Penn State Nittany Lions

If there is one team that could threaten Ohio State’s quest for college football immortality, Penn State would fit the bill. The match against the Buckeyes could have been a battle of 10-0 collegiate clubs but the Penn State Nittany Lions stumbled to a 26-31 setback against No17 Minnesota two weeks ago. Penn State, however, bounced back last week with a win over Indiana, 34-27. The Sean Clifford-led Nittany Lions are capable of lighting up the scoreboard as evidenced with 59- and 79-point productions in games against Maryland and Idaho, respectively but they need to be precise and efficient to outclass the Buckeyes.

Ohio State Buckeyes

After running away with the opposition with a top-notch offense averaging 51.5 points per game, the Buckeyes will face their most stringent test in the Nittany Lions. A victory against Penn State would move Ohio State a step closer to the Big Ten title game. Led by quarterback Justin Fields, who only recorded one interception in 10 games, their fourth-ranked ground game that norms 287.4 yards per outing and their league-leading defense that allowed only 9.8 points, NCAAF bowl lines pick Ohio State to prevail for the fourth straight time against the Nittany Lions in their stomping grounds, the Ohio Stadium.

Players to watch: J. Fields QB 159 CMP 230 ATT 2164 YDS 69.1 CMP% 9.4 AVG 60 LNG 31 TD 1 INT 18 SACK -107 SYL 191.8 RTG; J.K. Dobbins RB 183 ATT 1289 YDS 7 AVG 68 LNG 13 TD; M.
