STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State safety Tony Davis missed Saturday's game against No. 1 Ohio State after having his appendix removed Friday.

Davis, who had started the season's first eight games, is expected to sit out two to four weeks, team spokesman Jeff Nelson said Saturday.

Mark Rubin started in Davis' place at safety for the 25th-ranked Nittany Lions (No. 24 AP).
