While Penn State suffered a loss in their last game and they are 1-2 in Big 10 play Ohio State cannot take them for granted. That is easier said than done since they face Michigan State in the beginning of December, which may be THE game that decides the winner of the conference.

Ohio State has won 4 straight since being upset at home to Virginia Tech and their offense has been on fire. In their 4-game winning streak they have averaged 56 ppg and they rank 4th in the nation overall in ppg. However, while the Penn State offense is a less than dynamic one they do rank 6th in the nation in total defense.

In their last games Ohio State beat Rutgers 56-17 and Penn State lost to Michigan 18=13.

Ohio State is 5-1 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 5-1 and Penn State is 3-3 ATS and they have an Over/Under record of 2-4.

This season Penn State is 2-1 at home and Ohio State is 2-0 on the road.

This will be the first game of the season for Penn State facing a ranked team.

Penn State has lost 2 straight after beginning the season 4-0.

Last season Ohio State embarrassed Penn State winning 63-14.

J.T. Barrett had a big game against Rutgers passing for 261 yards and rushing for 107 yards. He was named Big 10 Offensive Player of the Week and his 2 main WR's in Michael Thomas and Devin Smith are each averaging at least 18 yards per reception. Barrett will be facing a Nittany Lions pass defense that ranks 54th in the nation.

Ezekiel Elliott had rushed for over 135 yards in each of his last 2 games before rushing for 69 in the blowout win over Rutgers. He and Barnett lead an OSU rushing offense that ranks 17th in the nation. They will be tested in this game facing a Penn State run defense that stuffed the run, despite the loss, last week and is the top-ranked unit in the nation.

Penn State has a good defense, but can they put points up on the board? In the loss to Michigan they only had 214 total yards and they really don't have a ground game. The passing offense is their strength, but QB Christian Hackenberg only has 1 TD as opposed to 3 INT in his last 4 games. He may have to do it all since the PSU rushing offense ranks 121st in the nation.

Ohio State ranks 16th in the nation in pass defense and 41st in run defense.
