Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Penn State Nittany Lions

Wed, 08 Sep 2010 21:55
The University of Miami Hurricanes and Ohio State Buckeyes may have gotten off easy in Week 1, but they certainly won't in Week 2 when the two top-15 teams square off against each other on Saturday. Ohio State, fresh off a 45-7 victory over Marshall, will continue their quest to prove that they are National Championship contenders after winning the Rose Bowl last January. Look for Miami to ride Jacory Harris once again after he threw for three touchdowns in the team's Week 1 win. Think that will be enough for them to supplant the Buckeyes at the top of the scoreboard come week's end? Don't just sit there, get in the game. Bet on NCAA Football with the Bodog Sportsbook. Perhaps the reigning champion Alabama Crimson Tide are more your style. Though their dominance is well-known, their Week 2 opponent Penn State will cause concern. The Penn State Nittany Lions did nothing in Week 1 to dispel the notion that they are legit top-20 contenders with a victory over Youngstown State, but will that be enough to give them a reasonable shot at upsetting number one-ranked Alabama? In their first match up of the season, the Tide proved why so many experts feel they have a realistic shot of following up last year's championship with another one. On Saturday Alabama head coach Nick Saban led his depleted squad without an injured Mark Ingram and suspended Marcell Dareus to a convincing win over San Jose State. Ingram, listed as day-to-day with a knee injury, will be welcomed back should his health cooperate enough to allow him to do so, giving Alabama that much more of a scoring punch. Will that be all it takes to crush the Penn State Nittany Lions? Bet on Alabama versus Penn State.
