Week 9 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

The Penn State at Ohio State game lived up to the hype. The Buckeyes mounted an impressive comeback to beat the Nittany Lions 39-38. That leaves both teams at 7-1, but gives OSU the huge advantage of being 5-0 in Big Ten play. There is a long way to go, including road trips to Iowa and Michigan, but the Buckeyes are now clearly the favorites to reach the conference championship game from the tough Big Ten East.
