Before every Ohio State football game, the LGHL Tailgate podcast will get you ready with all of the information that you need for that day’s game. Legendary Columbus sports reporter Lori Schmidt from 610 WTVN will also join us to give her signature insight into the contest.
Today at noon, the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes, will take the field at Ohio Stadium for the final time of the 2019 season as they host the No. 8 Penn State Nittany Lions with a berth in the Big Ten Championship game on the line. With the Nits playing Rutgers next week, this is practically guaranteed to be a playoff game to get to Indianapolis.
Fortunately for OSU, the best football player in the country Chase Young is back after serving a two game suspension from the NCAA for being a good boyfriend. Also back will be his fellow defensive end Jonathon Cooper who has been in and out of the lineup this season. He is listed as the co-starter with true freshman Zach Harrison opposite Young.
