To Ohio State's coaches, four players stood out among the rest on Saturday.
Right guard Wyatt Davis was awarded offensive player of the game, linebacker Pete Werner and defensive end Chase Young split the defensive player of the game award and Sevyn Banks was named special teams player of the game for each of their performances in the Buckeyes' 28-17 victory against Penn State.
Davis, a first-year starter, powered an offensive line that led Ohio State on a 13-play, 91-yard opening touchdown drive that featured 12 runs. He had four knockdowns in 83 plays.
Young, who earned Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week honors on Sunday, had nine tackles and three sacks. During the game, he broke the program's single-season sack record of 14 that had been set by Vernon Gholston. Young now has 16.5 sacks this season in nine games.
Charged with covering tight end Pat Freiermuth for much of the afternoon, Werner officially had a team-high 10 tackles, including eight solo tackles. He also forced a pair of pass breakups.
Banks stood out due to his play on the kickoff unit, which included a tackle at Penn State's 13-yard line.
