Ohio State’s defense showed up in a big way against Penn State once again.

The entire Buckeyes’ defense was named the Player of the Week on that side of the ball after the 20-12 win. The unit was a force in Columbus producing 4 sacks, a 1-16 third-down conversion rate, and kept the game close.

J.T. Tuimoloau didn’t have a monster game against the Penn State offense like he did last year. Tommy Eichenberg led the team in tackles with 8 and had 0.5 tackles for loss. Tuimoloau, Sonny Styles, Kenyatta Jackson, and Caden Curry all contributed to the sack department.

Jim Knowles’ defense has allowed the third-fewest points per game in the B1G at 10 during the 8-0 start to the season. Despite facing a talented Penn State offense and a top-10 opponent, the Buckeye defense once again flexed its muscle Saturday in The Shoe.

The Offensive Player of the Game for the Buckeyes was none other than Marvin Harrison Jr. Harrison set the record for the most games with at least 160 receiving yards. He finished the game with 162 yards receiving and 1 score.
