The game of this decade at Beaver Stadium and past decades?

What has been the game of this decade at Beaver Stadium and the last five decades? The game to some could mean the most competitive game between high quality opponents or perhaps the most memorable game it all depends on your interpretation of the question. As fans, we tend to only think of Penn State victories but that doesn't necessarily mean a game wasn't great or memorable if it resulted in a loss.

Off the top of my head these would be my picks:

'10s - Ohio State 2016 with runner-up 2013 Michigan the 4 OT game.

'00s - Ohio State 2005, Penn State is back! Runner-up 2001 vs. Ohio State, Joe's Win #324

'90s - This one I'm not sure of. 1995 Ohio State was a heck of a game, but a loss. 1999 Michigan also was a heck of a game but also a loss. 1997 Ohio State and 1993 USC come to mind. The 1994 game against Ohio State was very memorable but hardly competitive.

'80s - 1982 Nebraska with runner-up 1982 Pitt that ensured we'd be no lower than #2 going to the Sugar Bowl.

'70s - 1978 Pitt also clinched us going to the Sugar Bowl as the #1 team in the country. Runner-up 1973 N.C. State

94 Illinios game for the 90s - best comeback in PSU history. The 1999 Miami game is a close 2nd but that season turned into a disaster so I can't pick that.
Is it football season yet?
