CAMP HILL -- Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been put in a tough spot as the honorary chair of this year's Big 33 Classic.
"Being from Ohio and playing in Pennsylvania now, I'm kind of split," said Roethlisberger, who played for Ohio in 2000.
"I'm putting it out there now. I'm not rooting for one team or the other," he joked.
Roethlisberger spoke to the reporters, along with Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien, Temple coach Steve Addazio and Paul Chryst from Pittsburgh, before a special banquet at Christian Life Assembly Church in Cumberland County.
The game is Saturday at Hersheypark Stadium. Ohio has beaten Pennsylvania in the last three games played.
