1978 Penn State at Ohio State (10 Minutes or Less)

Via LBU:

"In the end, however, none of what Ohio State had planned to do would matter. Penn State came out ready to shut down the Buckeyes. By the time the final whistle sounded that day, the Nittany Lions defense would force eight Buckeye turnovers, including four interceptions. It would be a launching pad for Penn State’s historic rise to its first-ever No. 1 ranking. For Ohio State, it would be the second time in 14 years the Nittany Lions shut out the Buckeyes on their home turf."

This was a BIG win for Penn State. It wasn't just that the Nittany Lions beat a top-10 Ohio State team in the Horseshoe. It was that they shut out the Buckeyes, who were actually favored by 5-6 over the visitors. In Lou Prato's Penn State Football Encyclopedia, it even references Ohio State beat writers calling for the Buckeyes to blow out the Nittany Lions.
