Two tired but happy teams will meet Saturday afternoon as No. 6 Ohio State hosts Penn State in the teams' respective Big Ten season opener in Columbus, Ohio.
The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions participated in some late-night hoops on Wednesday as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, which was won by their conference. Penn State (7-1) posted a 76-54 home win over Wake Forest, and Ohio State (8-0) cruised to a 74-59 victory over No. 7 North Carolina.
"Their team was better than our team," Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said. "Their coach was a lot better than our coach."
