Ohio State will have Olympic gold medalist Kyle Snyder on Saturday. Snyder was in Russia this last weekend, winning his second Yarygin Grand Prix gold medal.
Snyder is excited for the Penn State-Ohio State dual, as he tweeted in anticipation on Wednesday.
“Now that I am back in the US of A, all my time and energy will be focused on PSU,” Snyder wrote. “There is no team I’d like to destroy more.”
Penn State has won six of the last seven national championships, including the most recent two (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017). Ohio State won the year Penn State didn’t, as the Buckeyes earned the title in 2015. Ohio State also finished as runner-up last season.
The Nittany Lions lead the Buckeyes, 19-12, in the all-time series. Penn State won on the road, 32-12, last year on February 3. In February 2016, Penn State won 24-14 at home.
Penn State next goes up against Iowa at home on Saturday, Feb. 10. That dual is at the Bryce Jordan Center. Meanwhile, Ohio State travels to Michigan for a Sunday, Feb. 11 dual.
