Wade was a freshman the last time the Buckeyes played at State College. He didn’t record any tackles, but he made two pass deflections in a 27-26 victory. Last season vs. the Nittany Lions, Wade made four total tackles and a pass deflection.
Penn State quarterback Sean Clifford will need to keep a close eye on Wade this weekend. He has four interceptions and three forced fumbles in 25 career games. He’s a potential first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Ohio State has not lost to PSU since 2016 in a 24-21 battle that ended with a thrilling comeback for the Nittany Lions. Penn State scored 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.
Ohio State and Penn State will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. ABC will have the broadcast.
