Ohio State V. Penn State

Ohio State v. Penn State is always a game worth watching. This year's game means more than most, and may set the tone for the remainder of the season for both teams. Ohio State is favored, but Penn State is looking for an upset.

It would be difficult to say that Ohio State is not the favorite in this particular matchup. With 18 straight wins under their belts and a dominating performance so far this season, it almost seems like a foregone conclusion that the Buckeyes will win. However, recent performance has shown the team to be anything but invincible, and careful planning on the part of Penn State might be Ohio State's undoing.

Penn State's riding high after a victory over Michigan, one that certainly showed a team that is more than realistic in its national title hopes. The Buckeyes may be a huge stumbling block for the Nittany Lions, though, especially as the team represents Penn State's first truly difficult road game of the season. The rivalry between the two teams is sure to create an intense environment, and going into the game as a realistic underdog may not be easy on the visitors. One real question is whether or not the team's bye week will help or hurt their chances against the number four team in the nation.

Though the odds are stacked in the Buckeye's favor, this game is still one to watch. Airing on ABC at 8:00 PM, this is sure to be the game of the week. Whether you are a fan of each team or just of great college football, this is the game to watch.
