Buckeyes Defense Bails Them Out In Win Over Penn State
Despite scoring just 1 offensive touchdown in 6 trips inside the red zone, Ohio State found a way to beat Penn State Saturday night in Columbus 33-24.
OSU’s defense picked up the slack by forcing 3 Nittany Lion turnovers, including a 57 yard “Scoop and Score” fumble return by 310 pound defensive lineman Jarron Cage.
Quarterback C.J. Stroud threw for 305 yards and 1 touchdown, while running back TreVeyon Henderson rushed for 152 yards and 1 score.
Kicker Noah Ruggles was perfect on the night hitting all 4 field goals and his 3 extra points.
With the win, the Buckeyes improved to (7-1) and kept their College Football Playoff hopes alive as they remain tied for first place in the Big Ten East with undefeated Michigan State, who beat Michigan on Saturday.
