Alabama at Penn State:  I think this game is the biggest non-conference game for the B1G in 2011.  Last year in Tuscaloosa, Penn State hung tough with Alabama for three quarters, and but for some untimely turnovers, played a winnable game.  Their defense was good, and freshman Robert Bolden moved the ball well, but threw back-breaking interceptions deep in Alabama territory three times, killing any chance the Nittany Lions had for an upset.  I think this game will be a lot better, as Penn State's defense will still be good, Bolden will be better (JoePa really isn't going to start Matt McGloin, is he?) and PSU has a real shot to get a victory in front of over 100,000 of their closest friends.

This is from the genius at Off Tackle Empire.

I just wanted to save it so I could read it again after the game :-)
