Key stats should make bettors wary of Buckeyes

Key stats should make bettors wary of Buckeyes

There's gonna be big plays and everything. Penn State outgained Ohio State by 200 yards before the break.

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.

After that, all Ohio State had to do was take a knee and let the clock run out. But they don't have much a say based on the technicalities. He set a Penn State single-game record by accounting for 461 yards, including a career-high 175 on the ground as he shredded Ohio State's defense with clutch runs to extend scoring drives. Hill broke John Reid's tackle and sprinted down the sideline for the go-ahead touchdown with 2:03 to go.

A fourth quarter miracle.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Penn State coach James Franklin shouldered the blame for a curious fourth-down call Saturday night that saw running back Miles Sanders stuffed for a 2-yard loss with just over a minute to play, sealing a 27-26 loss to No. 4 Ohio State. He ran 10 more yards to the 1, then Miles Sanders scored from a yard out, and PSU led 26-14 with 8 minutes left after missing the two-point conversion. 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. There's gonna be mistakes, you can't play a flawless game. Then Ohio State called a timeout.

Penn State outgained Ohio State 492-389.

"The reality is that we've gone from being an average football team to a good football team to a great football team and worked really hard to do those things", Franklin said.

No disrespect to the great players across the country, especially Tua Tagovailoa at Alabama or Kyler Murray at Oklahoma, but neither of those studs is as valuable to their teams as Trace McSorley is to Penn State. Haskins completed just 7-of-16 passes for 62 yards after beginning the game completing 76 percent of his passes. However, Ohio State gave up many big plays to the Penn State offense, but when it was time to make an important play, the Buckeye defense delivered. "We're an offensive line driven team and they controlled the game after we got going". Penn State's Juwan Johnson came up with a catch-of-the-year candidate with his one-handed snag in the first half.

But Penn State forced a three-and-out and McSorley then found Hamler again for a 36-yard gain on a 3rd-and-13 from the Ohio State 30 - and a targeting call on Isaiah Pryor tacked on another 15 yards, moving the Nittany Lions into the red zone.

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