Tips to win

For Penn State: Limit explosive plays on the ground from both star running back Ezekiel Elliott and from quarterbacks Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett. Capitalize on turnovers, especially in the air.

For Ohio State: Hassle the offensive line to limit the production of quarterback Christian Hackenberg. Stop Carl Nassib from being effective in the pass rush.

Nittany Lion to Watch: Nassib is leading the nation in sacks with 10 in six games. He'll face off against one of the nation's best offensive tackles in Ohio State's Taylor Decker.

Buckeye to Watch: Elliott can rack up 100 yards rushing like he's taking a walk in the park, and has big runs of over 70 yards in two games this season, alongside 835 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.
