Ohio State fans wear 'We Are Penn State' shirts to hoops game

This weekend, Ohio State and Michigan will meet on the football field in one of the most storied rivalries in all of sports. However, in order to grab a spot in the Big Ten title game, the winner of that game will need some help. To have a chance at playing in the conference title game, Ohio State and Michigan need Michigan State to lose to Penn State on Saturday.
