James Franklin had asked for an intimidating en- vironment, and he got it, as the White Out crowd helped keep the fourth-ranked Buckeyes on their heels for most of the game. But Dwayne Haskins and company settled down just long enough, and Ohio State rallied for a 27-26 victory over Penn State on Saturday at Beaver Stadium. It was the fourth time in the past five meetings between the two teams that the outcome was de- cided by a touchdown or less. It was also Ohio State's sixth win the past seven games in the series, M A T T   H E R B | M A T T @ B L U E W H I T E O N L I N E . c O M McSorley had a great night for the Nittany Lions, throw- ing for 286 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for a career-high 175 yards.
