With all of the controversy that has surrounded the Penn State Nittany Lions’ football program this season, it is hard for some to stomach the fact that they will be in the national spotlight even one more time before the end of 2011, as they take on the Houston Cougars in the Ticket City Bowl. While the team did fight hard to finish 9-3 and overcome a ton of adversity, some have to feel as though it might have made more sense for them to avoid a bowl game altogether, as they continue to deal with the scandals that have rocked the university from its roots as sports betting underdogs.

College Football Betting Pick: Houston Cougars - 7

Not seeing the legendary Joe Paterno walking the sidelines for one more bowl game will be tough, and yes, he still deserves to be called legendary for all that he has done for that program. The Cougars meanwhile have a lot to prove themselves after finishing with a perfect record in the Conference USA, as quarterback Case Keenum looks to finish a spectacular season by lighting up one of the nation’s top defenses.

It will be interesting to see how Houston responds after missing out on the chance at a BCS bowl game following a loss in the Conference USA Championship. Many felt that the Cougars would make it to one with Keenum leading the top-ranked offense in the nation, but even with his average of 455.6 passing yards per game, it simply wasn’t enough when it counted the most. The highest scoring offense in the country will look for some retribution and the chance to finish on a high note when they reach Dallas, and Keenum will be in the spotlight once again.

If the Nittany Lions are going to have any chance at winning this game, it will come down to the nation’s fifth-ranked pass defense coming down hard on Keenum and the Houston passing attack. Penn State can’t come close to matching what the Cougars do on offense with their attack, and so the defense is going to have to come up big to keep them in it. How important this game is to players on this team, and the effect that the controversy surrounding the university has will be two key issues that contribute to this game.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While the underdogs listed by the sportsbook have a tendency to come up big in bowl games, there is just not enough left in the Penn State players and staff to think that they will be able to upset the nation’s highest-scoring offense. Houston has something to prove coming out of the Conference USA, and will throw everything that they have at the Nittany Lions in order to make a statement.
