Rose Bowl Penn State vs Utah Prediction and Odds 2022
Our Rose Bowl prediction is from The Duel's official Penn State vs Utah betting preview.
It's hard to bet against Utah, especially after such an impressive performance to take home the Pac-12 Championship. The Utes absolutely brutalized the Trojans to the tune of 533 total yards, picking up six offensive touchdowns along the way.
Penn State might have some momentum, but three of the four wins over its successful run have come against sub-.500 opponents. That's not exactly inspiring considering how the Nittany Lions are 0-2 against ranked competition this season, losing by double digits both times.
Although Penn State's defense is solid, it won't be a match for a Utah team that's averaged 42.3 points over the last three games. The Utes are also hungry after last year's Rose Bowl loss, only giving them more incentive to get the job done next month.
