Ohio State vs Penn State
Date: Saturday, October 30, 2021, Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Stadium: Ohio Stadium
Earlier in the season, most college football fans looked at Penn State going into Ohio Stadium to face Ohio State as a potential Big Ten East elimination game. For Penn State, the results of the last three weeks have dramatically changed that equation. Penn State lost a hard-fought game 23-20 at Iowa on Oct. 9 and then lost in nine overtimes at home to Illinois last Saturday, 20-18.

As of right now, it doesn’t look like it will. There is still a 44% chance of rain by the time kickoff rolls around at 7:30 pm. There is also at least a 30% chance of rain all the way until 11 pm. That means the Buckeyes could be playing yet another game in the rain the entire time.
As an Ohio State football fan who will once again be in attendance, I really hope it doesn’t rain the whole game. I would like to not be miserable watching the game. The one good news is that it’s not supposed to be super cold; it will be 55 at kickoff and it will only drop to 52 by 11.
Ohio State’s passing game vs Penn State’s defense. Buckeyes quarterback C.J. Stroud has been spectacular after some early struggles. He threw for four touchdowns in the 54-7 rout of Indiana last week. Ohio State’s top two receivers, Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson, are likely first-round draft picks. Penn State counters with the best defense the Buckeyes have seen this season.
