Penn State-Ohio State: The High Five
It was a tale of two halves for Penn State in their primetime Beaver Stadium clash with Ohio State. Here's a review of the highs and lows from the game.
And let's not forget the Geno Lewis first down that was ruled short...and he ended up out of bounds and yet the clock continues to run. The call was overturned.
Boot It: Punting continues to kill the battle for field position. Enough said.
Runnin' on Empty: A pathetic 16 yards on the ground. Wow. It's actually amazing PSU dominated the second half considering the struggles they had with the ground game.
Hack Job: Hackenberg's awareness and mental clock are frankly shot. He had plenty of time in this game with his pass blocking but made many ill-advised passes (including a near interception on the final drive) and a series of horrible sacks. He's got to nail this down because it's killing drives. We won't even get into the wasted spike-the-ball play. Aye de mi. Aside from this, after the roughing the passer penalty late in the fourth Penn State's huddle and sideline seemed CLUELESS that the clock was running down inside of 30 seconds.
Broken Call: The play-calling was all over the place in this game offensively. Late in the fourth quarter with a critical drive needed the coaches opted to run early and often to killing the drive was baffling. It was probably fitting that the game ended with Bosa getting matched up with Akeel Lynch who was driven into Hackenberg for a sack.
