Our Buckeye Talk text subscribers once again were treated to a live Thursday night audience for this episode previewing what annually stands up as the biggest game in the Big Ten East. Ohio State travels to Penn State on Saturday, and while the Nittany Lions cannot recreate Whiteout conditions, they still pose a threat to the Buckeyes' national championship hopes.

The Buckeyes were favored by 12 points as of the moment we hit record Thursday night. Doug Lesmerises, Nathan Baird and Stephen Means give their picks for OSU's first road game of the coronavirus era. Two of them believe the Buckeyes are too talented after Penn State lost both Micah Parsons and Journey Brown and will cover. One of them expects a game deep into the fourth quarter.

We share the results of our texter poll, breaking down how close they expect the game to be and how worried they are about an upset. We also invite some of them on the pod to ask us their questions about this always competitive matchup.

Thanks as always for listening to Buckeye Talk.
