Penn State's Juwan Johnson Made An Unbelievable One-Handed Catch

Penn State's Juwan Johnson Made An Unbelievable One-Handed Catch

Offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne dialed up the play with less than 90 seconds remaining in regulation. JK Dobbins punctuated the 75-yard drive with a four-yard touchdown to give the Buckeyes a 14-13 lead. I saw the same thing.

"A lot of people may not believe it, but we expected it, especially having a veteran group, that's a big reason we came back", McLaurin said, speaking of himself and fellow seniors Campbell and Dixon. Miles Sanders coughed up the ball after being hit by Ohio State linebacker Tuf Borland, and the Buckeyes' Dre'Mont Jones hopped on the ball at the Penn State 25. But with the game hanging in the balance on fourth-and-5 with 1:20 left, the play called for McSorley to hand it off to Sanders in the backfield. "But they really came to play that play; didn't get the job done". That game should help in a tough environment at Happy Valley.

On a night when its offense struggled to get going and its defense lacked for answers, No. 4 Ohio State overcame a record crowd and a record night from Trace McSorley to rally back from two double-digit deficits to stun No. 9 Penn State, 27-26.

A great team moves the football. And Young went through the A gap, between the center and right guard, from his position on the outside.

After the game James Franklin's long and winding opening statement included an admission that a different play should have been called.

"This one hurts, obviously", the coach said. "That's on me, nobody else". That's on me. We didn't make the right call in the situation. We didn't make the right call, and obviously, it didn't work. We've called something similar like that in other situations and it broke for a big play, but that's on us. "That's what our thought process was, but we weren't able to pick up the twist".

The result meant Watford drop to sixth in the Premier League table, swapping places with the Gunners. "I am very proud of my players.


The Penn State defense didn't even allow the Buckeyes to gain a first down in their next drive. Alumni and fans alike took to Twitter to express their dismay.

"Pretty simple what happened", former defensive tackle Brandon Noble wrote. I know that's a play that's the deciding factor in the game. And Franklin defended his players. It's coach's decision, and I agree with what he saw. And then we just, we weren't able to make the play. McSorley then covered 49 of the required 51 yards to put the Lions on the doorstep, and a 1-yard Sanders rush put Penn State back up two scores with eight minutes to play.

After both sides took timeouts, Penn State ran an inside zone run on fourth-and-five and got stuffed.

"The realty is, we've gone from an average football team, to a good football team, to a great football team, but we're not an elite team yet", said Franklin.

Tonight will be the ninth time Ohio State and Penn State meet as top-10 opponents, with Ohio State coming in as the number four team in the country, and the Nittany Lions ranked ninth.

"It's just one of those, fourth-and-5, that you just wish you could have and we didn't get it", Johnson said.
