Meanwhile, the undefeated Buckeyes and the one-loss Nittany Lions are both fighting to clinch Big Ten Championship Game appearance, as well as a potential spot in the College Football Playoffs.
Ohio State is a 19-point favorite in Saturday’s game.
OSU was favored by the similar margin in 2016 when Penn State had its last win over the Buckeyes. The Nittany Lions outscored the Buckeyes 17-0 in the fourth quarter, granting them a 24-21 victory over Ohio State. Both teams finished 8-1 in the conference, however Penn State went on to play in the Big Ten Championship, where they were victorious over the Wisconsin Badgers.
