It's been a while since Penn State played a football game of such magnitude, so forgive Matthew Rice for engaging in a bit of hyperbole as he prepares for the 16th-ranked Nittany Lions' primetime showdown against No. 6 Ohio State. "I don't think Beaver Stadium has ever been as loud as it's going to be this Saturday," the senior defensive end said. "It's an atmosphere that you can't even define. It's going to be real loud."
