WE RECOMMEND FOLLOW US Associated Press Television News After cruising through the first 10 games against teams that didn’t put up much a fight, No. 2 Ohio State found itself in a slugfest with No. 9 Penn State.The Buckeyes responded, winning with defense.Justin Hillard intercepted Penn State backup Will Levis’ pass and the Buckeyes stopped the Nittany Lions on fourth down on two late drives to seal a 28-17 victory and lock up the Big Ten East title.J.K. Dobbins rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns , and Justin Fields threw for 188 yards and two scores for Ohio State (10-0, 8-0).Ohio State held on after Penn State (9-2, 7-2) took advantage of two second-half turnovers to climb back in the game after trailing 21-0. This was a far different scenario for Ohio State, which hadn’t yet had to play hard into the second half.“We talked about going into a big heavyweight match, and you have to take shots,” Ohio State coach Ryan Day said. “One of the things about playing in a game like this is you have to be willing to take punches and you have to not flinch when it happens. That was a great example. That was the first time we really were taking shots there.”The Buckeyes were clinging to a 21-17 lead early in the fourth quarter when Fields threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to Chris Olave to create some breathing room.Ohio State, with Chase Young back from a two-game suspension, then got the interception from Hillard before shutting down two late Penn State drives on fourth down, aided by deafening crowd noise. The last drive included back-to-back sacks of backup quarterback Will Levis by Young and linebacker Baron Browning.Fields fight backFields fumbled away the ball twice, once as he was crossing the goal line for what would have been a touchdown. But he got critical yards on the ground , rushing for 68 yards on 21 carries and threw beautiful second half touchdown passes to K.J. Hill and Olave.And he got knocked around plenty, and at one point late in the game was slow to get up after being sacked but stayed in the game.“He’s a warrior, I’m telling you,” Day said. “He’s got the heart of a lion.”Chase Returns Young was back in action after sitting out two games as a penalty for breaking the rules by accepting a personal loan. And he was a force, picking up nine tackles, including three sacks . He has 16 1/2 for the season, the most ever by a Buckeye.Clifford outFreshman QB Levis finished up Penn State’s first scoring drive in the third quarter — capped by an 18-yard touchdown run by Journey Brown — after Sean Clifford left the game with an injury. Coach James Franklin said Clifford was available to come back in but wasn’t 100% so he stayed with Levis, who scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter.“I was a little nervous the first couple plays, but then it all went away, and I started having fun and doing my thing,” Levis said.Coincidentally, Levis signed with Penn State after Fields withdrew his commitment to Franklin and chose Georgia in 2018. Fields transferred to Ohio State in January.Things are getting interesting in Columbus.You didn’t count out @PennStateFball , did you? pic.twitter.com/wbk12gJNho — Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) November 23, 2019The TakeawayPenn State: Statistically, the Nittany Lions were beaten soundly but managed to hang around until late. Journey Brown ran the ball 11 times for 64 yards.“No one flinched,” Penn State safety Garrett Taylor said. “We came out and fought hard.”Ohio State: The Buckeyes outgained the Nittany Lions 417-227 but were stricken by uncharacteristic turnovers. Now it’s on to Ann Arbor for the rivalry game against No. 12 Michigan.“It’s good to have a full game under your belt, especially going into next week,” linebacker Pete Werner said.Poll implication The🐐on what this win means to him:”Before the game I was tearing up just looking at my big bros who raised me through this process, and you get emotional sometimes. I’m just happy we got a win in the last game in The Shoe.

EDMONTON, A.B. — New numbers show Alberta’s economy continues to dig itself out of the deep hole caused by crashing oil prices as Premier Rachel Notley’s government both spends and saves more.Finance Minister Joe Ceci says the province is on track for a $9.1-billion deficit when the budget year ends March 31. That’s $1.4 billion lower than the deficit expected when Ceci tabled this year’s budget last spring.Ceci notes forecasts also point to an economic rebound as production goes up and unemployment falls. The house resumes sitting March 8. Ceci is to bring in the 2018-19 budget later in the spring. “Nearly 90,000 full-time jobs were created over the last year and Alberta’s GDP growth led the country at 4.5 percent in 2017,” Ceci said in a statement Wednesday after releasing the third-quarter update to the 2017-18 budget. “We will continue to work hard to ensure this recovery reaches all Albertans.”The province is expected to take in an extra $1.9 billion this year on $46.9 billion in revenue – mainly due to higher than expected oil revenue and returns on investments. Spending is also rising to $55.9 billion – about $1 billion more than projected at budget – to cover increases in services for children, people with disabilities, and for employment and income supports.The debt is going to hit almost $42 billion this year. Debt payments will be $1.4 billion. Alberta will bring in $883 million from crude oil royalties, almost double what it had expected, although revenue from bitumen royalties will be $2.4 billion – about $188 million less than projected.Oil revenues were hampered this year by the price discount Alberta’s blended bitumen sells at compared with the benchmark North American West Texas Intermediate price. The discount is tied mainly to pipeline bottlenecks that drive up the price of getting Alberta’s heavy oil to U.S. refineries and ports.The NDP has been running high deficits throughout its term in government. The government says slashing budgets and jobs would only worsen the situation and kill an economic recovery.The province has been saving money by negotiating contracts with zero pay increases for teachers and nurses and other health professionals,. It has also axed redundant agencies and committees and consolidated other programs and services.Alberta has been hit with multiple credit downgrades, however, which have increased the cost of borrowing. Ceci has promised to present a more detailed plan to get the budget back in balance by 2023.
Last month, the company said it would stop all non-essential spending on the expansion project to triple the amount of oil flowing from Alberta to the West Coast, which Alberta says is critical to reducing discounts on its product due mainly to pipeline bottlenecks.Kean reiterated that construction won’t be restarted unless there are sufficient assurances by the end of this month that it can proceed.Outside the meeting in downtown Calgary, about 50 vocal pipeline supporters armed with signs and slogans assembled on the sidewalk, chanting as passing cars honked their horns.Picketers Mike Owens and Derek B. Cooper say they were unimpressed with Morneau’s announcement, adding it offers further proof that the Liberal government has done too little to make sure the pipeline wins approval.Picket organizer James Robson of the Canada Action Coalition says the government shouldn’t have to offer money to make sure an approved pipeline will be built.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) CALGARY, A.B. – The CEO of Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. says he “appreciates” an announcement by Finance Minister Bill Morneau that the government will compensate investors in the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion if “unnecessary delays” cause costs to rise.Morneau says the government is willing to “provide indemnity” to any investors, be they the project’s original architects or otherwise, to ensure the controversial Alberta-B.C. project is able to proceed.Kinder Morgan chief executive Steven Kean offered no further comment during his remarks and declined to talk to reporters after his company’s first annual general meeting since being spun off by U.S.-based Kinder Morgan Inc. to hold most of its Canadian assets a year ago.
Walking into the first practice of the week at the Steelwood Athletic Training Facility, it seems clear the Ohio State wrestling team does not lack confidence. With upcoming matches against rival Michigan and No. 1 Penn State, the Buckeyes are treating this week like any other. “We’re trying to keep everything the same,” said redshirt sophomore Drew Stone. “We did good against Illinois, so we’ll have to replicate everything like that.” Coming off a 25-9 win against the Fighting Illini Friday, the No. 6 Buckeyes (10-2, 4-2 Big Ten) will take on Michigan (8-5, 2-4 Big Ten) and the 2012 national champions, Penn State (9-1, 6-1 Big Ten), over the weekend. In their most recent matches, the Wolverines lost a close match to Purdue, 19-18, while the Nittany Lions crushed Illinois, 37-0. Although Michigan might not pose as big of a threat as Penn State does, OSU redshirt sophomore Logan Stieber said the team is not taking the Wolverines lightly. “We have to be ready for both teams and not be too up or down for the matches,” the defending 133-pound NCAA Champion said. “Penn State is No. 1 so that’s a big matchup, but Michigan is very good too, so we have to make sure we don’t look past them.” OSU coach Tom Ryan could not agree more, saying that the team needs to treat each opponent equally. “We have to prepare for everybody,” Ryan said. “We need to make sure we know what their strengths and weaknesses are and work hard.” Michigan has four wrestlers ranked in the top 20 in their respective weight classes. The Nittany Lions have eight, six of which are in the top five. “Right now they (Penn State) have a couple of individuals that are really good,” Ryan said. “I mean real good. They have a great coach. They’re committed to their program. They’re in a wrestling state. They have a lot of good things going on there but so do we. We look forward to wrestling them.” The Nittany Lions are not the only team with an impressive lineup, as the Buckeyes feature nine wrestlers ranked in the top 20, including two in the top five. Ryan said the Buckeyes will have to take advantage in the 133- and 141-pound weight classes, as those are the only two classes where Penn State does not have a top 20-ranked wrestler. “The lighter weights really have to step up,” Ryan said. “We have to pick up bonus points at 133 and 141.” Those weight classes at OSU are manned by the team’s highest-ranked wrestlers, Stieber, No. 1 at 133-poundsand his brother Hunter Stieber, No. 2 at 141-pounds. However, the Buckeyes will need to hold their ground against Penn State’s upper weight classes of 184- and 197-pounds. OSU redshirt freshman and 16th-ranked Kenny Courts will face off against junior and No. 1-ranked Ed Ruth in the 184-pound weight class. The 197-pound weight class features OSU sophomore and 13th-ranked Andrew Campolattano against No. 3-ranked Quentin Wright, a senior. Overall, Ryan said he wants his team to hold nothing back, as he expects the match to be a close one. “It could come down to a point here, a point there,” Ryan said. “We’re going to need a total team effort to beat these guys.” OSU is scheduled to travel to Ann Arbor to take on Michigan at 6 p.m. Friday and then heads home to battle Penn State at St. John Arena at 4 p.m. Sunday.
