The Saturday matchup between Ohio State Buckeyes and Penn State Nittany Lions resulted in the Buckeyes utterly defeating the Lions 20-12
The Ohio State defense regulated the first four quarters of the game, while their offense only managed to score enough points to bag a victory in their home stadium in Columbus. Regardless of their victory, the Buckeyes found it difficult to advance with only two touchdowns, as the Lions prevailed with their roaring defense.
Ohio State VS Penn State
Ohio displayed its greatest defensive lineup of the season during the first four quarters of the game, with four sacks, four quarterback hits (QBH), and six pass-breakups. The game ended with only two touchdowns for Buckeyes.
While the Lion’s defense seemed impenetrable, the offense was as chaotic as it could be. The lineup seemed wildly out of sync, with Drew Allar and his receivers constantly appearing to be playing quite different games. The score board for the lions was 0-15 until the third quarter. A touchdown seemed far-fetched, let alone a win. The defense tried and created multiple opportunities to shift the tides in their favor, but the offense failed to make something substantial out of it.
This was the Buckeyes 2nd weekend without their top rusher TreVeyon Henderson. Despite the win, the team suffered a major deal in the rushes. Marvin Harrison Jr. might turn out to be the best receiver in Ohio history. The junior receiver hauled in a career-high 11 receptions for 162 yards and a late contest touchdown to seal the victory for Ohio state.
