Big, Big Ten Assumption, Part 2.

Penn State is a whole lot better than the Indiana loss last week.

IU was the fashionable underdog pick, and the money line play was popular, but there was a whole lot of luck in getting that right. Yeah, the Hoosiers not only covered the 6.5 and won, but took it outright.

Penn State had the number covered in the final 1:42 of regulation and again in the OT, and blew it – let’s just ignore the final play to give IU the outright win.

Completely lost in the fantastic and fun ending was that the Indiana O did NOTHING against the Penn State defense for about 58:50. Up until the desperation late drive to put it into overtime, IU amassed all of 111 yards of total offense.

Ohio State will win in Happy Valley, but let’s make a Big, Big Ten assumption here yet again.

The Penn State defense will rise up and at least keep Ohio State from making this brutal. None of the last four between the two have been decided by more than 11 points.

But that’s an assumption, and a big one considering Ohio State has the talent to 34-10 this. So let’s go with Big, Big Ten Assumption, Part 3 …
