Ohio State might be the ones wearing the new LeBron James Soldier XI shoes, but Penn State was first to make an homage to the NBA star.
After hauling in a fade in the end zone, Nittany Lions wide-receiver DaeSean Hamilton popped up immediately, and mimed a gesture Ohio sports fans have come to love and revere.
Hamilton mimed pouring some powder into his hand, then threw the fake powder into the air in triumphant celebration. That isn’t going to go over well in Columbus.

The game has been everything pundits thought it was going to be. Saquon Barkley took the opening kickoff back 97 yards for a touchdown, and Ohio State has been playing catch-up ever since.
They’re doing what they can to hang in the game, but through the first half, the Nittany Lions appear to be the superior side.
A win would be huge for either side. Both are undefeated in the Big Ten East, and a win in a head-to-head matchup would go a long way as the season winds down. The winner of this game will likely meet Wisconsin in the conference championship at the end of the year.
