Preparations are on for Saturday’s critical Big Ten match between Penn State and Minnesota. The game between the 4-2 Golden Gophers and the 5-1 Nittany Lions is anticipated to be competitive. Tanner Morgan and Sean Clifford, two quarterbacks, are coping with ailments. Prior to the game, Pete Thamel recently disclosed both quarterbacks’ conditions to On3.
Both will be decided at game time tonight in State College, according to Thamel. Tanner Morgan, who was injured against Illinois, is reportedly between dubious and doubtful, according to sources. Expect Athan Kaliakmanis to make his debut if he decides not to travel. He is a four-star recruit and the program’s future for Minnesota. His debut is challenging tonight.
Tanner Morgan of Minnesota football is at best questionable for this game. It would be unexpected to see Morgan play on Saturday because teams typically play it safe when it comes to concussions. Then, Thamel offered a more upbeat assessment of Sean Clifford of the Penn State football team.
Sean Clifford will also be decided on game day. He trained this week, so I would anticipate him to make an effort to push through and go. Compared to Morgan, he has a higher chance to play.
If Morgan sat and Clifford played, Penn State would benefit. On the road, Minnesota yet has a chance to defy the odds. Although the Nittany Lions are only down by a field goal, it will be interesting to observe how these injuries affect the odds before kickoff.
On Saturday at 7:30 p.m. EST, Penn State football and Minnesota football will square off.
