| Top stories | Today Headlines

Penn State and Ohio State seem to be moving in opposite directions.

The Nittany Lions started the season 5-0 with two ranked wins, including one at Camp Randall Stadium over Wisconsin to open the year.

But that once promising start has derailed over the past three weeks, starting with a 23-20 loss to No. 3 Iowa in one game, quarterback Sean Clifford left in the first half with a rib injury. After a week off, James Franklin’s team lost 20-18 in an NCAA record in nine overtime to unranked Illinois at home.

Now the Nittany Lions travel to Columbus, where they haven’t won since 2011, to take on a white-hot Ohio State team.

The Buckeyes started the season 1-1, with a pretty resounding Week 1 against Minnesota, followed by a 35-28 home loss to No. 12 Oregon, but have since won five in a row.

The Buckeyes’ defense has allowed just 44 points in their last four games while quarterback CJ Stroud has proven to be a fitting heir to Justin Fields.

The Buckeyes’ median margin of victory since losing to Oregon is 47 points, thanks in large part to Stroud, receivers Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson and running back Tre’Veyon Henderson.

Ohio State is No. 5 in the country and a win over No. 20 Penn State could put the Buckeyes squarely in the college football playoff picture yet again.

Here’s how to catch that crucial Big Ten game on Saturday.
