What’s the best game of the weekend for Week 13?

Funny. Everyone knows it’s Ohio State-Penn State. The Buckeyes-Nittany Lions matchup is much more than just a top 10 battle.

It should determine the winner of the Big Ten East division and the winner will be favored to not only win the division, but the conference as well. At that point, it would only make sense that the team that wins will be poised for a College Football Playoff appearance.

Ahead of the noon ET kickoff on Saturday, the Buckeyes released their weekly status report:

As Dan Hope of Eleven Warriors noted, Jonathon Cooper is listed as a starter at DE, as is WR Austin Mack. Both have ‘OR’ indications next to them, but both are back in the lineup. Hope also wrote that Baron Browning — a linebacker who is not listed — is indeed available to play.

Ohio State is as healthy as it can probably realistically ask for at this point in the season. The game against Penn State should be a good one.
