The Penn State Nittany Lions will close out their season Saturday when they welcome the Wisconsin Badgers into Beaver Stadium for a Big Ten showdown.
The 7-4 Nittany Lions can still claim an eight-win season despite postseason ineligibility and all of the emotional upheaval that the program has endured. After losing its first two games of the season, Penn State rebounded to reel off five straight victories before being stopped by the Ohio State Buckeyes at the end of October.
After winning two of their last three, Penn State now welcomes the 7-4 Badgers to town.
The Badgers' season will not come to a close Saturday, as Wisconsin will represent the Big Ten Leaders division in the Big Ten Championship Game. If the Badgers drop their regular-season finale to Penn State, Wisconsin would finish third in the Leaders division. With Penn State and Ohio State ineligible for postseason play, the Badgers will still appear in the championship game.
Date and Time: Nov. 24, 3:30 p.m. ET
Location: Beaver Stadium, University Park, Penn.
Odds: Penn State is favored by 2.5 points at home
