Ohio State – Penn State: Notes and Thoughts

Ohio State was doomed. After taking the ball with bad field position, they ran a 2nd down play out of the Wildcat formation where running back Jordan Hall took the snap, and went to hand off to senior running back Daniel Herron. The hand off was mishandled, the ball hit the ground, a Penn State defensive linemen fell on the ball, and Penn State suddenly had possession of the ball on the OSU 11 yard line.

“Ohio State is doomed,” I found myself thinking. There was 8:07 left in the third quarter, the offense had struggled, and Penn State led 20-14. One more score, and the Bucks were going to be hard pressed to get themselves back into the game.
