Ohio State rally stuns Penn State

Sure enough, it was as Ohio State took a 14-13 lead into the fourth quarter after overcoming a 13-0 deficit in the second quarter.

McSorley threw a 21-yard pass to Mac Hippenhammer and took off for 19 yards to convert a third-and-11.

Haskins connected 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.

Yet, because Penn State loves to stretch the field horizontally, the Nittany Lions would run sweeps and quick swing passes to the outside directly after many of their big gains.

"They got their athletes in space in the fourth quarter", Franklin said, "and we didn't do a good job in space with them". He also broke the school record for total offense, accounting for 461 of the Lions' 492 yards. McSorley found tight end Pat Freiermuth for a 27-yard completion to the Ohio State 48.

"We obviously didn't make the right call in that situation", Franklin said.

Frustration and disappointment were painted afterward on the faces of Penn State's players, who competed in front of an electric crowd Saturday night that had the stadium shaking 20 minutes before kickoff.

On Ohio State's ensuing possession, linebacker Koa Farmer made a huge stop on fourth-and-1 at the PSU 48, stuffing quarterback Dwayne Haskins at the line of scrimmage for no gain.

"That sideline was not giving up", Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Ohio State outgained Penn State by almost 100 yards to close things out.

And then just like that, everything changed, and for the second year in a row the Buckeyes swiped victory away from the Nittany Lions in another wild game between the Big Ten powerhouses.

After a slow start, Haskins completed 22 of 39 passes for 270 yards and three touchdowns. It especially seemed that way on the following drive when Ohio State penetrated to the Penn State 16, but the Nittany Lions forced a Sean Nuernberger 33-yard field goal, but that score was wiped off the board due to a face mask call and Nuernberger's ensuing 48-yard try was no good. Sanders finished the game with 16 carries for 43 yards.

Tonight will be the ninth time Ohio State and Penn State meet as top-10 opponents, with Ohio State coming in as the number four team in the country, and the Nittany Lions ranked ninth. Penn State's Juwan Johnson came up with a catch-of-the-year candidate with his one-handed snag in the first half.

The Lions held Ohio State, which had been averaging 54.5 points and 599 yards, to 14 points until the fourth quarter. Penn State moved the ball with a ease at times last night and looked the better team for good portions of the game.
