Big Ten rivals will collide in a Saturday night primetime matchup, when the Ohio State Buckeyes invade Beaver Stadium to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions. The third-ranked Buckeyes (1-0) have one of the most talented rosters in the country and seem extremely motivated after last year’s College Football Playoff loss to Clemson. On Saturday, Ohio State rolled up 491 yards of total offense during an impressive 52-17 home victory versus Nebraska.

Ohio State QB Justin Fields threw more touchdowns (2) than incomplete passes and finished with 276 yards. Garrett Wilson caught seven passes for 129 yards and two scores.

The Penn State Nittany Lions came into the 2020 campaign with lofty expectations, but those were derailed in their season opening 36-35 road loss against Indiana. With Penn State leading 21-20, RB Devyn Ford scored a 14-yard touchdown with 1:42 remaining instead of falling down and running out the clock. The 18th ranked Nittany Lions allowed the game-tying touchdown and two-point conversion with 22 seconds left.

Penn State outgained Indiana by a 488-211 margin and lost in overtime on a controversial two-point conversion. Sean Clifford threw for 238 yards and rushed for 119 yards on his way to a four-touchdown afternoon.
