Live updates: The Ryan Day Show – Penn State week – 247Sports

  • October 28, 2022

No. 2 Ohio State returned from the off weekend last week and showed no signs of rust when welcoming Iowa to Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes dismantled the Hawkeyes by a 54-10 score, kicking off what will be a more challenging second half of the 2022 season.
That second half continues on Saturday when the Scarlet and Gray head out on the road for only the second time this year. And it will be a more difficult task than the first as Ohio State travels to State College to take on No. 13 Penn State.
While the game is kicking off in the early afternoon, instead of the more traditional primetime slot when these teams meet at Beaver Stadium, and there will be no White Out for this game, the Buckeyes know they will walk into a crazy atmosphere on Saturday. They also take on a Nittany Lion team that has just one loss on the season, that coming to the Scarlet and Gray’s undefeated rivals, Michigan.

This game provides Ohio State its first real chance since Week 1 to earn a signature win this year. While the Buckeyes have impressed by blowing out opponent after opponent through the first seven games of the season, many won’t be truly convinced that the Scarlet and Gray are the best team in the country until they see them do it against what is considered a legitimate opponent.
With the first College Football Playoff rankings set to be released next week, this is a perfect time for Ohio State to showcase what the team can do on the road in a hostile environment against another good team.
On the other side of the ball, James Franklin and his group are looking for another upset win against the Buckeyes. While Penn State has been the Big Ten’s most consistent challenger to the Scarlet and Gray over the last several years, the Nittany Lions have just one win against Ohio State in the last 10 meetings. And while some games have been close in recent years, wins are still wins and losses are still losses.
As Franklin put it following the 2018 game between these two programs, Penn State is not at the elite level of the Buckeyes at this point, but Saturday provides another chance to step in the right direction.
