Penn State Season Odds

The Penn State Nittany Lions had quite a year in 2008. But Joe Paterno and company is looking for more in 2009, including a possible national title berth.

Paterno and the Nittany Lions put together a successful run in ’08, compiling an 11-2 overall record and a 7-1 mark in the Big Ten. PSU capped off the season with a rough, 38-24 loss to USC in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

The Lions get two key contributors back offensively in quarterback Daryll Clark and running back Evan Royster. Clark complied 2,592 yards threw the air, but Royster amassed 1,236 on the ground. Running back Stephon Green also returns to the PSU backfield.

Defensively, linebacker Navorro Bowman, defensive tackle Jared Odrick and safety Drew Astorino all return. Bowman racked up an impressive 106 tackles last season, while Odrick complied 4.5 sacks and Astorino picked off two passes.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have give Penn State 35/1 odds to win the 2010 BCS National Championship. While there’s a lot to like about this team (including Clark and Royster), PSU lost a ton of talent when Derrick Williams, Deon Butler and Jordan Norwood entered the NFL draft last April. The Lions also return only four starters defensively next season.

That said, there only competition in the Big Ten appears to be Ohio State. If PSU can beat the Buckeyes, who they play on November 7, then they could be in the driver’s seat to win a national title. Of course, Iowa, Illinois and Michigan State will offer challenges as well. But again, their schedule is very winnable if a couple of playmakers can emerge on both sides of the ball.
