Pennsylvania All-Stars Outscore Ohio Stars In Big 33 Game

Pennsylvania scored 40 unanswered points to snap a three-game losing streak to Ohio in its annual Big 33 Game in Hershey, Pennsylvania Saturday night. The Keystone State's 61-42 win may be the last between the state's because this year's game fell on the same night at Ohio's traditional North-South All-Star Game, and many felt that Ohio was sending its "B Team" because most of the top players chose to stay at home and play in the intra-state game in Columbus.

That controversy aside, but team put on quite a performance in the 49th Big 33 Game that holds the distinction of have a particpant play in every Super Bowl.

Pennsylvania and Ohio All-Stars Square-Off In Big 33 Game

The Big 33 game will be renewed for the 49th time in Hershey tonight. The game, which features the best from Pennsylvania versus the best from Ohio, is one of the best in the nation with a player from the game appearing in every Super Bowl that has ever been played.

Ohio brings a three game win streak into tonight's match-up. It could also be the last between the two states because Big 33 officials moved the game up by about a month to accomodate Division I schools that wanted to enroll players in summer school. That meant tonight's game fell on the same weekend as Ohio's traditional North-South All-Star Game. Many feel this year's Big 33 Ohio squad isn't as deep as a result.

This is the last year of the contract with Ohio, and some are saying if Ohio can't improve its selection process, Big 33 officials will look to Maryland for an opponent.
