Penn State is set to host Ohio State at Beaver Stadium in State College, Pa. next Saturday night. It should be one of the biggest games of the 2018 college football season.

The Nittany Lions have to get past Illinois tonight, though. And that's proving to be more difficult than imagined.

Penn State is officially on upset alert at halftime.

It's No. 10 Penn State 21, Illinois 17 through two quarters.

Penn State has been a second half team all season, so it won't be surprising if the Nittany Lions pull away with relative ease over the final two quarters. The Illini have played really strong through two quarters, though.

Stay tuned.
