No. 5 Ohio State hasn't been bested since falling to No. 7 Oregon earlier this year, but the Buckeyes could be in for a test this weekend. On Saturday, they'll host a No. 20 Penn State team that dropped to 5-2 after losing to Illinois in a nine-overtime thriller last week. The Nittany Lions, however, already have some quality wins and they've been tough to blow out, so Ohio State will have its work cut out to cover this three-score spread.

Why Penn State can cover

Few teams have been as good as Penn State at keeping games close this year. The Nittany Lions have two losses on their record, but their average margin of defeat is 2.5 points. That's impressive considering that Penn State's first defeat was in a road game against No. 9 Iowa. The visitors fell short by three points. Penn State's state's defense had a lot to do with that, and its run-stopping prowess could prevent Saturday's game from becoming a rout.

Buckeyes running back TreVeyon Henderson has run through opposing defenses all year, but the Nittany Lions have been exceptional against the run. They've allowed just five rushing touchdowns this season. Only nine FBS teams have allowed fewer. Limiting half of Ohio State's dynamic offense could help the visitors stay within the spread as significant underdogs.

Why Ohio State can cover

Ohio State has made a habit of blowing teams out this year. The Buckeyes have dominated every team but the Ducks in 2021. They've won by an average of 31.7 points, and that figure jumps above 40 if you only include home victories. Ohio State doesn't lose at home often, and history is on its side in this matchup.

Ohio State is 4-0 straight up in its previous four games against Penn State. The last two meetings between these teams resulted in double-digit wins for the Buckeyes. They're powered by C.J. Stroud, Henderson, and a dynamic receiving corps and they average more than 49 points per game. The Nittany Lions have been held to 20 points or fewer in half their games this year.
