According to oddsmakers at GTBets, Penn State has been given 100/1 odds to win the national title this upcoming season. The Nittany Lions are currently listed with odds of +2500 to win the Big Ten Championship and their over/under total for wins has been set at 7.5.

The Nittany Lions are coming off a 7-6 record in the 2014 season, their first under coach James Franklin. Penn State went 2-6 in the Big Ten, but managed to make it to the Pinstripe Bowl, where it defeated Boston College in OT. During the 2014 season, Penn State learned that its postseason ban had been lifted, which allowed it to make a bowl game. Four of the team’s six losses in 2014 came by 7 points or less.

Penn State had to grind out games, as it didn’t have much when it came to offense. The Nittany Lions were 113th nationally in points (20.6 per game) and 120th in rushing yards (101.9 per game). Despite that, Penn State had one of the best defenses in the country, holding opponents to just 18.6 points per game, which ranked seventh in the country. Christian Hackenberg returns as starting quarterback, but he needs to improve on his decision making. He had 12 touchdowns with 15 interceptions in the 2014 season. He will be aided by PSU having its leading two receivers and leading rusher back from last season as well.

Penn State will start the season with a road game at Temple before hosting Buffalo in its home opener. The Nittany Lions also host San Diego State and Army in non-conference play. When it comes to the Big Ten, Penn State will host Indiana, Rutgers, Maryland, Illinois and Michigan, but have road trips to Northwestern, Michigan State and Ohio State. Penn State could see an increase in wins this year, but with trips to MSU and Ohio State, it is hard to see it competing for the Big Ten title in 2015.
