No. 21 Penn State won for the first time since coach Joe Paterno was fired, with Stephfon Green running for two touchdowns and the Nittany Lions' solid defense holding Ohio State scoreless in the second half of a 20-14 victory Saturday. Penn State (9-2, 6-1) earned a share of the Big Ten's Leaders Division title and set up a division title game next week at Wisconsin. The winner will play in the conference's first championship game on Dec. 3. In what was expected to be a defensive struggle, the teams did all of their scoring in the opening half before the defenses took over. Braxton Miller ran for a touchdown and threw a 7-yard scoring pass to Jake Stoneburner for Ohio State (6-5, 3-4), but he had an intentional grounding and three incompletions on the Buckeyes' final possession.
