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 don’t wish to dwell on the past year’s double-overtime thriller either.
Odds are the Nittany Lions won’t behave like they did in 2013, a 63-14 loss. Odds are that they likely won’t shut out the Buckeyes in the second half like they did in 2014.
No matter the Lions haven’t been too excited to reminisce about game this week.
„We lost,“ senior captain Jordan Lucas said. „That’s exactly what I remember.“

What chance do the Lions have this time around against the No. 1 team in the surveys, the defending national champs who have never dropped a regular season Big Ten match in four decades under Urban Meyer? Slim, albeit greater than it appeared a week back.
By the sounds of things, the Lions are going to the Horseshoe in better health than they’ve had for the last month. That should mean players like Saquon Barkley and Angelo Mangiro are back in the lineup along with each the usual faces on defense. Even Adam Breneman got in his first regular reps with the crime this week after a week to the scout team to acclimate back to action.
