Gameday Coverage: No. 7 Penn State vs. No. 3 Ohio State
It’s time for the moment we’ve all been waiting for. After weeks of anticipation, No. 7 Penn State football faces No. 3 Ohio State at noon at Ohio Stadium in Columbus.
The matchup is one of the biggest of James Franklin’s Penn State tenure, as arguably his best team to date has a chance to enter the Big Ten title and College Football Playoff discussion with a win. However, he’s just 1-7 against the Buckeyes and has never beaten them on the road. But will that all change later today? Here’s all you need to know about keeping up with the game.
Penn State is on FOX for the second time this year. The Nittany Lions have Gus Johnson and Joel Klatt on play-by-play and color commentary, respectively, while Jenny Taft will provide coverage from the sidelines.

A high of 58 degrees and a low of 42 degrees is expected in Columbus, according to Accuweather. There’s an 84% chance of rain that should last for around two hours, while the wind speed should be about 15 miles per hour.
Ohio State put together a 44-31 victory at Beaver Stadium last season. The Nittany Lions led in the fourth quarter but collapsed in a come-from-behind Buckeye victory.
The only starter known to be dealing with an injury is JB Nelson, who was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Franklin’s lack of an announcement regarding Nelson’s injury likely indicates it isn’t season-ending. Additionally, Khalil Dinkins, Tyler Johnson, and Carmelo Taylor were all out against UMass.
The Nittany Lions are +5.5-point underdogs against the Buckeyes, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The over-under is set at 45.5 points.
