Penn State (7–4) hosts No. 6 Michigan State (10–1) on Saturday in both teams’ final game of the regular season. Michigan State enters off a season-changing win over Ohio State that placed the Spartans in position to potentially grab a spot in the College Football Playoff. They need a win over the Nittany Lions to maximize their chances at making it, and a loss would in all likelihood drop them out of contention. Quarterback Connor Cook is a game-time decision. Christian Hackenberg leads Penn State. He has thrown for 2129 yards, 14 touchdowns and 3 interceptions this season.
