Ohio State didn’t win “The Game.”

But, it did beat Penn State in what was a must-win game. Now, after the 28-17 victory over the Nittany Lions, the Buckeyes have assured itself a B1G East title and a spot in Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship.

After the win, Buckeye coach Ryan Day spoke about the battle his team just won:

If there was one question about Ohio State coming into this game, it was about how the Buckeyes would handle adversity. Well, they were forced into adversity very quickly after leading 21-0. The next 17 points went Penn State’s way and momentum was completely with the Nittany Lions.

Ohio State did respond with a touchdown and its defense shutout Penn state the rest of the way.

So, what’s next?

The Game. And Day talked about that as well after the 11-point win:

Every day, Michigan gets brought up. That’s the game that matters.

And, it’s only one week away.
