Ohio State is officially in the danger zone against Penn State tonight, as the Buckeyes are now trailing the Nittany Lions by double-digits with less than 10 minutes to go at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa.

The Buckeyes' fan base is obviously not happy and they're especially upset about the team's most-recent offensive possession.

Ohio State was stuffed on a 4th and 1 attempt inside the 50-yard line. The Buckeyes' ran a zone-read option with Dwayne Haskins in shotgun. He faked a handoff to J.K. Dobbins and got stuffed at the line of scrimmage.

Urban Meyer basically never has his quarterback get under center in situations like this (or any situations throughout a game).

All of Buckeye Nation is wondering why Haskins, a 6-foot-3 quarterback with great size, couldn't just attempt a quarterback sneak from under center.

Ohio State has almost never had its quarterbacks line up under center under Urban Meyer. That wasn't changing tonight.

The Buckeyes now trail the Nittany Lions, 26-14, with just under 7 minutes to play. The game is on ABC.
