Ohio State: nothing else matters

Let the campaigning begin! And no, I'm not talking about the presidential election. With the first set of BCS standings released yesterday there is sure to be an unending stream of lobbying from all specters of college football. With their team No. 3, Penn State people are sure to get involved (They already have. Take a look at the message boards). Still, none of that matters unless the Lions can beat Ohio State this Saturday in Columbus. The season rests on this game and this game only. Win and Penn State is one step closer to the Big Ten title. Win and the Lions are still in an enviable position for a national championship shot. Lose and ... well, you know.

Dare I say, it's the biggest game for the program since 1994, and possibly since the 1987 Fiesta Bowl. I don't have to tell you what happened then. Here's this morning's story looking ahead to Ohio State and looking back at the Lions' win over Michigan.
