CJ Stroud to Be ESPN College Gameday’s Guest Picker For Penn State-Ohio State

CJ Stroud against Penn State in 2021.

On Saturday morning, ESPN College Gameday will be in Columbus for the showdown between seventh-ranked Penn State and third-ranked Ohio State.

Former Ohio State and current Houston Texans quarterback CJ Stroud will be the guest picker for Saturday’s game.

Stroud was the second overall pick by the Texans in this past April’s draft and has had a hot start in his rookie year. Stroud has thrown for 1,600 yards, nine touchdowns to just one interception, and has a 96.4 passer rating through six games this season, leading Houston to a surprising 3-3 record.

In two seasons as the quarterback for Ohio State, Stroud threw for 8,123 yards and 85 touchdowns to 12 interceptions and won both of his starts against Penn State.

In their last meeting between the two teams, Stroud went 24 for 33 for 354 yards and a touchdown in a 44-31 win at Beaver Stadium. In 2021, Stroud went 22 for 34 for 305 yards and a touchdown in Ohio State’s 33-24 win on its home field.

Penn State will look for its first win at Ohio State since 2011 Saturday.
