After two useless second from last quarter arrangement, Jones was sidelined.

Meyer appeared to locate a two-quarterback blend a week ago with Jones having enormous influence of the field and Barrett assuming control inside the adversaries' 20. It worked incredible in a defeat of Maryland. Not so against a Penn State barrier that came in driving the country in sacks.

Last season, Bosa finished Ohio State's twofold extra minutes triumph with a sack and he had one of five sacks Saturday night against Hackenberg. The lesser appeared to be supporting his back subsequent to getting dumped in the second from last quarter and completed 7 for 13 for 120 yards and a touchdown.

Penn State inclined toward Barkley, who had missed the last two recreations with a foot harm. He had any kind of effect, however his long touchdown run that could have put Penn State up 10-0 in the first quarter was wiped out by a holding approach right protect Brian Gaia.
