Prediction time: Penn State-Ohio State breakdown

They don’t wish to recall their last trip here to Columbus. For the matter, Penn State players do not want to live on last year’s double-overtime thriller either.
Odds are the Nittany Lions won’t behave like they did in 2013, a 63-14 reduction. Odds are that they probably won’t shut out the Buckeyes from the second half 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 is exactly what I remember.“
That are the frequent denominator there, yes.
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 have needed for the last month. That should imply players such as Saquon Barkley and Angelo Mangiro are back in the lineup together with each the usual faces on protection. Even Adam Breneman got in his first regular repetitions with the offense this week following a week on the scout team to return to actions.
The Buckeyes haven’t necessarily lived up to their No. 1 ranking through six weeks, tied or trailing Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois, Indiana and Maryland in halftime. But it’s difficult to imagine them coming out sleepy for this one, using a crowded house in primetime.
