Ohio State-Michigan State 2014 to be a night game

The Buckeyes and Spartans will battle in East Lansing in November underneath the stars.

As widely speculated for sometime, Ohio State's regular season game of the year against Michigan State in East Lansing Nov. 8 will in fact be a night game. This makes a record five night games for the Buckeyes in a single season and their third in a row. The game will be broadcast on ABC.

At home, the Buckeyes will host Virginia Tech, Cincinnati, Penn State, and Illinois, but none will likely garner the same kind of implications of what could prove to be a de facto Big Ten East division championship. Last December, the Buckeyes memorably lost the Big Ten Championship Game to the Spartans, 34-24.

Just about all the experts have either the Spartans or Buckeyes pegged to not just win the division, but win the Big Ten title game. If Braxton Miller can stay healthy and Chris Ash can help what was one of the worst Ohio State secondaries in resent memory regain their form, OSU will be as well positioned as anyone to knock off the defending Big Ten champs.
