The Buckeyes had one of their hardest games on the entire schedule against the Nittany Lions of Penn State. Definitely the game with the most playoff implications going forward. Whoever won this game was most likely going to represent to the Big Ten East in the Big Ten title game.
The game started shaky, the offense wasn’t doing anything and the defense was letting Penn State drive. It was 13-0 with about 6 minutes left in the 2nd quarter and it already seemed like the game was over. Though after a great drive by Haskins, OSU scored with 2 minutes left in the 2nd quarter. Coming out of halftime it looked like OSU had momentum when we took the lead with a run from J.K Dobbins. After this though it was a different story, again OSU couldn’t move the ball and lost all momentum. Penn State put up two quick touchdowns and OSU was down 26-14.
Once again of course in the crazy flow of this game Ohio State came storming back with a huge 47-yard touchdown catch from Benjamin Victor. The defense stepped up and OSU got the ball right back, again looking the offense we had seen in previous games. After a huge drive by Haskins, he topped off this up and down thriller with a 24-yard touchdown that would end up being the game winner.
This game was definitely an instant classic and one of the games of the year. With the crazy up and down flow of the game, it all came down to who wanted it more in the 4th quarter. It was a great effort by a great rival. Any time OSU plays Penn State, you can always expect a great game.
