Prediction time: Penn State-Ohio State breakdown

They don’t wish to remember their last trip here to Columbus. For the matter, Penn State players do not wish to live on the past year’s double-overtime thriller either.
Odds are the Nittany Lions won’t crumble like they did in 2013, a 63-14 loss. Odds are they probably will not shut out the Buckeyes in the second half just like they did in 2014.
No matter the Lions haven’t been overly excited to reminisce about either game this week.
„We lost,“ senior captain Jordan Lucas said. „That’s what I remember.“
That would be the frequent denominator there, yes.
So what chance do the Lions have this time around against the No. 1 team in the polls, the defending national champs who have never lost a regular season Big Ten game in four decades under Urban Meyer? Slim, albeit better than it appeared a week back.
From the sounds of things, the Lions are going into the Horseshoe in better health than they’ve had for the last month. That should imply players such as Saquon Barkley and Angelo Mangiro are back in the lineup along with all the typical faces on defense. Even Adam Breneman obtained in his first regular reps with the offense this week after a week to the scout team to acclimate back to actions.
The Buckeyes haven’t necessarily lived up to their No. 1 position through six months, tied or trailing Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois, Indiana and Maryland at halftime. Nonetheless, it’s hard to imagine them coming out sleepy with this one, with a packed house in primetime.
