COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - There's a joke making the rounds in the Big Ten that maybe they ought to just name the freshman-of-the-week honors in the conference the Christian Hackenberg Award.
After all, it seems he wins it every week.
Penn State's rookie quarterback gets his biggest test to date when he plays at No. 4 Ohio State on Saturday night. The Buckeyes are spending a lot of time working on how they'll go about preventing him from winning the honor a fourth time.
Adding to that, the Buckeyes' defense has a lot to prove after getting roughed up last week by Iowa in a victory that stretched Ohio State's win streak to 19 in a row.
The game will be seen at 8pm on abc27. Coverage begins at 7:30pm with "Penn State Prime-Time," hosted by Gregg Mace and Josh Reed, who will be in Columbus, Ohio for the game.
