A two-game suspension only delayed the inevitable for Chase Young.

With a half sack of Penn State redshirt freshman quarterback Will Levis in the third quarter, the junior defensive end set the new Ohio State single-season sack record, giving him 14.5 on the year.

The previous record was set 14, set by former defensive lineman Vernon Gholston in 2007.

Young entered the game leading the nation in sacks per game, at 1.69, and tied the Ohio State high-mark for sacks in a game with four against Wisconsin in his previous outing for the Buckeyes.

His 15.5 tackles for loss were second in the nation before the matchup with Penn State.

Young tied the record in the first quarter, bringing redshirt sophomore quarterback Sean Clifford down to earn a half sack alongside junior linebacker Baron Browning.
