Fourth Quarter: Penn State 20, Ohio State 14

Penn State will need some help in order to clinch the Big Ten's Leaders division on Saturday, while Ohio State is in a must-win situation in order to remain in the equation.

The two storied football programs will enter Saturday's game under a dark cloud with seasons that have been marred by separate scandals of varying nature off the field. Both programs have replaced their legendary coaches, each with national championship rings and a healthy dose of career victories, and each hopes to finish the season on a high note despite all of the negativity.

Penn State has had a difficult time winning in Columbus since joining the Big Ten, earning just one win since 1993 (2008). Points should be hard to come by for both teams with Penn State's defense among the best in the nation and Ohio State's defense improving as the season has progressed.

Both schools are looking to bounce back after suffering a loss last week. Penn State lost at home against Nebraska, 17-14, while the Buckeyes came up short in overtime at Purdue in stunning fashion.

We will be here all game long to provide updates and analysis as the two Big Ten rivals, who have played annually since 1993, square off.
