While Mark Dantonio made this series competitive during his time as MSU’s head coach, the Buckeyes have won 7 straight and 6 straight in convincing fashion. Last season, Ohio State rolled to a 49-20 win in East Lansing.
The matchup does not set up favorably for the Spartans who continue to move forward under interim coach Harlon Barnett. While Michigan State did beat Nebraska last week, the team has struggled to find consistency on either side of the ball.
As for Ohio State, the defense of the Buckeyes could feast at home against an overmatch MSU offense with a pair of inexperienced QBs leading that group. The Ohio State offense will also get a shot to get on track early in the matchup.
