COLUMBUS — With everything on the line, Ohio State didn’t play its best game of the season but managed to knock off No. 8-ranked Penn State 28-17 behind the hard-running style of J.K. Dobbin and an aggressive defense that was buoyed by the return of All-American defensive end Chase Young.
Dobbins carried the ball a season-high 36 times — and Justin Fields toted the rock 21 times as well — and the Buckeyes jumped out to a 21-0 lead after the first series of the second half.
Things changed quickly though as Dobbins and Fields each put the ball on the ground in consecutive possessions and allowed the Nittany Lions to get back in the game behind backup quarterback Will Levis, who helped Penn State put up 17 straight points to bring the score to 21-17.
Then Young, in his first game back from a two-game NCAA suspension, took over. The 6-foot-5, 275-pound lineman turned up the heat on Levis and the rest of the Buckeyes defense followed, swallowing up any hopes of a Nittany Lions comeback.
