Penn State has played some of the top teams tough in the Big Ten Conference, but slip-ups against schools lower in the standings have been damaging to the Nittany Lions this season. After competitive losses to Ohio State and Iowa in the past week, Penn State hopes to rediscover the winning formula against a Nebraska team that used the Nittany Lions (7-12, 4-11) to score its only Big Ten victory of the season on Feb. 14.
The Big Ten had quite a slate on Sunday with Michigan and Ohio State battling in the early game, Maryland traveling to face Rutgers, Iowa hosting Penn State after that, and Wisconsin and Northwestern battling in the late game. Let’s take a look at what happened. Talk about a monster matchup.
Ohio State’s competitors performed extremely well, with nine wins 11 races entered. The Buckeyes did not send any field performers to the meet. Junior Yanique Dayle picked led the way for the Buckeyes, picking up her first two wins in a Buckeye uniform after transferring from New Mexico Junior College, where she helped the team win the JUCO national indoor championship in 2020.
