Previewing this massive Big Ten matchup between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 8 Penn State.
In one of the most important college football games of the weekend No. 2 Ohio State will play host to No. 8 Penn State. This is not only an interesting game with important college football implications, but there will also be a ton of 2020 NFL draft talent on the field in this one.
Most notably, we will see the return of Ohio State defensive end Chase Young in this game. Young is the clear top prospect in the 2020 NFL draft class but was forced to miss the last two games because of an unwarranted suspension.
Young is having a massive 2019 season and should be able to wreak havoc on the Penn State offense throughout this game. Penn State simply does not have anybody who can block Young, but I am not sure that anybody in the nation does either. Young is going to make life difficult for quarterback Sean Clifford throughout this game.
Heisman hopeful Justin Fields leads the way for the Ohio State offense and should be able to do some serious damage against a less than stellar Penn State secondary. That being said, the strong Penn State defensive line may be able to put pressure on the young signal-caller. Yetur Gross-Matos leads a strong group of defensive linemen that can consistently put pressure on the passer. It is going to be interesting to see how Fields handles that kind of pressure.
