3. Penn State (5-0)
Last week: 3. Which is better right now: Penn State’s offense or defense? Fortunately for coach James Franklin, this doesn’t qualify as a dilemma. Penn State has held its past two Big Ten foes to a total of seven points while scoring 94 in consecutive wins over Maryland and Purdue. A stiffer test awaits this Saturday, when the Nittany Lions go on the road for a showdown with Iowa.
Next up: at Iowa, 7:30 p.m. Saturday, ABC.
