Ohio State rolled over their first opponent, while Penn State suffered a painful defeat. The PSU-OSU game will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and be televised by ABC. In addition, Ohio State's coaching staff honored its players of the game: Haskell Garrett (defense), Justin Fields (offense) and Chris Booker (special teams). Defensively, the Nittany Lions defense is allowing 36.0 points and 211.0 yards, 170.0 passing and 41.0 rushing. All odds are from DraftKings Sportsbook.

Indiana, aided by a questionable facemask call, quickly marched down the field, scored, and successfully converted for two to tie the game. Ohio State hit the gas pedal in the second half as they outscored the Cornhuskers 28-3 and were able to put the backups in to end the game. He had one carry for 3 yards in the season opener against Indiana.

Penn State coach James Franklin declined to give specifics of Cain's injury, but the sophomore left Saturday's overtime loss to IN early and reportedly was seen on the sideline later with a walking boot on his left foot.

The Hoosiers only had one timeout remaining, so a first down would have effectively ended the game. Following a Nebraska punt, Ohio State scored a touchdown five plays later to take a 24-14 lead at halftime.

Penn State, ranked eighth in the country entering their first game of the season on Saturday, fell late to an upstart in program hosting a big game at home. The Penn State defense then forced a turnover-on-downs deep in Indiana's territory, and took over at the 14-yard line with 1:42 remaining.

CFB Predictions: This is the toughest line of the day but I am going to back Ohio State -12.5 on the road.
