Two of the most historic programs reside in the Big Ten East, with the Michigan Wolverines and the Penn State Nittany Lions. They sit second and seventh all-time in wins, respectively, and have claimed Big Ten titles in the last decade.

They are always among the favorites in college football betting.

Penn State vs. Michigan Series History

Despite being two of college football’s blue bloods, these programs first faced off in 1993. Both programs have had their lulls over the last 10-15 years. Michigan slumped in the Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke eras, while Penn State had to dig their way out of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Even though both teams usually chase Ohio State, it’s one of the bigger games on the Big Ten calendar.

Michigan and Penn State faced off for the 26th time earlier this season, and the Wolverines dealt the Nittany Lions their first loss of the season, 41-17. With the regular season now over, Michigan heads to the Big Ten Championship to face Purdue, while Penn State awaits its bowl fate.

Michigan jumped to No. 2 in the College Football Playoff rankings after obliterating Ohio State at the ‘Shoe on Saturday. They head to Indianapolis as the Big Ten East champion and take on Purdue. This is the first time the Wolverines and Boilermakers will face off since 2017. Michigan is riding a four-game winning streak in the series.

Penn State knocked off Michigan State for the Land Grant Trophy last weekend. With their regular season complete, they have to wait and see if they get a bid to the Cotton Bowl or something else.
