The Penn State Nittany Lions handed Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer his first road loss since taking over the program.

The Nittany Lions needed a late comeback to defeat the Buckeyes, 24-21.

It is the second time that an unranked Nittany Lions team defeated a top 2 Ohio State team. The other time was in 1964 when they defeated Woody Hayes’s team.
