FOS Penn State Pre-Michigan Hot Takes

Three quick hitters for Nittany Lion fans to digest as PSU prepares to face the No. 4 Wolverines in Ann Arbor.

Penn State (2-1) heads to Ann Arbor to take on No. 4 Michigan (3-0) Saturday in the Big Ten opener for both teams.

As of this writing, the Wolverines were 18.5-point favorites. But even though most expect Michigan to cruise, there are still some very interesting storylines coming out of the Nittany Lion program.

Such as…

• What sorts of things have head coach James Franklin and his staff emphasized in practice this week?

• Does PSU have anyone who can help the starting defense (and offense and special teams) prepare to face Wolverines' all-around thread Jabrill Peppers?

• Has the domino effect of injuries at linebacker prompted the staff to raid the scout team for help?

Get the lowdown in our Hot Takes above.
