    They don’t wish to recall their last trip here to Columbus. For the matter, Penn State players don’t want to live on last year’s double-overtime thriller either.
    Odds are the Nittany Lions will not behave like they did in 2013, a 63-14 reduction. Odds are they likely will not shut out the Buckeyes from the second half just like they did in 2014.
    Regardless, the Lions have not been overly excited to reminisce about either game this week.
    “We lost,” senior captain Jordan Lucas said. “That is what I recall.”
    That would be the frequent denominator there, yes.
    What chance do the Lions have this time around against the No. 1 team at the polls, the defending national champs who have never lost a regular season Big Ten match in four years under Urban Meyer? Slim, albeit better than it appeared a week back.
    By the sounds of things, the Lions are heading into the Horseshoe in better health than they’ve needed for the last month. That should imply players like Saquon Barkley and Angelo Mangiro are back in the lineup along with each the typical faces on defense. Even Adam Breneman got in his first regular repetitions with the offense this week after a week to the scout team to return to actions.
    The Buckeyes haven’t necessarily lived up to their No. 1 position through six months, tied or trailing Virginia Tech, Northern Illinois, Indiana and Maryland at halftime. But it’s difficult to imagine them coming out tired for this one, using a crowded house in primetime.
