Penn State didn’t get the job done. One can argue that it failed against Ohio State. When a program is at the level Penn State is at, it is expected to win the big games.

That being said, Penn State put up a fight. The Nittany Lions trailed 21-0 at one point and got it back to a 21-17 deficit. Ohio State added a late touchdown to make it an 11-point differential.

After the game, Penn State LB Micah Parsons took to Twitter to give a message to Nittany Lions fans:

Penn State closes its regular season with a game at home against Rutgers next week.
