Kickoff: Nov. 13, Ohio Stadium; time not yet announced
TV: Not yet announced
Series: It's been close through the years, with the Buckeyes holding a 13-12 lead. Ohio State has won three of the past four meetings, including last year's 24-7 victory at Beaver Stadium.
Who will win and why: Ohio State. Penn State had what many considered to be a very good team last year and got manhandled by the Buckeyes at home. This Ohio State team has national championship hopes and has the Lions at the Horseshoe, so look for an easy win (somewhere around 27-10).
About Ohio State: Head coach Jim Tressel is 94-21 in nine seasons, won the 2002 national title and lost in the BCS championship game in 2006 and '07. He is, by every standard, one of the great coaches in college football. ... Jr. QB Terrelle Pryor is a legitimate Heisman Trophy contender, in large part because he will be the focal point of a team that could go undefeated in the regular season. Pryor still may not be a great QB, but he should show a lot of progress after completing 56.6 percent of his passes for 2,094 yards, 18 TDs and 11 INTs last season. He also ran for 779 yards and seven TDs. ... Sr. RB Brandon Saine ran for 739 yards and four TDs.
Look out for: The Buckeyes have won or shared five consecutive Big Ten titles, and they will make it six in a row this year. Their defense, led by preseason All-America DE Cameron Heyward, likely will dominate PSU's offense.
Penn State's record after this game: 6-4
