The Ohio State Buckeyes seek to boost their chances of making into the college football playoffs as they face the Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday, 8:00 PM, at the Beaver Stadium University Park, PA.

Coach Urban Meyers understands that the only path for the Ohio State to get into the college football playoff is to win all their games, including the Big Ten Championship. Part of winning the Big Ten conference is to beat the Nittany Lions.

The Buckeyes dismantled the Rutgers 56-17 last Saturday through the efficient performance of J.T. Barrett, who completed 19 of 31 passes for 261 yards and three touchdowns, while adding 107 yards and another two score in seven runs.

Barrett slowly has understood the playbook and he has played with ease. As a dual-threat quarterback, Barrett would love to destroy the defense of Penn State.

Ezekiel Elliot has been part of the offense as he added 69 yards in 12 runs while Curtis Samuel had 59 in four attempts. Part of the success of the Buckeyes is the running game and these running backs are expected to push the ball to derail the defense of the Nittany Lions.

Christian Hackenberg completed 21 of 32 passes for 160 yards and one touchdown. However, he was shattered in rushing the football as he gained negative yards.

While the Penn State football struggles in the offense, they can rely on Bill Belton and Akeel Lynch to control the ground. Moreover, Hamilton and Jesse James would be important in breaking the Buckeyes’ defense.
