WATCH: Buckeyes' Chase Young appears to say a quick prayer before making game-winning stop vs. PSU
The game-winning stop Chase Young made against Penn State running back Miles Sanders to seal a 27-26 win over Ohio State won’t get many replays. The play wasn’t all that exciting and appears pretty routine in nature.
But after taking a little closer look at that final play, it does have a really cool element.

In the video below, you’ll notice when Penn State players look toward the sideline, Young (No.2, bottom of the screen) takes a knee and appears to say a quick prayer before the ball is snapped. He then exploded into the Nittany Lions backfield and stuff Sanders immediately.

The pre-snap prayer was noticed by Jack McGuire of Barstool Sports.
Maybe that’s something Young does frequently prior to snaps, but it adds a pretty cool element to that final stop in Happy Valley.
Young had an incredible performance Saturday night, registering six tackles, three for loss and two sacks. He also had two pass break-ups. He was named the B1G Defensive Player of the Week and the Bednarik Award Player of the Week for his efforts.
Ohio State is back in action this week against Indiana. Saturday is the Homecoming game for the Buckeyes.
