Battle of the States

"Quarterback Braxton Miller #5 of the Ohio State Buckeyes dives into the end zone for touchdown against the Penn State Nittany Lions in the third quarter at Beaver Stadium on October 27, 2012 in State College, Pennsylvania. The Ohio State Buckeyes won, 35-23, to remain undefeated."

Last weekend, I ventured north back to my home-away-from-home to shoot the Ohio State Buckeyes take on the Penn State Nittany Lions for Getty Images in State College, Pa.

Ironically, of all the time I've spent in Penn State over the last year, I haven't shot one football game. Maybe I should be more clear, I have never shot any action on the field. At past games, I've shot features and news rather than the plays on the field.

As much as I wanted to continue to document the ongoing scandal, story - I stuck to the game plan and focused on the action of the game - which I might add is no easy task at that stadium as the sidelines very, very overcrowded.

Much like every other game I've been at - Penn State lost - and this was my favorite story telling frame of the game.
