COLUMBUS, Ohio — Four big games up, four down for Ohio State. And no matter how you look at it, this team is developing a personality in big games.
The two losses in the BCS title games, the loss at Southern Cal in September and this one against Penn State. All four games had national championship implications — and each time the Buckeyes wilted.
Still, this most certainly isn’t the same Ohio State team that looked laughably out of place at USC. And it’s not just at quarterback, where dynamic freshman Terrelle Pryor replaced fifth-year senior Todd Boeckman.
