Penn State Vs. Ohio State Score: Nittany Lions On Board Early Over Buckeyes

The Penn State Nittany Lions have been in quite the slump with controversy surrounding them the past couple of weeks, but the team seems determined to play their game Saturday against the Ohio State Buckeyes while trying to ignore the off-field distractions. It's working early, too, as the Top-25 ranked team leads the Buckeyes 7-0.

Penn State was able to score on the game's opening drive, using just six plays to go 80 yards -- nearly half of which came when Stephfon Green took a 39-yard carry up the middle for the drive-capping touchdown. Quarterback Matthew McGloin set up the touchdown run by completing both of his passing attempts and forcing a pass interference flag on the game's opening play from scrimmage.

Braxton Miller and the Ohio State offense tried to answer, but three straight Dan Herron rushing attempts followed by a botched snap ended the Buckeyes' opening drive.
