Saturday, November 10th brings us a huge Big Ten East matchup between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan State Spartans that could have monumental effects on the College Football Playoff. If you’re a fan of UCF, you had better be rooting for the Spartans on Saturday.
Ohio State narrowly escaped a resurgent Nebraska team last week, while the Spartans took care of Maryland on the road 24-3.
#10 Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State looks to be in some serious trouble coming into this Saturday afternoon’s matchup in East Lansing. The Buckeyes gave up 80 points to Purdue and Nebraska combined in their last two games. Those aren’t exactly two of the top teams in the Big Ten.
The Buckeyes have 5 players who are currently injured on defense, all defensive backs, which could be the reason behind their current mishaps on defense, but four of those players are listed as questionable for Saturday. CB Jeffrey Okudah, S Isaiah Pryor, CB Sevyn Banks and CB Cameron Brown. This defense will need all of the help they can get against Michigan State.
If not for a botched on-side kick attempt, Ohio State could be looking at a third loss in a row this week. They gave up 450 yards to the two win Cornhuskers, if they do that on Saturday, the Spartans will destroy them.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans can avenge all three of their losses with a win here on Saturday, and put all doubt (mine included) that they really are the team that the pollsters gave them credit as being for much of the year.
The Spartans have won three out of their last four games, including a win against a Purdue team that beat Ohio State by 29 points. This is either the perfect time to face the Buckeyes, or the worst. If the Spartans play tough defensively, and take away the long ball, they can use their shut down rush defense to try and contain the Buckeyes ground game.
Last week against Maryland, the Spartans gave up only 26 yards on the ground, and 100 total yards overall. Now they won’t do that against Ohio State, but they need to play their best defense of the year if they want to win at home on Saturday.

Take Ohio State to win the game and cover the spread on the road on Saturday, but take the UNDER.
The Spartans don’t put up too many points per game, and I can’t see them scoring more than 30 against the Buckeyes, even with their recent defensive problems.
