Ohio State’s trailer for the Penn State game is really good
Ohio State-Penn State is not a rivalry, although it’s felt like one at times. Penn State essentially won the 2005 Big Ten championship with a 17-10 win over No. 6 Ohio State on Oct. 8, and did the same in 2008 when the third-ranked Nittany Lions beat the 10th-ranked Buckeyes 13-6 in the Horseshoe. Ohio State returned the favor a year later with a 24-7 win over No. 11 Penn State in Happy Valley.
Penn State isn’t challenging for the Big Ten title this season, but it’s the non-rivalry match-ups between powerhouses that make college football such a treat. Maybe it’s just me, but I have just as much fun watching Penn State-Ohio State, Nebraska-Michigan, USC-Oregon and Georgia-LSU as any rivalry week games.
Saturday’s game also serves as the first of many (we hope) meetings between Urban Meyer and James Franklin.
The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Well, this video is just all sorts of insanity.
It’s Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota animated as Super Mario, narrated by Gus Johnson.
Nice work by the folks at Fox Sports Live.
The 49ers take you through a day in the life of Jim Harbaugh
If you’ve ever sat and wondered what it would be like to shadow an NFL head coach for a day, San Francisco senior manager of social media Scott Kegley has you covered in a recent piece on Jim Harbaugh.
Kegley follows Harbaugh from the time sun comes up when he takes out the trash, to dinner consisting of a hot dog and pop from a vendor.
Most of the piece focuses on his life outside of the office, with his family and young children, but there is one brief note on his time at the facility, with the most interesting part being his interaction with his players during lunch.
“While at lunch, Harbaugh often makes it a point to sit with various players each day. He’s genuinely engaged, often laughing, and one can assume the conversations are rarely about the game. He tries to get to know his players on a personal level. This day was no different, as he mingled with some of the players.” Kegley points out in the article.
The full piece is something you really have to read in its entirety to appreciate. It’s rare to get this kind of access.
