"They were the better team"




Bill O'Brien said little. Eight full months of being thrust into the spotlight meant he had to spend most of his time talking, talking, talking.


After finally getting to return to the sideline and coach a live game on Saturday, Penn State's new boss wasn't eager to start the conversation back up.


But what he did say stung more than any part of the Nittany Lions' demoralizing 24-14 loss to Ohio.


"They beat us," O'Brien said. "They were the better team." PAGE 1C


 


BREAKS GO THE


BOBCATS' WAY



A tip of a pass and an unlikely deflection was all it needed to stymie the Penn State defense and pull all of the Nittany Lions' momentum in the favor of Ohio. Leading 14-3 on the first drive of the second half, Penn State's fortunes turned on a third-and-long play. PAGE 6C


 


NOTES FROM THE GAME



Three key starters missed extended periods of time because of lower-body injuries. Cornerback Stephon Morris and tailback Bill Belton did not return after both suffered sprained ankles in the second half.



Penn State held a "moment of reflection" before the game, asking fans for silence to "consider all victims of child sexual abuse and those who have endured suffering and loss." It was also the closest the school came to acknowledging Joe Paterno. PAGE 6C
