NCAA Football: Penn State at Ohio State Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

The scariest game in college football might be the one right after an emotional win.

We saw this firsthand last year when Ohio State came back to beat Wisconsin on the road in overtime, then had to face a fired up Penn State team the next week and lost.

After last week’s thrilling victory over the Nittany Lions, will the Buckeyes fall into a similar trap this week at Iowa?

On this episode of The Hangout in the Holy Land, Colton Denning and Matt Brown discuss whether they think Ohio State is in a letdown spot this week, and how they match up with the Hawkeyes.

The guys also talk about a host of topics in what’s shaping up to be a huge week in college football, including:

  • Tonight’s release of the the first College Football Playoff rankings.
  • Why you shouldn’t be worried if Ohio State isn’t in the top four.
  • Wondering whether the Big 12 has any chance to get a team into the playoff.
  • Why you should keep an eye on Penn State-Michigan State, Minnesota-Michigan, and which other games to watch on Saturday!
