If you didn't already like No. 9 Penn State's chances against No. 4 Ohio State at home this weekend in Happy Valley, you're going want to reconsider after this. 

Buckeyes star defensive end Nick Bosa has officially been ruled out of Week 5's Big Ten East showdown between Penn State and Ohio State. 

This heavy-weight matchup in Happy Valley was already one of the most intriguing opening lines in college football's Week 5, but the absence of Bosa really shakes things up with the Nittany Lions currently +4-point underdogs at home. 

Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley has never lost a game at home as the starter in Penn State through more than two seasons, and the winner of this game has gone on to win both the Big Ten East and Big Ten title each of the past two seasons.
