ABC Gambling On Buckeyes And Nittany Lions in Prime Time
College football is just as much about ratings to the television networks as any other product that they air, and that is why on a day where many top conference games are being played, ABC is gambling on the draw of Ohio State for their prime time game.
The Buckeyes come into their game with Penn State as the #1 team in the BCS standings, and while many people around the country believe that ranking is by default, they will be out to solidify their hold on #1 with an impressive win.
Penn State is looking to upset the Buckeyes, and many believe that since Ohio State has not played anyone, that the thoughts of an upset are realistic.
The game will be tough for the Buckeyes as they have to go on the road to Happy Valley, not the place where they want to play their first meaningful game of the year.
The PAC Ten has a big match up between California and Oregon that could have filled the prime time slot, but ABC went with the #1 team, and is banking on their large fan base around the country to draw ratings.
Should Penn State pull off the upset, Boston College would probably be the new #1 team after their comeback victory on Thursday night on the road against Virginia Tech.
Game time for Ohio State and Penn State is set for 8:00.
