The blocked kick gave Penn State the lead, one it would never relinquish, and gave James Franklin his first win over a ranked team since arriving in Happy Valley. The Nittany Lions outscored Urban Meyer's Buckeyes 17-0 in the final quarter before 107,280 at Beaver Stadium.
The win shakes up the College Football Playoff race; Ohio State likely needs to win out to make the final four, which would include a win over Michigan, as well as a victory in the Big Ten title game.
