Ryan Day isn’t feeling particularly aggressive as his Ohio State offense struggles against Penn State.

Penn State punted to Ohio State to give the Buckeyes the ball back with 42 seconds left at their own 17-yard line. OSU had all 3 timeouts remaining.

Instead of trying for a quick score, Day stunned many fans with his decision to kneel out the final seconds of the 1st half. Here’s a small sample of the social media reaction:

There were some who came to Day’s defense:

After starting 5-of-5, Ohio State QB Kyle McCord finished the half 11-of-21 passing. Even with elite playmakers, Day didn’t trust his quarterback to get the Buckeyes in position to score more points.

OSU leads 10-6 at the half. The game is airing on FOX.
