Penn St.-Ohio St. Preview

(AP) — – Fourth-ranked Ohio State’s not perfect – except for its record. “We don’t want to lose,” linebacker Ryan Shazier said after a closer-than-expected 34-24 win over Iowa last Saturday. “We know someone might make a mistake but we’ve got his back.” Mistakes were made, but the bottom line is no matter how they play or who they play, the Buckeyes just keep winning under coach Urban Meyer. They have all kinds of streaks going: three tight conference wins in a row, a 7-0 mark this season and a nation-best 19 consecutive victories. At the same time, they haven’t been overpowering in Big Ten play – their three wins are by seven points, 10 (with a last-second touchdown) and 10 – and that’s not enough to convert poll-voting doubters or the computers that analyze teams in the Bowl Championship Series. That’s the biggest reason why the Buckeyes remain No. 4 in The Associated Press media poll and the USA Today coaches poll. The latter factors into the BCS rankings, which determine the two teams who will play in the national championship game. For now, Meyer isn’t worrying about any of that. He knows that even though few have much regard for the Big Ten or Ohio State’s non-conference schedule, it’ll be hard to turn away the Buckeyes at the end of the season if they have a zero in the loss column. “I try to stay away from that,” Meyer said of all the peripheral talk. “I want us to be one step closer to where we want to go. Where we want to go is to beat Penn State.” The Buckeyes (7-0, 3-0) host the Nittany Lions (4-2, 1-1), who were idle last week, on Saturday. After that the Buckeyes have only one remaining home game, playing three of their final four on the road with another bye week thrown in. This week the coaching staff will undoubtedly be cranky about the defensive effort and another plodding start. Iowa led 10-3 after a quarter and 17-10 at the half last Saturday. By that point, the Hawkeyes had outgained the Buckeyes 222-189, had a 17-9 bulge in first downs and controlled the ball 6 minutes longer. Then came halftime. “I’m more of a yeller and screamer,” Meyer said. “(Then I) let the defensive coaches make their adjustments.” After barely slowing the Hawkeyes down in the first half, the defense did make some critical plays afterward even though it was gashed for an 85-yard touchdown from Jake Rudock to Jake Duzey that tied the game at 24 heading into the fourth quarter. Ohio State’s offense suddenly started controlling the line of scrimmage and running at will – Carlos Hyde had 106 of his 143 yards after the break and both of his touchdown runs. At the same time, the defense stiffened. Iowa’s four second-half possessions ended with two punts and Tyvis Powell’s interception in addition to Duzey’s touchdown. The Buckeyes had started extraordinarily fast in each of their four non-conference games, which, granted, were played against teams that were lopsided underdogs. Since then, however, the Buckeyes have taken a while to get going in conference games…

Bentley, Lucas lead Penn St. past Ohio St., 76-66 (The Associated Press)

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (AP) — Alex Bentley scored 20 points, Maggie Lucas added 18, and No. 8 Penn State beat Ohio State 76-66 Friday in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament. The top-seeded Lady Lions (25-4) had their difficulties in this one after earning a first-round bye and their second straight regular-season title with a 14-2 conference record. But they went on a big run early in the second half to break a tie and earn a spot in Saturday’s semifinals against the Michigan-Michigan State winner. Bentley was 8 of 13 from the field. Lucas, the Big Ten player of the year, hit three 3-pointers. Nikki Greene scored 17, and the Lady Lions shook off a slow start to shoot just over 49 percent in the game. Tayler Hill scored 23 for Ohio State (18-13) and became the fifth Buckeyes player to hit the 2,000-point mark. She now has 2,015 in her career, but it was a tough night overall, even though she tried to inject some suspense as the game…

Special prosecutor to probe Penn St. grand jury

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A special prosecutor has been appointed to examine whether secrecy rules were violated in grand jury proceedings that investigated Jerry Sandusky and three former Penn State administrators who are currently facing criminal charges. Lawyer James M. Reeder was given six months to look into the matter, according to a Feb. 8 order from Judge Barry Feudale first reported on Wednesday by The Associated Press. The order relates to the 33rd Statewide Investigating Grand Jury, which issued reports in 2011 and 2012 that led to molestation charges against Sandusky and perjury charges against former Penn State president Graham Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz. Pennsylvania investigative grand juries often work on more than one matter, and it was unclear from the document whether the possible secrecy violations were related to the Penn State cases or other cases before the panel. The order also applies to a Dauphin County grand jury investigation that in January 2008 reported on a casino license investigation. But Feudale has recently been trying to sort out a legal dispute involving whether …

Ohio St.-Penn St. Preview (The Associated Press)

Ohio State wasn’t exactly thrilled with how it played in its latest game, needing to hold on at the end after blowing most of a 24-point lead. It hasn’t had much to complain about for nearly a decade when it’s faced Penn State. The 14th-ranked Buckeyes head to Happy Valley on Saturday looking for their 18th straight win against the Nittany Lions, who are still searching for their first Big Ten victory. Ohio State (14-4, 4-2) had scored 56 points or fewer in three of its last four games heading into Iowa’s visit to Columbus on Tuesday, but it seemed well on its way to an easy win up 24 with less than 13 minutes remaining. But an eight-minute stretch without a field goal made things interesting, and the Buckeyes’ lead was cut to four before they held on to win 72-63. “We have been this way before in terms of searching for an identity,” coach Thad Matta said. “I have been in games like this before, where we have our moments. We are searching for consistence. I’ll take consistency over…

Miller and No. 9 Ohio St beat Penn St 35-23

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Braxton Miller was his usual self, running for 134 yards and accounting for three touchdowns a week after getting knocked out of a game, leading No. 9 Ohio State to a 35-23 victory against Penn State on Saturday. Ryan Shazier returned an interception 17 yards for a score early in the third quarter that gave the Buckeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten) the lead for good, and the Nittany Lions (5-3, 3-1) and coach Bill O’Brien had their five-game winning streak snapped in a matchup of the Big Ten’s bowl-banned perennial powers. Miller missed the fourth quarter against Purdue after a hard tackle sent him to the hospital with a case of whiplash. He declared himself good to go by the midweek. Was he ever. The Heisman campaign can resume. The sophomore quarterback reached 100 yards rushing for the sixth time this season, carrying 25 times, and only avoiding contact when it was convenient. He also passed for 143 yards. Matt McGloin and the Nittany Lions had turned an 0-2 start…

Amid changes, No. 9 Ohio St, Penn St still rolling

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — The Big Ten won’t hand out a championship trophy to the winner of the Ohio State-Penn State game Saturday night, so bragging rights will have to do. The ninth-ranked Buckeyes and surging Nittany Lions just might be the class of the conference at midseason, but neither team can win the league title or play in the postseason because of NCAA sanctions. Saturday’s meeting then, has turned into a virtual midseason bowl game, complete with a national television audience and plenty of hype. About 107,000 rowdy fans are expected to pack Beaver Stadium, which would be the first sellout of the season. Welcome to the ”Ineligi-Bowl.” ”We only get the chance to lay it on the line 12 times, 12 Saturdays. So every game for us is a very, very big game,” Penn State coach Bill O’Brien said. ”And we’re playing probably the best …
