Game of the Week
OHIO STATE 44 vs PENN STATE 31
The score doesn’t exactly show what happened here. Penn State was in control for much of the game and it was looking like it may turn into the upset of the week. In the 4th Quarter when Penn State was driving, Ohio State caused a strip sack that put the game out of reach as Ohio State would then score and had all the momentum going their way.
Ohio State (8-0) and Michigan (8-0) are the leaders of the Big 10 East are still undefeated and after both teams have beat Penn State (6-2) in back-to-back weeks. There’s no telling who the better team is, and the division is trending towards a big matchup in the final weekend of the regular season between the two rivals.
