NCAA Football: Michigan State at Michigan Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

You’d be hard pressed to find a more even series in the last half decade of college football than Ohio State-Michigan State.

Since 2011, the teams have played six times, each winning three games, with the Spartans holding a narrow 130-128 edge in total points. Regardless of the quality of Mark Dantonio’s squad, one thing is certain each year: They’re going play Ohio State closer than any other team in the Big Ten. Don’t expect that to change on Saturday.

On this episode of The Hangout in the Holy Land, Matt Brown and Colton Denning agonize over Saturday’s game, and talk about why Michigan State reminds them of a trip to the dentist, plus many other topics, including:

  • Whether this is the first true “make or break” game of the Urban Meyer era.
  • Praying Ohio State doesn’t give up a touchdown in the the first 10 seconds of game time for the third week in a row.
  • Previewing the huge slate of Week 11 games around college football, and more!

Matt also shares a great story about a random encounter he had with another Ohio State fan, and drops some good news about his upcoming book signings in Ohio and New York City
