Ohio State outlasts Penn State in an instant classic: 3 takeaways

Ohio State at Penn State stream, keys, and White Out predictions

"We didn't make plays when we needed to make plays".

"That sideline was not giving up", Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said.

This hit is far from as violent as it seems, but according to the rulebook any hit to the head can be targeting, thus taking the decision out of the hands of referee.

A screen to J.K. Dobbins got 35 and took Ohio State out of the hole. But they don't have much a say based on the technicalities. Miles Sanders is the leading rusher with 495 yards and five touchdowns while quarterback Trace McSorley has run for 235 yards and six touchdowns. Haskins connected with K.J. Hill Jr.in the right flat, and with blockers in front, the receiver scampered all the way to the end zone for a go-ahead TD with 2:03 left. That made the fourth quarter, particularly the tackling meltdown, so inexplicable.

Ohio State took a big step toward winning the Big Ten East Division and maybe more with a 27-26 win over Penn State on Saturday night, something that looked improbable if not impossible when the Nittany Lions took a 26-14 lead with eight minutes left in the game.

Sanders had done very little all night, finishing with 43 yards on 16 carries. Haskins connect with Binjimen Victor, who weaved and slipped through tacklers for a 47-yard touchdown catch and run that cut it to 26-21 with 6:42 left.

Reportedly, Cosby's family is intending to appeal his conviction on three counts of aggravated sexual assault. The judge says Cosby could still drug people to override their lack of consent to sexual activity.

Ohio State ran out the clock, leaving the sellout crowd stunned in disbelief.

Penn State controlled the first half and outgained Ohio State 293-93, but a costly turnover swung the momentum in the Buckeyes' favor. He threw one pass over 10 yards in the first half, missed several more and was hit multiple times. Then Ohio State called a timeout. Penn State immediately lost 13 yards on a swing pass trying to set up a trick play. McSorley found tight end Pat Freiermuth for a 27-yard completion to the Ohio State 48. A stunning, jaw-dropping sequence of events that left Penn State reeling in the realm of what could - and probably should - have been.

He finished the game 22-of-39 passing for 270 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.

Those watching Ohio State and Penn State were treated to what might be the catch of the year. They have managed to play quite well despite the loss of defensive end Nick Bosa, who is out for at least another month with an abdominal injury. Sophomore Dwayne Haskins has put up some big numbers in the Buckeyes' first four games, completing 75.7 percent of his passes for 1,194 yards and 16 touchdowns.

"Our defense played great for three quarters", Franklin said. Both offenses took some time to get rolling, in a low-scoring first quarter, but the Nittany Lions got on the board first with a field goal that was set up by one of the best catches of the year.
