Ohio State vs. Penn State Prediction

Let me start this week by saying I don’t like Penn State. They’re probably my least favorite team in the Big 10 and they have a deserved reputation as having the worst fans in the league. For an example, check out this video from 2007….

Personally, I hope Ohio State wins by 50 but that probably won’t happen. Penn State is coming off a huge win two weeks ago versus Michigan and had a bye last week to rest up and prepare. Ohio State on the other hand looked about as good on offense as they have all season versus Iowa. Unfortunately, the defense continued to be exposed against the pass. I’ve said all year that I don’t understand why the cornerbacks and safeties give a 10+ yard cushion to the opposing wide receivers on every play. It’s maddening to watch.

With that said, I really think Penn State is going to come out throwing the ball and it’s going to be up to Ohio State to stop it. I’m not sure Ohio State is up to the challenge. On the other side, I don’t think PSU’s defense can match up with Ohio State and Braxton Miller. For this, I think Ohio State wins, but not by more than 14. I think both teams will be able to move the ball down the field, but no way Penn State beats OSU on the road at night. I’ll be in attendance to hopefully witness the Buckeye victory!
