Ohio State outlasts Penn State in an instant classic: 3 takeaways

Ohio State outlasts Penn State in an instant classic: 3 takeaways

With the playclock at two seconds, McSorley barely got the snap off and Sanders was hit nearly instantly by Ohio State's Chase Young for a two-yard loss.

The Buckeyes answered quickly when Haskins connected with Binjimen Victor for a 47-yard touchdown pass that cut it to 26-21 with 6:42 to go. Miles Sanders coughed up the ball after being hit by Ohio State linebacker Tuf Borland, and the Buckeyes' Dre'Mont Jones hopped on the ball at the Penn State 25.

Penn State got the ball into Ohio State territory on its first play after that touchdown, but defensive end Chase Young made two big plays as the Buckeyes held on.

In a series that has turned on so many special teams plays, there is something to be said for this group not actually making any massive and critical errors, but it was a below average night, and ultimately that missed kicked hurt the cause as much as anything else did on Saturday night. "It's just rallying as a team, as a unit and realize that we have to get the job done". It stopped Penn State in its tracks and got it out of a rhythm.

"I'm upset with myself", Penn State coach James Franklin said. It was Penn State's first third down conversion of the night. There's gonna be mistakes, you can't play a ideal game.

Though the offense couldn't get anything going, Drue Chrisman tilted the game to Ohio State's advantage with a pair of booming punts - a 44-yarder to pin the Nittany Lions to their own 12, and then a 58-yarder to the 2. Ohio State players in a stadium underbelly had the glow of those who escape.

Meghan Markle's pregnancy rumors are back, and fans believe her new hairstyle is the proof they needed. She launched a cookbook, in her first official solo royal act, which was extremely special for her.

Ohio State inexplicably had a delay of game penalty trying for a two-point conversion, and after getting pushed back 5 yards, it could not convert, leaving the score 27-26. He called the 96-yard drive for the winning touchdown "one of the great drives in Ohio State history". He showed no signs of being caught up in the moment and seemed like an upgrade from Big Ten career touchdown leader, J.T. Barrett, who he replaced this year as the starter.

McSorley completed 10-of-19 passes for 198 yards in the first half and carried 10 times for 76 yards. "We didn't make plays when we needed to make plays".

He finished the game 22-of-39 passing for 270 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.

Maybe it was adjustments or exhausted legs or both, but the wheels slowly fell off in the fourth quarter as Penn State's biggest demons, open-field tackling, and a sudden inability to defend the screen, led to two pivotal Ohio State scoring drives.

B-. Penn State's first-half defense was the best it played all season, generating pressure, making swarm-tackles and covering receivers.
