In Week 11 of the 2023 college football season, we finally get the chance to see the Michigan Wolverines, ranked No. 3 in the College Football Playoff rankings, face a ranked opponent. The No. 10 Penn State Nittany Lions host Michigan Saturday in what will be one of the most impactful games of the season as it pertains to which teams reach the playoff.
A Penn State win would shake up not just the CFP race, but the Big Ten East as well. If Michigan wins, it will have a 70% chance to reach the CFP and a 56% chance to win the division, according to the Allstate Playoff Predictor. A loss would give the No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes, who have already beaten Penn State, the upper hand in both races.
Here are the best plays, moments and breakdown of this top-10 matchup:
