The big teams and the big matchup begin on the first of January and this is a big one as the LSU Tigers square off against the Nittany Lions of Penn St.These teams had identical seasons as both hoped for god things but just ended up losing to the elite of the conference.  

For Penn St. the big hurdle was Iowa early in the season and then Ohio St sealed their fate and cost them the Big Ten Title. Joe Pa fielded a good team but at times became too predictable and one dimensional. They did not show up in the big games and this bowl is a good fit for them. 

For LSU the schedule did not help them this year. Any team that plays both Florida and Alabama is certainly in for a long year and a couple of losses. To make matters worse the Tigers had a tip to Ole Miss on the schedule and ended up losing that game as well.  

Neither of these teams impressed against the number this year and when looking at the numbers, Penn St has a slight edge on the defense. However this was against the Big Ten and the SEC is much better and the caliber of teams that LSU played will prepare them for this game. Jefferson is poised and the experience this year will help him lead LSU to a bowl victory. The Tigers are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 bowl games as an underdog. The Nittany Lions are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and will come up short in this contest. 

Capital One Bowl Pick: LSU +2.5
