STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Normally when The Ohio State Buckeyes head to Beaver Stadium to play the Penn State Nittany Lions, the atmosphere is the definition of a rowdy football Saturday, with Penn State fans flooding the seats in a sea of white. While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed that aspect of the game, it's hard to believe it will take away any of the fierce competition between the two teams.
The game will air right here on News 5 Saturday evening starting at 7:30 p.m.

- Listen to the game on WKNR-AM 850 in Cleveland, WAKR-AM 1590 in Akron, WHBC-AM 1480 in Canton or OSU’s TuneIn channel.
The No. 3 Buckeyes will look to continue their win streak over No. 18 Penn State, having won the last three matchups. Penn State's last win against Ohio State came in 2016.
Last week, the Buckeyes demolished the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 52-17, with quarterback Justin Fields leading the way in an impressive outing. Fields completed 20 of his 21 passes for 276 yards and two touchdowns, in addition to running it into the end zone for a touchdown of his own, heightening his Heisman talks.
Penn State fell to the Indiana Hoosiers last week, 36-35, and are looking to bounce back against the Buckeyes.
While Ohio State won in a blowout last week, Saturday's matchup against Penn State could be a little more evenly scored as the two teams tend to play each other well each year. The last four games the two have played have been decided by a total of 16 points, with three games ending with a three-or-less point differential.
