Urban Meyer and the undefeated Buckeyes face their toughest competition of the season on Saturday when they battle with the Spartans of Michigan State. With so much excitement surrounding the game, Michigan State and Ohio State fans aren't the ones looking forward to see which team comes out on top, so are top prospects from across the country.
Land-Grant Holy Land caught up with the following recruits, and had them break down their thoughts on Saturday's game.
Thoughts: "I am looking forward to seeing a old fashion hard fought Big 10 game. I think OSU needs to get their playmakers more touches on the offensive side of the ball to pull out a W."
Prediction: Ohio State, 42-28
Thoughts: "This game is huge obviously, but being an Ohio State fan my entire life and rooting for them I have been trying my best to get rid of that and be all with MSU. I believe this game will see what MSU is all about and how tough they are because OSU is still at the top of the food chain. MSU needs to create turnovers defensively and slow the game down offensively I believe."
Prediction: Michigan State, 31-24
Thoughts: "I'm excited just to get on campus and see what it's like first hand."
Prediction: Ohio State, 35-10
Thoughts: "I pretty much just expect a hard fought game, and let the better team win. It's going to come down to who wants it more. It should be a good one."
Prediction: "I don't have a prediction, but I do think it's going to be a dog fight."
Thoughts: "I am very excited to attend this big time matchup and watch Ohio State dominate this Saturday. I am also excited to see how the linebackers of Ohio State play against this Michigan State offense that is typically more run oriented and play within the box. I feel OSU will be prepared and win this game."
Prediction: Ohio State, 31-7
Thoughts: "I'm excited to see Ohio State go up against a good offense and see what they can do."
Prediction: Ohio State, 24-21
Thoughts: "I want to see how both lines play and which quarterback is going to play better and how the wild Ohio State fans could effect Michigan State."
Prediction: Ohio State, 35-21
Thoughts: "This game is tough to call. I'm a little disappointed that I won't be able to make it to the game. I have a game at the same time."
Prediction: No prediction
Thoughts: "It's a great coach vs a great coach. To be honest I want to see who outsmarts the other."
Prediction: Ohio State, 28-24
