Marvin Harrison Jr. sets new career-high with clutch TD vs. Penn State
Marvin Harrison Jr. has been the X factor in Saturday’s game between Penn State and Ohio State. Late in the fourth quarter, Harrison finally found the end zone to give the Buckeyes a 2-score lead.
With a 3rd-and-11 on deck, Ohio State sent Harrison an underneath crossing route against the defense. The defense was mixed up and tripped up with an easy pitch-and-catch for Kyle McCord and Harrison.
Once the ball was in his hands, there was no chance for the defense to stop the receiver. Carnell Tate helped seal the edge down the field as Harrison rolled into the end zone for a 20-6 lead.
