Penn State upset perspective-Nittany Lions beat Ohio State

Ohio State, ranked second in the nation heading into the weekend, was upset by Penn State Saturday night.

Ohio State led, 21-17, when it lined up for a 45-yard field-goal try by Tyler Durbin with 4 ¢ minutes remaining.

If there is panic and unrest in the Ohio State camp after Saturday's upset loss to Penn State, nobody was displaying it Monday.

Defensive players also made big special-teams plays. The larger point for now is that if Ohio State wins out, it'll make the playoff.

Alabama is No. 1 again, receiving all but one of the 61 first-place votes from the media panel Sunday.

True. If Ohio State wins all its games, starting Saturday at home against Northwestern and beating No. 2 MI along the way to a Big Ten championship, the Buckeyes are a good bet to reach the College Football Playoff. Louisville 6-1 1,276 7 6. And if you have two kicks blocked, your offensive line might have played a role in that.

Allen almost blocked a first-half field goal, too, but made an adjustment on his positioning at halftime, he said. We're the #2 team in the country, baby.

"We just didn't get our jobs done up front", senior center Pat Elflein said.

Michigan State had to shoulder a fifth straight loss as its 2016 nightmare continued, losing the first four conference games for the first time since 1982.

As every MI football fan can attest to, there is something great about watching the Ohio State Buckeyes lose. And despite being 5-2, they are only 2-2 in the Big Ten, with their losses coming to Iowa and Penn State, and their wins over Rutgers and Maryland.

Several players on defense played a big role in the win over the Buckeyes. Penn State had only scored seven points entering the fourth quarter.

Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley was 8 of 23 for 154 yards and a touchdown. Sophomore Saquon Barkely continues to dominate on the ground, leading the way with 99 yards on 12 carries.

For Ohio State, Samuel rushed for 71 yards on two carries and caught 8 passes for 68 yards. The Aggies fell three spots to No. 9. Regarded as one of the best QBs in the conference prior to the season, C.J. Beathard has disappointed thus far - he's topped 200 passing yards twice through eight games.

"He hits that easily in practice".

"A couple weeks ago those guys came out strong for me and this program, and this doesn't happen tonight without that as well", Franklin said. The teams also set the combined passing yards record with 1,279. But they do have one thing in common, and that is a win over Michigan State at home. Barrett was 28 for 43 for 245 yards and he was sacked six times as the Buckeyes, especially right tackle Isaiah Prince, struggled to protect their quarterback.

What they had more trouble avoiding, though, was bad field position.

DeRuyter is 30-30 at Fresno State, but he went 20-6 his first two seasons.

Buckeye fans can find solace; Meyer's Buckeyes are 2-1 after losses (the Orange Bowl loss to Clemson in 2014 was the final game of the 2013 season).

The crowd in Happy Valley was electric all night, but in the fourth quarter, it was shades of the days when Penn State ruled college football.
