Head coach James Franklin enters his sixth season on the sidelines at the most prominent College Football program in his native state. There is a lot of work to do after the graduation of three years starting quarterback Trace McSorley. That was just the beginning as five underclassmen entered the 2019 NFL draft with many others transferring. Sean Clifford is the favorite to be under center this season but don’t expect offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne to allow him the same freedom as McSorley. Sophomore wideouts KJ Hamler (754) receiving yards led the team last season, he along with Jahon Dotson will be the primary weapons in the passing attack. As usual, Penn State was had a prolific ground game (205.2) ypg in 2019 which ranked twenty-ninth in the FBS. Another sophomore Ricky Slade, who had 45 carries last season, is the most experienced running back. Three starting offensive linemen return including redshirt freshman Rasheed Walker who’ll take over for Ryan Bates to protect Clifford’s blindside in pass protection.
Edge pass rusher extraordinaire Yetur Gross-Matos (8.0) quarterback sacks is the headliner of a unit that led the nation with (3.5) per game last season. Not even the dynamic defensive line of Clemson could match that number which is more than impressive. Coordinator Brent Pry will no doubt bring the heat again in 2019 as getting to opposing quarterbacks is a priority in the modern era. The days of three yards and a cloud of dust seem to be over unless you’re playing Michigan State each week. Linebacker Micah Parsons started just one game but led the team with eighty-three tackles. He’ll team with Jan Johnson and Cam Brown for what should be one of the best groups in the Big Ten. The nations fifteenth ranked pass defense gave up an average of (181.5) yards per game through the air with safety Garrett Taylor along with cornerback John Reid back in the mix. Penn State opens the season with three consecutive non-conference home games with Pittsburgh being the headliner. They also get Purdue along with Michigan of the Big Ten at Beaver Stadium but have road trips to Ohio State and Michigan State. Bovada.Lv list the Ohio State Buckeyes win total at eight games for 2019.
Prediction: Penn State will go 8-4 with luck, but it’ll probably be 7-5.
