'Penn State vs. Michigan State

If Ohio State wins and Penn State wins, the Nittany Lions will win based on their victory over OSU earlier this season.

Christian Chapman completed 15 of 26 passes for 211 yards and two TDs for San Diego State (9-2, 6-1).

Got a question about the Buckeyes? We can not overlook a talented Minnesota offense and team who's hungry.

So the defenses may be a step ahead in Saturday's matchup.

Weber went over 1,000 yards in the game, becoming just the third Ohio State freshman to do so, and scored what proved to be the decisive touchdown in the third quarter.

Under ideal conditions, Harbaugh probably wasn't going to take any risks in a ho-hum 20-10 win over in since John O'Korn was making his first start as Michigan's quarterback in place of the injured Wilton Speight. However, things between Ohio State and the 5-foot-11, 213-pound running back have been quiet in recent months. Penn State has to win and win big whenever it can to impress the committee. And that doesn't include a 62-3 romp over Nebraska, which was a top 10 team when they met. The Spartans are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings and the over is 13-3-1 in the last 17 meetings.

The Michigan State Spartans would love nothing more than to play spoiler after losing eight of their last nine games. Even so, it was not a reassuring performance. In the first minute of the game, they allowed a 64-yard touchdown to LJ Scott on a catch-and-run.

"That's not us and can't be us", he said. "We'll be ready to play".

"This is something that all Buckeye fans count on their calendar - the days till this game", quarterback J.T. Barrett said. Or is there really a "50/50" chance Wilton Speight will play against Ohio State on Saturday? "We understand the responsibility, and we'll be well-coached and prepared to win that game".

But if Akers doesn't schedule an Ohio State visit soon, the running back could be slipping out of Urban Meyer's fingers.

But these aren't the Wolverines of Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke.

"I can't wait to play with the guys I came in with, I can't wait to play for coach (Jim) Harbaugh and I can't wait to go after them", Thomas said.

After the Wisconsin men's cross country team failed to qualify for last year's NCAA championship, ending a streak of 42-straight appearances at the national meet, the Badgers returned to the national championship Saturday and earned an eighth-place showing at the LaVern Gibson Championship Course.

The Penn State Nittany Lions hope to win their 10th game of the season and give themselves a shot to play in the Big Ten Championship Game.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Tyler Davis kicked a career-high four field goals and No. 9 Penn State stayed in the hunt for a berth in the Big Ten Conference title game with a victory over Rutger.

Even if the Buckeyes sit at home on December 3 despite beating the Wolverines, Ohio State's resume should be enough to make the College Football Playoff. Then, Michigan fended off a pesky IN team for a 20-10 victory.

But a loss on Saturday would nearly certainly knock the Buckeyes out of the CFP unless there's a string of chaos-inducing upsets among other contenders.
