All of the above rankings are taken directly from the NCAA.
The Redzone TD% and Redzone TD% Defense are calculated by me and not ranked by the NCAA. Determining who has the advantage in these categories is strictly my arbitrary judgment.
If you look at the numbers from last week’s Stupidest Game Ever, it would seem like PSU won going away. Alas, that’s not the way the scoreboard works, and Penn State hosts OSU with this worthless season almost on the line.
Can Penn State beat Ohio State? Provided the zebras have gotten their vision checked prior to this week’s game, definitely. If this was a full white out crowd, I would’ve put my money on PSU anyway (as it is, the $40 I bet in Vegas in February on the Nittany Lions winning the 2020 CFP title is down the drain).
Sorry, world. At least we have football to watch and cheer for slash yell at, and though a lot of folks are down on the Lions, I’m bullish. It’ll be a close game, with strength (PSU defense) against strength (OSU offense). Just clean up the special teams a bit, ok, coach Lorig?
