If it wasn't for some serious NCAA sanctions, this Penn State vs. Ohio State matchup might have some serious implications behind it (Big Ten championship implications, for one).

This is Penn State vs. Ohio State! There's nothing exhibition about it. Both teams have something to prove, even if there's no postseason implications attached. This is their bowl game, and it's certainly going to play like it.

But what about the Nittany Lions? What do they have going for them as they head into this heated rivalry?
Let's take a look.
