Ohio State Team Capsule: The Buckeyes did what many thought they would on Saturday, pulling away for a lopsided 52-17 victory over Nebraska. Justin Fields was near-perfect throwing the football and Garrett Wilson delivered a stellar day from the slot. The status/availability of fellow wideout Chris Olave, who took a few nasty hits this past weekend, will be something to watch for in the coming days.

Penn State Team Capsule: The Nittany Lions endured a heartbreaking 36-35 overtime loss at Indiana on a controversial two-point conversion finish by the Hoosiers. They now return home with a nasty taste in their mouth looking to turn around some narrow defeats to OSU. Quarterback Sean Clifford accounted for 357 total yards in the opener.
