A feud that started before the game on social media carried over onto the field in Saturday’s top-10 clash between Penn State and Ohio State.
Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins responded before the game to Penn State defensive end Shareef Miller’s claim that Haskins would jolt if he got hit.
The feud then carried over onto the field after Haskins threw an interception. Tensions escalated into a scuffle between the players and officials had to step in with both players, and others, getting flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.
45-yard interception return by Garrett Taylor sets Penn State up at the 28-yard line. Ohio State's Isaiah Prince, Binjimen Victor and Dwayne Haskins and Penn State's Shareef Miller all flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for a scuffle after the play, but penalties offset.

While the penalty yardage was wiped out, both players are now one unsportsmanlike penalty away from being ejected.
Haskins and Miller will likely be trying to get in each other’s heads for the rest of the game to try and provoke a reaction and a potential ejection.
