We only have one day game today, but it should be a great one, as Ohio State travels to Penn State in a prime-time tv match-up on the Big Ten Network. Given the rivalry between the two schools, PSU’s #1 ranking, and the 7:00 PM start time, I have a feeling Panzer Stadium is going to be rocking tonight.

Penn State (8-1, 1-0) and Ohio State (7-1, 0-1) will enter the week at No. 1 and No. 7, respectively in the USILA Coaches Poll. Penn State holds a 16-6 all-time winning record over the Buckeyes, with the Nittany Lions on a three-game winning streak after a 12-4 win in 2018, a 9-4 win in 2017, and a 6-5 overtime win in 2016. Penn State is 7-4 against Ohio State at home, however this will be the Buckeyes’ first trip to Panzer Stadium.
This series has a history of overtime as six of the 22 contests have gone into extra time. It is an even 3-3 in those overtime games. In 2019, Ohio State is 7-1 and coming off a 14-6 loss in its Big Ten open to unranked Rutgers last Sunday. The lone mutual opponent between the Buckeyes and the Nittany Lions is the Cleveland State Vikings. Penn State beat the Vikings 15-11 just two weeks ago, while Ohio State beat CSU, 12-9, in the season opener.
BUCKEYES IN THE NUTSHELL
• Ohio State is 7-1 this season and coming off its first setback of the season, a loss at home last Sunday against Rutgers. Prior to that, the Buckeyes were off to the third best start in school history and finished unbeaten in non-conference play for the first time ever.
• Ohio State’s offense ranks 19th nationally and has been balanced throughout the first eight games of the season. Four different players have 20 or more points so far and a total of 12 different players have scored multiple goals.
• Junior Tre Leclaire leads the goal scorers with 25. He’s scored multiple times in all eight games and is also tops on the team with 27 total points. Leclaire’s .403 shooting percentage is 10th-best in the conference.
Coach Myers expects his lads will be more focused tonight than they were versus Rutgers last Sunday.

All business on this trip for the Buckeyes.
The No. 4 Virginia men’s lacrosse team clinched the No. 1 seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament with an 11-10 victory over No. 18 North Carolina on Saturday afternoon at Klöckner Stadium. The victory was the eighth in a row for UVa (9-2, 3-0 ACC), giving the Cavaliers their first eight-game winning streak since 2012. After losing 18 straight ACC games, Virginia has won four of its last five conference games. The Wahoos will own at least a share of its 25th regular season ACC title and first since sharing the 2012 regular season title with Duke. Virginia will be the No. 1 seed in the ACC Tournament for the first time since 2010.
Goodness. When you see Pat Spencer on the tracks, get out of the way.
