This past week of college football action saw no changes at the top of the College Football Playoff rankings. That will all change this upcoming weekend, as the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes and No. 9 Penn State Nittany Lions do battle for Big Ten supremacy.
Ohio State will have an advantage with stud edge rusher Chase Young returning from a questionable suspension sanctioned by the NCAA.
On Wednesday night, Young posted a photo to his Instagram account, saying the chip on his shoulder has "only gotten bigger."
If you're a Buckeyes' fan, you should be pumped at the prospect of a more-motivated Young.
The top defensive player in the upcoming NFL Draft missed the past two games due to a suspension handed down by the NCAA. The ban stems from Young taking a loan from a friend in order to fly his girlfriend to the Rose Bowl. Young promptly paid him back, yet the NCAA still opted to suspend the junior.
Prior to the suspension, Young recorded 29 tackles (15.5 for loss) and 13.5 sacks in nine games this season.
With many deriding the NCAA for the reasoning of the suspension, it's all moot now. Young has the chance to hand Penn State its second loss of the season and all but eliminate them from Playoff contention.
