  • Ten Valentines For Ohio State Football

After upsetting Ohio State three weeks ago with a 35-foot buzzer beater on the road, the Nittany Lions rode that momentum to a 79-56 win Thursday night at the Bryce Jordan Center.

They will finish the regular season with games on Sunday night at No. 6 Purdue, home on Wednesday night vs. The game will also be televised on Big Ten Network. Despite their only loss coming at the hands of No. 2 Michigan State during that stretch, Penn State knows there is little margin for error if they want to get to the NCAA Tournament. Bates-Diop hit a 3-pointer to pull the Buckeyes to 58-42 but they wouldn't get any closer. Micah Potter was the top rebounder for Ohio State with six.

For Penn State, the victory built on the team's increasingly strong case to make the NCAA tournament.

In Michigan's last two games, Robinson is a sizzling 10-15 from beyond the arc. And they're favored. How do their players respond to that kind of moment? It was the sixth win in seven tries for the Nittany Lions, who are now 19-9 overall and 9-6 in the Big Ten. While it was the annual and popular THON game where proceeds go to the student-run dance marathon that always attracts a large crowd, that Rutgers crowd was the largest for men's basketball since March of 2011 when top-ranked Ohio State came to town.

Virginia Tech's 11 newcomers - made up of nine freshmen and two junior college transfers - ranks in a tie for second with Louisville for the most in the ACC. See if the Buckeyes can stay out of foul trouble - Bates-Diop, Tate and Jackson each had four fouls last time - and set a defensive tone early.

Ohio State has been on a tear lately, and they've lost just one game since Christmas. "I think it was important for those guys to learn on the fly and through in-game experience".

As talented as Penn State is with its starting five all averaging in double-figures though, it doesn't have a deep bench. Might Andre Wesson, who played 16 minutes last time out against Penn State, be a way to combat that with his size and length? That seems low for the Big Ten leader, but a win here and at MI would provide a big boost.

Bill's pick: Ohio State 74, Penn State 71.

Ohio State wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 14 points from turnovers, compared to Penn State's 15. Just kidding. I'm not getting that specific. I'm taking Penn State to cover in a fun game.

Without a doubt last week was huge for the Ohio State basketball team.

Thanks to a road win at Purdue and a home victory over Iowa, Ohio State has climbed into the Top 10 for the first time in four years.

A completely different Penn State team stormed out of the locker room out of the first intermission.
