The potential Big Ten game of the year lost some luster last week.

No. 18 Penn State was upset by Indiana so instead of returning to Happy Valley to host No. 3 Ohio State with an unbeaten record, the Nittany Lions are trying to avoid going 0-2 for the first time since 2013.

No Big Ten team has tested Ohio State in recent years like Penn State, though the Nittany Lions haven't actually beaten the Buckeyes since 2016.

Ohio State-Penn State is the only matchup of ranked teams this weekend, which could be filled with blowouts near the top of the rankings.

If you want to glance ahead, though, the weekend of Nov. 7 could be a monster.

But until then ...
