Some of the luster has been knocked off the Week 13 matchup between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 9 Penn State due to the Nittany Lions losing to Minnesota, but there’s still a lot on the line in one of the biggest games on Saturday’s schedule.

The clash in Columbus serves as a de facto Big Ten West title game. A Buckeyes victory would clinch the division, and if Penn State wins, all it would need is a win over lowly Rutgers next week to secure a spot in the Big Ten championship.

A one-loss Ohio State team that misses out on the conference championship game would be an interesting case for the Playoff committee, and a two-loss Nittany Lions team would be out of contention.

The Buckeyes have been universally dominant this season, their closest win being a 34-10 triumph over Michigan State. But a Penn State team with its back against the wall may post the biggest challenge yet.
