At least Rutgers likely does not have to worry about Chase Young, we guess. Young is reportedly facing a two-game suspension at the worst. That would mean he'd be out for PSU's trip to Ohio Stadium on November 23 and also games against Maryland, Rutgers, and MI.

Young, who has since repaid that loan, leads all of FBS with 13.5 sacks, and had even jumped into the Heisman Trophy conversation.

On ESPN's College GameDay show a short time ago, Kirk Herbstreit, a former Buckeyes quarterback, stated that, because of the amount of money involved, Young will be slotted for a four-game suspension.

The suspension to Ohio State defensive end Chase Young has implications on the Buckeyes' Big Ten and Playoff title hopes, but it has also raised questions as to why Young was suspended in the first place, whether that would result in forfeiture of games and when - if - he could return to the field this season.

Ohio State said on Saturday that there was no truth to a report that Young was facing a four-game suspension.
