What you need to know

Penn State: Important pieces on one of college football’s best scoring defenses are out of the picture, but 6th year quarterback Sean Clifford is back, now armed with a major weapon at receiver after Mitchell Tinsley transferred over from WKU’s historic offense, where he surpassed 1,400 yards and scored 14 times a year ago.

Purdue: Another 6th year quarterback steps in for the Boilers as Aidan O’Connell returns from finishing the Big Ten’s second-most productive quarterback last season. He loses a ton of his receiving production, but retains enough to test PSU’s secondary all day to make an early statement as a potential sleeper in the West Division race.
