Ryan Day is fired up for Saturday’s big-time showdown with Penn State!

The first test will be Saturday in the Horseshoe against James Franklin and the Nittany Lions. Though the Buckeyes are big favorites, Day knows it will be a tough game. He also called on Ohio State fans in the Horseshoe to set a tough environment for the visiting team:

“This place has to be a living hell today. Every time their offense touches the football, the Horshoe has to be louder than it’s ever been,” said Day. “Do not let them communicate, don’t let them change plays, don’t let them get the snap count, and let’s go kick their ass!”

We are about to find out if the Buckeyes can indeed keep their undefeated season rolling. Kickoff is set for 12 pm EST on FOX.
