Ohio State defensive end Chase Young shines vs. Penn State in return from two-game suspension
The star defensive end missed the last two games due to NCAA rules violations
Ohio State defensive end Chase Young returned from a two-game suspension on Saturday after the NCAA determined that he received extra benefits prior to last season's Rose Bowl. He made his presence felt in a big way for the second-ranked Buckeyes as they defeated No. 8 Penn State 28-17.
Young had three sacks, four tackles for loss and two forced fumbles vs. the Nittany Lions.
It didn't take long for Young to make an impression. He had a tackle for loss and a half-sack on consecutive plays midway through the first quarter after the Buckeyes put a touchdown on the board to take a 7-0 lead over the Nittany Lions. He had another half-sack on quarterback Will Levis on third-and-16 in the third quarter to swing momentum back to the Buckeyes after Penn State cut the lead to 21-14. That half-sack gave him 14.5 sacks on the season, 0.5 more than Vernon Gholston's previous single-season school record of 14 set in 2007.
Take a look at the future first-round pick get off the ball and get to Sean Clifford in the first quarter.
Young entered the week with 13.5 sacks -- second in the nation behind Oregon State's Hamilcar Rashed Jr. He leads the nation in sacks per game at 1.69 after sitting out the previous two games.
