Week 3 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the No. 22 Penn State Nittany Lions and Auburn Tigers. Penn State was hardly tested by Ohio last week, winning 46-10 in a game that was dominated by running back Nicholas Singleton, who turned 10 carries into 179 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Meanwhile, Auburn needed a second-half comeback to get the 24-16 win over San Jose State. The Tigers' rushing attack was the main reason behind their victory as the backfield combined for 210 rushing yards and three TDs on 38 carries.

Penn State vs Auburn Prediction & Pick

This week marks the first Penn State-Auburn meeting since Week 3 of the 2021 season. It was a back-and-forth affair that saw Penn State walk out with the 28-20 victory. While this week's game should be fairly close again, I'm siding with Penn State to win.

Auburn barely beat a lesser opponent in San Jose State last week. The Tigers were favored by a whopping 23.5 points but only managed to win by eight. That's not the type of school that's a threat to a top-25 program and while the came could look to be anyone's to win at times, the Nittany Lions have already proven to be the more trustworthy team this year.

Final Score Prediction: Penn State: 27 | Auburn: 17

Auburn hasn't played well against the spread lately. Not only are the Tigers 1-4 ATS in their last five games against SEC opponents, but they're also just 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall. Considering how Auburn had a tough time dealing with San Jose State, I don't like their odds covering the 3.5-point spread as underdogs.

Give me Penn State covering the spread thanks to a solid defensive display.

Bet: Penn State -3.5 (+100)
