There’s been no follow up tweet from Borzello on when the game will be made up.
The Nittany Lions were looking to put an end to their three-game losing streak for this game. They had lost to Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana after upsetting No. 19 Virginia Tech at the beginning of the season. Their next game will now be against No. 10 Michigan on Saturday (assuming that one isn’t postponed too).
For the Buckeyes, they’re coming off a 77-60 loss to No. 16 Minnesota and were looking to get their ninth win of the season. Their next chance will have to come on Saturday against No. 15 Rutgers. Tip-off for that game will be at Noon ET.
