COLUMBUS, Ohio — The football programs at Penn State and Ohio State have had troubled and troubling seasons.
Penn State is still in shock over the scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who is charged with sexually abusing young boys. Coach Joe Paterno was fired last week amid claims he did not do enough to alert authorities of an alleged assault that was brought to his attention.
The university president was also let go. The criminal investigation continues.
Ohio State's issues seem minor in comparison. The Buckeyes have been under NCAA investigation for almost a year since it was learned football players traded memorabilia for cash and discounted tattoos. The scandal led to coach Jim Tressel being ousted. An NCAA probe continues.
Penn State and Ohio State play Saturday in Columbus.
