PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE Update: Penn State moves ball up & down field for 10-0 lead

Devier Posey is back in action.

Daniel Herron excited about final home game

COLUMBUS, OHIO — This year’s Penn State-Ohio State has a new twist as both long-time coaches at both school’s, Joe Paterno and Jim Tressel are no longer on the sidelines.

The 24 Ohio State seniors were introduced before the game and received huge ovations with the biggest saved for DeVier Posey, back for his first game after two separate NCAA suspensions, and Dan Herron.

When Penn State came on the field, led by the Nittany Lions and cheerleaders, received a nice ovation from the home crowd.

After the coin toss, won by OSU, who deferred to the 2nd half, everyone from both teams met at midfield and shook hands.

The game did not go OSU’s way on Penn State’s first play from scrimmage, as Buckeyes DB Travis Howard pushed a Penn State receiver out of bounds. A 15-yard penalty and a first down. From there the Nittany Lions went just 5 plays, 80 yards, 2:33 elapsed time to score a touchdown as Stephfon Green from the wildcat, took a hand off and ran 41 yards for a 7-0 lead. Green ran right by Orhian Johnson and Storm Klein up the middle.

At the end of one quarter, OSU trailing 10-0.

PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Nittany Lions offense will have problems with OSU defense


RB Silas Redd

WR Derek Moye

All of us, fans, media, Alumni and former players, talk about Ohio State’s offense being terrible at times.

Well, they have company.

Penn State fans, eventhough their team is 8-2, complains about their offense as well.

Would you believe that OSU and Penn State’s offenses are slightly better than the Big Ten’s second-worst team, Minnesota?

They are! OSU averages 25 points a game and PSU scores only 21. Minnesota is the worst in Big Ten scoring offense at 15.0.

Penn State will start error-prone Matt McGloin at QB. He ranks last in the Big Ten in passing efficiency.

The Nittany Lions do have a couple of playmakers on offense in RB Silas Redd and WR Derek Moye.

Redd is fourth in the BTC with 105 rushing yards a game while Moye is sixth with 74 receiving yards per game.

PSU’s offensive line might have trouble with OSU’s defensive line of John Simon, Johnathan Hankins, Adam Bellamy and Garrett Goebel.

Let’s not forget the 24 Ohio State seniors who will be playing their last game ever at Ohio Stadium.

PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes try to rebound against Nittany Lions


(courtesy of Penn State athletics via wikipedia commons)

The Ohio State Buckeyes are looking to rebound this afternoon at home against the Penn State Nittany Lions.

The Buckeyes lost last week in overtime against the Purdue Boilermakers in West Lafayette, 26-23.

The Bucks could’ve won the game in regulation, but the extra point was blocked.

With that loss, OSU is an unheard of 1-3 on the road this season. During Jim Tressel’s tenure as a coach, they lost only three road games.

Today at 3:30 p.m., the Buckeyes will be hosting Penn State who is 8-2, 5-1 and the #1 team in the Leaders Division. OSU leads the series 13-12 and won 38-14 last year in Columbus.

The Nittany Lions are trying rebound themselves from a loss to Nebraska, 17-14, and the loss of their long-time head coach Joe Paterno.

Penn State, before a couple of weeks ago, was one of the cleanest programs in college football. But then the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse accusations started, and the media-blitz of bad press has followed since. Those accusations on Sandusky have resulted in the president, Paterno, the athletic director and the Business manager who ran the campus police all being ousted.

Penn State has a storied program with 826 all-time wins (5th in nation), 43 Bowl Games (8th in nation), 27 Bowl Wins (3rd in nation), 95 1st Team All-America Selections.

The Nittany Lions are now coached by defensive coordinator Tom Bradley, who is in his 33rd season at his alma mater.

Special teams might play into this game.

Penn State on kickoff returns is led by Chaz Powell and has ran one back for a TD. Punt returner Justin Brown is steady and catches all balls.

The placekicking/punter duties belong to Anthony Fera who averages 42.1 yards a punt and is 12 of 15 on field goals. He is 1 for 4 from 40 yards or more.

Ohio State’s KOR and PR is led by the explosive Jordan Hall.
