There's no magic power in the whiteout. When the home team is playing like crap, it just sounds like 110,000 really quiet people.

They had a few rough calls, most notably an incomplete fourth down pass where PSU got away with interference.

I haven't gotten to see much of Penn State this season until these last 2 weeks, but there's no way they're one of the ten best teams in the country.

There's a lot of "This is terrible!" in this thread, under the impression that there's some risk an undefeated Ohio State team has any possibility of being left out of the playoff. Aside from paranoia that's utterly unconnected from recent history, there's no reason anyone should believe this.

The biggest argument that can be made is that, outside of Michigan, which has always been played at noon during this timespan, most of the noon games were against lesser teams, and most of the night games were against higher quality competition.

That does explain why we've been more apt to lose at night than at noon, but it also helps to explain the main reason given for why people prefer night games: because supposedly the atmosphere is more exciting and the crowd  is more up for the game. If we ever played Rutgers or Bowling Green at night, I doubt anyone would find the game more thrilling.

Atmosphere has literally never once been an issue for our noon starts against Michigan.
