Default Re: The Penn State Thread...

We have hung with them the last few years and this is the best team we have had in a while... I think our best shot to win will be in a low scoring game where our freshman make a few big plays. It will be tough to run and pass protect, but our "D" should stop them too... I hope it is a good game.

Here's a little breadown of the game...Damn, I love Prime Time College Football!

SERIES INFORMATION
This will be the 21st meeting between the schools. The series, which began in 1912 with a 4-0 Penn State winning streak, is deadlocked at 10-all. The Buckeyes have won the last three meetings between the two teams, including a 21-10 verdict last year in Columbus. Penn State, however, has won four of the seven games played in Beaver Stadium. The Buckeyes' last loss to the Nittany Lions was a 29-27 setback in 2001 in University Park, Jim Tressel's first year at the Ohio State helm. OSU was a 21-20 victor in 2003 in University Park.

PSU COMPARING THE TEAMS OSU
5-0 Records 3-1

6-4, 307 Avg. Ht./Wgt. Off Ln 6-5, 305
6-4, 276 Avg. Ht./Wt. Def Ln 6-3, 284

RECAPPING LAST YEAR vs. PSU
The Buckeyes jumped out to a 14-0 lead on a 67-yard punt return by Ted Ginn and a 24-yard interception runback by safety Tyler Everett and went on to record a 21-10 victory in Columbus. Fullback Branden Joe scored his first career touchdown on a 4-yard run to put the Buckeyes ahead 21-7 at the half. Joe's score was set up by a 65-yard kick return by Maurice Hall. A.J. Hawk had 13 tackles and Anthony Schlegel added 11.

The teams seem pretty evenly matched on paper. Should be a good game, but I'd be shocked if OSU let this one get away...

Good article about Poz... I really like this guy, and I hope he stays through his senior year. Two of the nation's best linebackers will be on the same feild Saturday night... I hope Poz has a bigger impact than Hawk.


Quote:
STATE COLLEGE - With his thick neck and shoulders and an intense on-field demeanor, Penn State's Paul Posluszny might scare the dickens out of opposing offenses.

Of late, Posluszny has sported a gash on the bridge of his nose that makes the soft-spoken linebacker and one of the leaders of the No. 16 Nittany Lions' defense look even more imposing.

"I got it in preseason camp. It keeps getting worse and worse," said the 6-foot-2, 234-pound junior. "I don't think I'll ever get rid of it until after the bowl game."

Yes, he said "bowl game."

OMG... what an awesome win. I live in Ohio so this is especially big for me.

The freshman made some big plays, and our defense was great last night. Poz was absolutely everywhere... and the secondary shut down Ginn and Holmes.

Everyone around here was doubting PSU... I was hearing it from everyone. Stuff like "Do you actually think they can play with OSU" and "Do you think OSU is even worried about PSU". I can't wait til Monday to rub it in their faces.


GO PENN STATE!!!

Posluszny had 14 tackles and chased down Smith for a 10-yard loss with about five minutes left to help keep the Buckeyes scoreless in the second half.

"I don't think you can play any better than he [Posluszny] played," Paterno said. "He's like Shane Conlan."

"I thought the defense was absolutely superb," Paterno said.
