Penn State 13, Ohio State 6

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State provided the test. And Penn State passed it with flying colors. The Nittany Lions scored their biggest victory in 14 years in outlasting the Buckeyes, 13-6, in an old school defensive slugfest. With three games remaining, they are poised to claim their third Big Ten title and are still very much in the national title picture. Penn State will remain third when the BCS standings are released tonight behind No. 1 Texas and No. 2 Alabama, both winners yesterday. Here are some photos from the game.
