Ohio State vs. Penn State score update: Kenny Guiton finds the end zone, lead 56-7

With Christian Hackenberg shaken up to start the second half, the Buckeye's defense continued to have their way in the passing game. Facing a third down, Ryan Shazier was able to find his way into the backfield and force a punt.

Braxton Miller and the Buckeye's offense retook the field and right off the bat, Miller connected with Corey Brown for a first down. After that, the Nittany Lions stiffened and a forced a rare Ohio State punt.  Zach Zwinak's fumble gave Ohio State excellent field position and two plays later, Braxton Miller threw a swing pass to Dontre Wilson—Wilson caught it and turned it into a 26 yard touchdown to make the score 49-7.

Christian Hackenberg was replaced by Tyler Ferguson, but the switch was unable to light a spark as the Nittany Lions had yet another three and out. Jordan Hall was back at running back as the Buckeye's offense took the field. After converting a short 3rd and 1, Jordan Hall ripped off a 42 yard run to move Ohio State inside the 20 yard line. Kenny Guiton entered the game for the first time in weeks and, on his first play, dove in for a touchdown.
