Jody Victor : Ohio State Wins 28-6 vs. Penn State

Jody Victor: Ohio State used fourth-quarter interceptions by Malcolm Jenkins and Antonio Smith in the final 2 1/2 minutes to put two exclamation points on what had been a close game as the No. 1-ranked Buckeyes extended their winning streak to 11 straight with a 28-6 victory over No. 24 Penn State Saturday in front of 105,266 fans at Ohio Stadium.

The Buckeyes also got offensive touchdowns from Antonio Pittman and Brian Robiskie (his first).

Looking at the score alone is deceiving. The teams had to overcome a sloppy first half on a rainy day in Columbus. And the first score finally came as the first-half clock expired, when PSU kicker Kevin Kelly got a second chance to kick a field goal after Ohio State was flagged for roughing the kicker on his first attempt from 23 yards which sailed wide left. His second attempt gave the Nittany Lions a 3-0 lead.

All-in-all it was an exciting game with OSU coming back in the second half with their ususal correct adjustments to make the scores.

Ohio State (4-0 overall) travels to No. 14 Iowa next Saturday. The game will kick off at 8 p.m. and will be televised by ABC Sports.

Go Bucks!
