It's been an embarrassing couple of weeks for Michigan off the field but all signs (too soon?) are pointing to a third straight Big Ten championship and playoff football. However, with Penn State in need of a win and the sign-stealing controversy being exactly the kind of thing that can bind a team together or knock it off course, could there be an upset on the cards at Happy Valley?

Michigan vs Penn State is live on Fox in the U.S.. Don't worry if you're away — you can watch Michigan vs Penn State from anywhere with a VPN.

Drew Allar exploded into life last week with his best game of the season, throwing for four touchdowns and 240 yards as Penn State destroyed Maryland to the tune of 51-15. It's the sort of display the Nittany Lions' faithful have been waiting for, and with only two more regular-season games to come after the Michigan clash, he may be peaking at the right time.

But putting one of the weakest teams in the East Division to the sword is one thing. James Franklin needs his men to step up to the champions-in-waiting, who have gone undefeated through the first 10 weeks of the campaign. 

Roman Wilson had a monster day in the Wolverines' 41-13 thrashing of Purdue, putting up 143 receiving yards. Ominously, Jim Harbaugh's men achieved that margin of victory without J.J. McCarthy, one of the top-ranked college football centers in the country, notching a single TD. The 335 passing yards he put up sure came in handy though.

Right now DraftKings has Michigan as the favorite with -4.5 points. This is despite the Big Ten banning Jim Harbaugh from the Michigan sideline for three games over the university's involvement in an alleged sign stealing scandal.
