As the Michigan Wolverines continue to slide down the Big Ten Conference standings, so too does its Vegas odds.

Michigan (2-4,0-2) welcomes Penn State (4-1, 0-1) to Ann Arbor for the Big House's third installment of the Under the Lights (7:00 p.m. ESPN 2) series. According to VegasInisders and Wynn Sports Book, the Wolverines are currently one-and-a-half-point home underdogs against the Nittany Lions. The Wolverines are currently entering play with a three-game losing streak.

Penn State is riding a winning streak of its own, by having beaten Michigan the last four meetings.

After giving up over 400-yards passing to Gary Nova on Saturday, the Michigan defense will have to face a talented sophomore quarterback, Christian Hackenberg. Hackenberg, who threw for over 300-yards the last meeting between the two programs, has a chance to do some damage against a reeling Wolverines secondary.

Hackenberg currently has 1477 passing yards with four touchdowns and six interceptions.
