WATCH: Michigan Football hype video for Penn State

This Saturday the Michigan Wolverines travel to Happy Valley to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions. Michigan has had its share of misfortune over the last couple of weeks, losing starting quarterback Wilton Speight, playing in a monsoon in their loss to Michigan State, and barely scraping by against Indiana. Traveling to Happy Valley will not be an easy trip.

Michigan has fallen in the AP polls over the last two weeks, to #19; while Penn State has steadily climbed to #2. And, as if they didn’t need any more motivation for the game, some PSU students took some dirty shots at the entire state of Michigan this past week. It will take everything Michigan has to offer this Saturday to pull off the upset. Here’s hoping this video helps get everyone behind the Maize and Blue:

The key to the victory Saturday night rest solely on the shoulders of the defense. Being one of the best defenses in the country means they have to stop the best offensive player, Saquon Barkley, in the country. If they can do that, they will have a fighting chance. It’s no easy task though.

But, come Saturday night, Happy Valley will be rocking. The field will be littered with Maize, Blue, and White as two of the tougher teams in the Nation square off for what promises to be a great game. Hopefully, the lights will turn out and Michigan will be walking off the field with the upset win and proving they belong in the conversation as a contending team. Regardless, Go Blue.
