The biggest game in the conference is scheduled for Saturday afternoon. Even though the Spartans have a loss it still looks like a winner take all battle.
All Ohio State has to do is keep winning for a chance to defend their title with a return to the playoffs.
It has been expected all season long that this would be the battle that decides the conference (no offense Iowa) and here we are. Unless I am missing something about tiebreakers the winner of this should be in the B10 title game.
Even though the Spartans have been good, and lucky, this season, it appears heading in that they might not be as close to the Buckeyes as we think. No aspect of this team has been dominating like it has in the past.
The best thing the Spartans have going for them this season is Connor Cook. If you have a senior, NFL ready quarterback these are exactly the situations in which they have to stand up.
If he is one of the best players on the field they will be in this one.
The Spartans do not have to be perfect on Saturday but they have to avoid the big mistakes to stay in it.
They haven’t always looked like a defending champion but the Buckeyes are poised to return to the playoffs with just a couple of regular season games to go. They are big ones though with State this week and Big Blue the next.
When it comes to talent there is no doubt they are one of the most talented teams out there. Sometimes they have been a little sluggish though. No reason for it, just is. See Northern Illinois.
This is their first really big game of the year and they should be up for it.
In a big game like this look for the Buckeyes to establish the ground game with Ezekiel Elliott and a strong offensive line. Last year he and J.T. Barrett really did a number on an MSU group that was better defensively a year ago. If they get this going they are almost unstoppable.
Ohio State has won all of their games this season and has covered in three of the last four. They might finally be playing up to expectations.
