Ohio State QB's first road test. "There was a time, now, you looked up and saw those white pom-poms and that whole deal and thought that was over".

McSorley completed 16-of-32 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns and carried 25 times for 175 yards, the most rushing yards by a Penn State quarterback since 1913.

Miles Sanders gets tackled for a loss on fourth down by Chase Young as the Buckeyes take over and hold on for a 27-26 win. Penn State fans rode an elevator somberly. Ohio State has terrible memories of the White Out after Penn State blocked and returned a field goal for a touchdown in 2016, sealing the biggest win in James Franklin's career.

Franklin was rightly bashed on Twitter over the call.


"I'm pretty upset right now because I'm hurting for those guys in that locker room. The work that it's going to take to get to an elite program is going to be just as hard as the ground and the distance that we've already traveled".

"We played pretty well", said linebacker Jan Johnson, the former Gov. Mifflin standout who made five tackles. "We didn't make plays when we needed to make plays".

Frustration and disappointment were painted afterward on the faces of Penn State's players, who competed in front of an electric crowd Saturday night that had the stadium shaking 20 minutes before kickoff. Haskins hit K.J.

"One of the great drives in Ohio State history", Meyer called it.

Penn State opened the season with a bit of a scare at home against Appalachian State.


Three timeouts later, on the Ohio State 43-yard line, the Nittany Lions stuck with that same original playcall - which resulted in McSorley handing the ball off to Miles Sanders on a run that went nowhere and puzzled the college football world.

"If there's anything I learned from past year is when you get the chance, you've got to be able to take advantage of it", Chrisman said. There is still a long way to go to navigate the rest of the Big Ten gauntlet but all this game did is determine who has the inside track to the four-team playoff. And no tiebreaker against the Buckeyes in the East Division.

Penn State punched it in from one yard out to take a 26-14 lead with eight minutes left, it seemed like the annual tradition of blowing big games would finally come to an end. Conjuring up comparisons to Odell Beckham's famous one-handed grab against Dallas in 2014, the 6-foot-4 Johnson reached high as he was falling back and made a spectacular right-handed grab for 31 yards down the sideline.

In the second quarter, Garrett Taylor picked off Dwayne Haskins and returned it deep into Ohio State territory.
