This game could get ugly, as Penn State has been hanging some huge numbers against some meager competiton. The question is, how much will Penn State score? Let's not forget that Temple held Connecticut to just 6 points prior to OT a couple of weeks ago. And, I believe Joe Pa will call off the dogs this week. There are five former Penn State players on the coaching staff at Temple. This is a good guy that doesn't want to embarrass these guys any more than is necessary. Last year Penn State won this game 31-0 and the year before 47-0. Paterno had his third string QB playing in the second half. There is another reason I believe this game will stay under the total. Look at the scores from the last two years. Temple has not found the scoreboard in two years against this tough Nittany Lion defense and last year they managed a total of two first downs and 90 total yards! It is quite likely they do not find it again this season, as the Penn State defense is even better. Joe Pa shows mercy, and the Nittany defense could be pitching another shutout. Last week Penn State hung 55 on Syracuse. Over the past five years, Paterno's teams have gone UNDER 20 of 27 times after a game in which they scored 42 or more. I like the UNDER.
