NORMAN, Okla. -- Ohio State and Oklahoma, the top two teams in the APs all-time rankings, will meet Saturday with the high stakes one might expect in such a matchup.Ohio State (2-0), which topped the all-time chart, is ranked No. 3 nationally this season. A strong non-conference win would strengthen the Buckeyes case for a spot in the College Football Playoff, should they be in position to be considered at seasons end.Oklahoma (1-1), No. 2 in the all-time rankings, is No. 14 this season after losing its season opener to Houston. The Sooners need a boost to get back near the top of this seasons poll and earn a chance to possibly return to the Playoff. A loss would likely knock the Sooners out of contention.You talk about the playoff picture, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield said. This is a big game for later on down the road. Were not focusing on that, but it does have the potential to affect later on in the season.Then theres the Heisman race. Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett, the fifth-place finisher in 2014, matches up against Mayfield, the fourth-place finisher in 2015. Both are in position to vault into the forefront of the conversation.Thats not all. Two of the best coaches in the business, Ohio States Urban Meyer and Oklahomas Bob Stoops, will match wits.Then theres pride. The programs have met twice. Oklahoma won 29-28 in Columbus, Ohio, in 1977. Ohio State won 24-14 in Norman, Oklahoma, in 1983.When you play these games and win them, its a boost, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. Theyre exciting for everybody. Theyre challenging and theyre great competition that youre going against. They can give you a lift when you win.Meyer said hes glad this isnt the opener for his young team, yet knows going to Norman is a true test.Im glad we have two under our belt for the new guys to play a little bit, he said. Weve got a lot of respect for their personnel. Were facing a very good team.Here are some things to look for in the game on Saturday:CURTIS SAMUEL: Samuel, Ohio States H-back, had nine catches for 177 yards against Bowling Green and ran 13 times for 84 yards. Against Tulsa, he caught five passes for 62 yards and ran eight times for 78 yards.Each week, they progress him more as a running back, Oklahoma defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said. There were perimeter plays with him before, now theyre starting to run him up inside. You just have to be conscious of where hes at and what you want to do with him.JOE MIXON: Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine is closing in on all kinds of school records, but Mixon is having the better season. The sophomore has 320 all-purpose yards in two games. He ran for 117 yards last week against Louisiana-Monroe. Hes a threat as a receiver, runner and as a return man.OHIO STATE D: The Buckeyes have allowed just two field goals this season. The only touchdown scored on the Buckeyes came on an interception return.Theyre just physical, Mayfield said. Theyre all around good players. Yeah, they lost a lot of people from last year, but that doesnt matter. They do a good job recruiting and filling in the spots.BALL HAWKS: Ohio State already has three interception returns for touchdowns by three different players. Mayfield occasionally struggles with forcing throws, so hell need to be careful against such an aggressive unit.BIG ANDREWS: Oklahomas 6-foot-5, 250-pound tight end Mark Andrews has five catches and three touchdowns this season. For his career, he has 24 receptions and 10 touchdowns. Hes a matchup problem who could create openings for his teammates.---Follow Cliff Brunt (at)CliffBruntAP. Sharrif Floyd Jersey .

Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Pat Chambers watched nearly all of the film available on Wright State heading into Saturday.Penn States coach was worried about the Raiders, specifically their ability to shoot 3-pointers with pinpoint accuracy and fill hoops at a clip of nearly 83 points per game. That average took a big hit after Penn State tilted the court decidedly with stingy defense in the Nittany Lions 72-50 win on Saturday.I probably watched six out of their nine games, Chambers said. They can really fill it up. A team like that really scares me, and man, these guys really stepped up.Shep Garner scored 17 points, Payton Banks added 15 and the Nittany Lions (6-3) held the Raiders (6-3) to just 16-of-66 shooting. Mark Alstork led Wright State with 15 points while Justin Mitchell and Steven Davis added nine each. Mitchell led the Raiders with 11 rebounds.Wright State shooters made just 6 of 23 3-pointers but heated up with three in the final seven minutes. By then it was too late as the Nittany Lions led by 27 when Mike La Tulip hit the Raiders final 3-pointer with 3:51 left.Im pretty sure thats the worst offensive output that Ive ever seen in 22 years, Wright State coach Scott Nagy said.Josh Reaves and Lamar Stevens added 12 points apiece for the Nittany Lions (6-3) who won their fourth straight. Tony Carr grabbed 12 rebounds.The Nittany Lions led for all but 56 seconds and pulled away after leading 29-26 at halftime. Penn State opened the second half with a 13-2 run and steadily increased it as the game wore on. The Raiders werent able to cut Penn States lead by any more than 13 points and did so when Grant Benzinger tipped in a rebound to make it 45-32 with 14:42 left.I thought our team did a really nice job coming out in the second half and basically saying, were better than what we showed in the first half, Chambers said.BIG MIKE, BIG DIFFERENCE MAKERPenn State forward Mike Watkins was dominant before foul trouble forced him to spend most of the first half on the bench.The 6-foot-9 forward grabbed five rebounds, blocked four shots and added a steal in the first seven minutes he played. He finished with eight blocks, nine rebounds, a steal and addded eight points.dddddddddddd He was 6-for-6 shooting from the free-throw line.Id like to say a lot of times, we have really good defensive possessions and I like to think of myself as a really good on-ball defender, Reaves said. But just having Mike behind you, its just so comforting. Its God-given. Its just a blessing to have him behind us playing defense.When Watkins returned in the second half, he continued to foil the Raiders who had little success driving the basket and underneath. They finished with just 16 points in the paint.STEVENS BOUNCE BACKStevens first half ended poorly. He missed his last five shots, all short or mid-range jumpers and Wright State chipped away at Penn States lead in the meantime. Stevens entered the locker room frustrated.He sparked Penn States run in the second half with six of the teams first 13 points including two nice drives, one ending with a vicious slam dunk between defenders.I think that ignited us for sure, Chambers said. Lamar was pretty upset about how he finished the half and I talked to him very kindly at halftime and then he said to me, `I got you. And thats when I knew Lamar was about to turn it up and really play well. But we need that consistency for the minutes that hes on the floor.THE BIG PICTUREWright State: Picked in the preseason to finish in the middle of the Horizon League pack, the Raiders entered the game a game behind Valparaiso and Oakland for the conferences top spot. Theyll play five of their next six games on the road including the Horizon League opener against Oakland on Dec. 29.Penn State: The Nittany Lions have four players averaging in double figures and two are freshmen. The balanced scoring has been buoyed by Chambers commitment to spread minutes around to keep his players fresh. Eight of 10 Nittany Lions played at least 15 minutes on Saturday and the strategy appears to be paying off with four games left before Penn State begins Big Ten play.UP NEXTWright State plays at Loyola of Chicago on Wednesday.Penn State hosts George Mason on Wednesday.
