You all had Jerron Cage scoring a touchdown in the first half against Penn State, right? Neither did we.

Ohio State's 305-pound fifth-year senior defensive tackle returned a Sean Clifford fumble 57 yards to the end zone in the second quarter of the Buckeyes' matchup with Penn State, giving the scarlet and gray a 17-7 lead after the extra point.
Cage scooped up the loose ball after Zach Harrison and Tyreke Smith combined on a punishing sack of the Nittany Lions' quarterback, and the return gave the Buckeyes their sixth defensive touchdown of the year.

The score from cage was the second fumble return touchdown from a Buckeye defensive tackle this season, after Haskell Garrett did the same on another Harrison strip sack in the season opener against Minnesota.
