The afternoon college football games have been very thrilling, but the main event of this weekend takes place tonight, when Penn State and Ohio State battle for supremacy in the Big Ten.

Although the Buckeyes will face their toughest road test of the season, Dwayne Haskins could have extra motivation for this matchup. He's currently having an amazing season for Ohio State, which features 16 passing touchdowns and just one interception.

Haskins hasn't shown many flaws in his game, yet Penn State believes they'll have an edge over him tonight. Nittanny Lions defensive end Shareef Miller thinks the key to stopping Ohio State's quarterback is by getting shots on him.

Miller heard this advice from former teammates of Haskins, saying "They told me if you hit him a lot of times, he's gonna fold."

Well, Haskins clearly isn't fond of this narrative. Even though Ohio State won't be on the field until later, Haskins is ready to battle. The Heisman candidate gave a simple warning to Penn State, as he said "You poking the wrong lion buddy."

Can Ohio State and Penn State just begin their matchup already?

With kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. ET, all eyes should be on this rivalry game.

Who do you think will come out on top: Dwayne Haskins or Penn State's defense?
