Star of the game

Ohio State receiver K.J. Hill, who caught a wide screen pass from Dwayne Haskins Jr., turned up behind a block by Terry McLaurin and raced 24 yards up the right sideline for the winning touchdown.

Turning point

After Hill's TD, Penn State still had a chance and moved into OSU territory, then faced fourth-and-5 at the 43-yard line with 1:22 to play. But Chase Young crashed the play to nail Miles Sanders for a 2-yard loss.


Based on the way Clemson struggled to beat Syracuse, there’s a chance the Buckeyes will move into the top three in the polls. But most important, they whistled past the doom of the “White Out” to come back from 13 down in the fourth quarter and take command in the Big Ten East.
