This upcoming Saturday’s slate of games includes three huge games against top-15 opponents, with one in Ann Arbor when the Nitnany Lions come to town. No. 5 Michigan takes on No. 14 Penn State in the third installment of “The Revenge Tour.”

Michigan was in a different situation last year when traveling to Happy Valley. The Wolverines are currently on a seven-game win streak and have a chance of winning three in a row against ranked opponents. And now Vegas is showing Michigan some love.

The Wolverines officially opened up as a 10-point favorite over Penn State, according to VegasInsider.

This is not going to be a walk in the park for Michigan, but the defense will not have Saquon Barkley to hold. They still have Trace McSorley, who is having a solid year coming in the game at 6-2 with losses to Michigan State and Ohio State.

This Michigan offense also has some firepower and balance as of late. They are the last team undefeated in the Big Ten and controls their own destiny with four games remaining. Buckle up.
