The Nittany Lions boast a strong 10-2 record, but they somehow accomplished it without beating a team currently ranked in the top 25. Their two losses, to College Football Playoff semifinal teams Michigan and Ohio State, were both by double digits.

Certainly, Penn State has a lot to prove for a team privileged enough to be playing in the “Granddaddy of Them All.”

It is much clearer that Utah, the back-to-back Pac-12 champion, belongs on the pristine green turf under that dreamy Pasadena sky. The Utes beat USC twice and knocked off Oregon State in dominating fashion.

There’s a chance the Utes make quick work of Penn State on Monday.
