By now you’ve heard that on Saturday, The Ohio State Buckeyes overcame an 18-point deficit to defeat the No. 2 ranked Penn State Nittany Lions by a score of 39-38. It was a thrilling game and it looked like Penn State would get the win for the entire game.
ESPN’s stat gurus even gave Penn State a 97.3% chance of winning the game with only 5:42 left in the 4th quarter:
