What an absolutely historic defensive performance from the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes as they dispatched the No. 7 Penn State Nittany Lions 20-12 in Ohio Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Silver Bullets played perhaps their best game in half a decade, completely shutting down an offense that had been putting up 44 points per game this season.

Now, there is still a lot to be desired from the offense with drops, bad throws, red zone inefficiencies, running game issues, and poor play-calling still popping up their ugly heads, but thanks to a career-best 11 receptions, Marvin Harrison Jr. helped the OSU offense do enough to pull off their second top-10 victory of the season.

Because of the wins over Notre Dame and PSU, our Matt Tamanini believes that there is no doubt that Ohio State should be the No. 1 team in the country.
