Penn State! Alabama, Georgia should be top two in playoff poll

Penn State! Alabama, Georgia should be top two in playoff poll”

The fifth-year senior looked shaky in the Buckeyes' season opener at in and was inefficient against Oklahoma but has been sensational in the five games since, completing 72 percent of his passes with 18 TD strikes and no interceptions.

"I've never had a kid play flawless, but damn he was close tonight", Meyer said.

The Buckeyes senior, who has a history of taking it to the Nittany Lions, passed for 328 yards and rushed for 95 while throwing the game-winning touchdown pass with 1:48 to play. Barrett needs one more touchdown pass to break the Big Ten record of 90 set by Purdue's Drew Brees.

"I think the H-word is appropriate after today's game", Meyer said. He calmly wandered through the mayhem.

Receiver K.J. Hill said Barrett's calmness keeps the Buckeyes cool, and, yes, he does cut loose sometimes.

Barkley was held to 44 yards on 21 carries, and that included a 36-yard touchdown run in the first half.

That's an interactive win probability graph from Ohio State's 39-38 win against the Nittany Lions on Saturday, via ESPN.

Barkley is usually the main driving force of the Penn State offense, but quarterback Trace McSorley and tight end Mike Gesicki both put forth great performances, respectively. Penn State needed every drop of Barkley's excellence to beat Iowa on the final play.

A loss Saturday would have the biggest consequences for Ohio State, whose hopes of returning to the College Football Playoff would be dashed with a second defeat. Their path to the playoff might still be muddled by that loss to Oklahoma, but right now they are the Big Ten's best shot.

After the two first-quarter scores, the Nittany Lions have outscored opponents 104-0 this season.

And still, Ohio State just would not go away.
