With all of the hype surrounding this weekend’s matchup between Notre Dame and Oklahoma, there is a bit of a shadow being cast over Penn State’s game against Ohio State.
Don’t get me wrong. Both Nittany Lion fans and Ohio State fans alike understand the importance and implications that Saturday’s game will bring.
Some people are going so far as to call this weekend a battle between the two best teams in the Big Ten.
Whether or not this is true is moot due to the fact that neither team is eligible to win the B1G Championship or go to a bowl.
