Maybe moral victories are the best we can hope for when it comes to Penn State versus Ohio State. As another year passes without a win over the Buckeyes (this time handing OSU its longest winning streak against the Nittany Lions - five games and counting), most of Nittany Nation seems satisfied that the team played well and didn't get embarrassed. How much of that stems directly from the team's inspired and generally competent play in Columbus so starkly contrasting with the previous weekend's circus of ineptitude and shame versus Illinois is up for debate. What can't be disputed is the opportunity still awaiting Penn State if the Lions can continue to build on their solid, if insufficient performance at the Horseshoe. Two teams awaiting in the final four weeks of the regular season appear in the top ten of this year's first (and quite possibly the dumbest) edition of the college football playoff rankings. Mailman, Chris, and Kevin wrap up the Ohio State game, grouse about the lunacy of the selection committee's twisted and contradictory ranking logic, and look ahead to Penn State's trip to College Park to face Maryland.
