Washington vs Penn State Betting Preview

The Washington Huskies (10-2, 7-2 Pac-12) quarterback Jake Browning regressed this year and had over 20 fewer touchdown passes than last season.He does have a top NFL prospect to throw to in receiver Dante Pettis (721 receiving yards, seven TDs). Penn State (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten) quarterback Trace McSorley led the Big Ten in passing (3,228 yards) and added 431 yards and 11 TDs. The problem with McSorley is he will throw the interceptions and those turnovers can really cost the Lions in close games against top talent.

Washington vs Penn State Betting Predictions

The Lions have the best running back & quarterback combo in college football. Both of these teams thought they were going to the playoffs and this is one of the better non-playoff games on the slate. I am not a fan of the Washington line play and I Penn State will have an advantage on the offensive and defensive lines. Look for the Lions to pull away in the second half in a lower scoring game.
