Podcast: Michigan State preview

As long as the Buckeyes don’t go conservative — hello 2015, 2016, and 2018 — they should be fine against the Spartans.

Ohio State’s offense has been awesome this season, but how’s it going to look this week against one of the best defenses in the country? Colton breaks down the key matchups against Michigan State, wonders whether Ryan Day will play conservative, why Garrett Wilson might have a big game, and more.

The No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes got past what was supposed to be their defense’s first real test when they traveled to Lincoln, Neb., and now the offense will take on one of the top defenses in the country in Mark Dantonio’s Spartans.

Justin Fields hasn’t yet thrown an interception, but will be up against a defensive line that will put him into more uncomfortable situations than he’s had to deal with so far this season as Ohio State’s starter.

The No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes will host the Michigan State Spartans on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m. ET at Ohio Stadium. The game will be broadcast on ABC, and Colton will have his recap episode of Hangout in the Holy Land in the hours following the game.
