The Buckeyes enter play #2 in the nation, but sit in an interesting position as they look to take down the Spartans on Saturday.
Michigan State has nothing but pride and the spoiler role to play for here, in what has been a horrendous year for this bunch.
#2 Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes have a lot going through their mind this week in East Lansing.
After #3, #4, and #5 all went down last week, the Buckeyes jumped to #2 in the nation. More times than not, they’d be in the drivers seat for a BCS Playoff spot. However, the situation gets difficult.
They cannot play in the Big Ten Title game unless the Nittany Lions fall to Rutgers or Michigan State. Should that not happen, the Nittany Lions get in the Big 10 Championship with a chance to even jump the Buckeyes.
For now, all Ohio State can do is control their own destiny.
Still, with that on their minds and Michigan next week, this is trap game.
However the good news is Ohio State is certainly in stride. The Buckeyes have obliterated both Nebraska and Maryland over the past two weeks.
Ohio State has put up 62 points in back to back weeks, while holding the opposition to 3 points on both occasions. This is easily the best the Buckeyes have looked all season long and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
The Spartans can unfortunately take pride in what they did to Rutgers last week.
Michigan State has endured just a horrible season, but ended a 7 game losing streak with a 49-0 dominant performance of the Scarlet Knights.
Michigan State will not be participating in bowl season, making this one essentially their National Championship. Cliche, sure, but ruining the Buckeyes season would be a something to remember.
While it’s been a combination of a lot of things for the Spartans, their lack of offensive production is the main thing. The Spartans are putting up only 26 points per game, as they lack any sort of spark.
Michigan State has won 3 of the last 6 against Ohio State, which includes a 3 point win last year in Columbus.
