The Ohio State Buckeyes are coming off the worst loss of Urban Meyer’s career, but have a chance to redeem themselves against an always-tough Michigan State squad in Columbus. It is not often that Meyer loses two games in a row, though the two touchdowns the Buckeyes are favored by seems somewhat wishful.
Mark Dantonio and the Spartans have been the Achilles to Meyer’s squad. Michigan State is 2-3 against the Buckeyes under Meyer’s regime--the best record of any conference foe. They come to Columbus having defeated Penn State in a fashion not quote as dramatic as the Buckeyes’ win the week prior.
While Brian Lewerke and Michigan State’s offense has been turning heads lately, the heart of the Spartans remains their staunch defense. The unit is allowing a Big Ten-best 87 yards rushing per game. This week, they will have their hands full with J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber, who Meyer will need to rush more than he did last week against the Hawkeyes.
