Michigan State Spartans vs Ohio State Buckeyes.

Need I say more?

Yet again, these two Big Ten Rivals will clash with everything on the line for both squads, including a clear path to the Big Ten Championship for the winner.

Today’s game is the 46th meeting between Michigan State and Ohio State and for the sixth time in the last eight matchups, both teams enter the contest ranked in the AP Top 25.

Ohio State is ranked 11th, while Michigan State checks in at 13th. The Buckeyes lead the all-time series 30-15, including a 14-9 record in games played in Columbus.

However, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio is 3-5 during his tenure against Ohio State (2-1 in Columbus). The Spartans are also looking for their third straight win in Ohio Stadium (won 10-7 in 2011 and 17-14 in 2015).

The game will be nationally televised on FOX beginning at noon.

Let’s go Spartans!
