picks go however, they’ll also have to hope that Iowa falters down the stretch.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are led by Terrelle Pryor. With his running ability, many have compared him to his idol Mike Vick. When he was in high school, he was recruited by Penn State as well as Ohio State. He almost went with Penn State but decided to go with Jim Tressell and Ohio State. Therefore, there should be an added element of dislike on the part of the Penn State fans when he comes out on Saturday.

He is a great player and the Penn State fans will definitely let him have it. The Buckeyes are coming off of one of their most dominant wins ever last week. They held New Mexico State to just 62 yards of total offense. They will undoubtedly have a tougher challenge on their hands this weekend.

The Penn State Nittany Lions are led by 82 year old Joe Paterno. His team has been looking forward to this game and they should be ready to play. They are led on offense by quarterback Daryll Clark and running back Evan Royster. With that combination, they can be hard to stop through the air or on the ground. If they show up to play, the Ohio State defense could have a long day ahead of them.
