OVERALL: Who would have believed Penn State would not need its a game to beat Ohio State on the road?
OFFENSE: Just never seemed to click. But kudos for taking advantage when the defense provided an opportunity
DEFENSE: Bottom line is this unit held the Buckeyes to six points in their own house and completely shut down the OSU running game. Can't say we saw that coming.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Punting very good. Kickoff coverage not so good. Kevin Kelly's missed 45-yarder in a pressure situation is cause for concern. But nice to see him respond with a clutch 35-yarder.
COACHING: Difficult to blame any off the on-field issues on the coaches. Seemed like more a problem with lack of execution.
INTANGIBLES: Give Penn State credit for making the money plays when the game was on the line.
OTHER GUY: Buckeye defense came to play. But the offense was even more erratic than Penn State's.
OFFICIALS: Some weird spots and a long delay on Pat Devlin's touchdown plunge.
CROWD: The largest crowd in Ohio Stadium history (105,711) was loud but never did take Penn State out of its game.
