Penn State has some history with the Buckeyes.
Ohio State lost to the Nittany Lions twice in the 2017-2018 season. If the Bucks had beaten Penn State just once that season, they would have won the Big Ten regular-season title.
Then, in the second round of the conference tournament, the two teams met again. Penn State won, again.
While it is still early, Ohio State could be competing for the Big Ten title once again. The Buckeyes were off to an impressive 8-0 record coming into today with two wins against top-ten teams.
And they weren't about to let the visitors spoil their conference opener.
