(State College) -- The Nittany Lions will be trying to snap the nation’s longest winning streak when they takes on Ohio State tonight in Columbus.
The fourth-ranked Buckeyes have won 19 straight games, but Penn State Coach Bill O’Brien says he’s looking forward to the challenge.
"I love playing teams like this," he says. "Penn State vs. Ohio State. You think about what that means and the history of college football and these two teams playing each other and the tradition of both schools."
The Nittany Lions are coming off their second bye in four weeks. O’Brien says his team used the time to get rested and healthy.
Ohio State leads the Big Ten Conference in scoring offense, averaging 45 points-per-game. Penn State’s offense, led by true freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg, is posting 33 points-per-contest.
The prime time showdown will be broadcast on national TV.
