Ohio State is in a battle with Penn State in Happy Valley as both teams look to stay undefeated on the season. The past two winners of this game have gone on to win the Big Ten, though both teams were spurned by the College Football Playoff committee.

Tonight, it was all Penn State early as the Nittany Lions' defense stifled Dwayne Haskins and the Buckeyes offense. Penn State heavily out-gained Ohio State on offense, but the Buckeyes defense played bend-but-don't-break football in the first half.

Ohio State used a late turnover to put seven points on the board and finally enter the game. After 30 minutes of play Penn State leads 13-7.

Can the team hold on? ESPN's FPI gave its prediction for the second half.
