Penn State vs. Ohio State Reaction: Drew Astorino

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Penn State earned a 20-14 victory against Ohio State on Saturday afternoon at Ohio Stadium thanks in large part to strong pass defense.

The Nittany Lions limited the Buckeyes and quarterback Braxton Miller to 83 yards passing on the day, and held all Buckeye receivers not named DeVier Posey to one catch or less. At one point, the secondary was playing so well that co-defensive coordinators Larry Johnson and Ron Vanderlinden pulled a defensive back and deployed a four-defensive linemen, four-linebacker and three-defensive back set, so confident in their secondary that they wanted an extra backer to help with run defense.

Safety Drew Astorino finished in a tie with linebacker Nathan Stupar for second on the team in tackles with eight on the day. His performance helped Penn State keep Ohio State off the scoreboard for the duration of the second half and allowed his team to hold on four its ninth victory of the season.
