Michigan State offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic discussed the plan for improving the team’s offensive line.

The offensive line is continuing to make adjustments in each game and those adjustments will continue throughout the season. This includes using younger plays to fill in on the line.

The offensive line has worked on getting younger players on the roster adjusted to playing in games. These adjustments are being used to develop the younger players. Even with a less experienced lineup, the offensive line continues to use a 6-man rotation throughout the game.

This rotation should mix up the amount of experience between the players on the line. There will be more things for the offensive line to work on in the coming weeks. Kapilovic took note of the offensive line’s struggles with being disciplined in the Week 5 loss to Maryland.

Penalties proved to be costly for the Spartans last week. Michigan State’s offensive line committed a total of five penalties. The offense suffered as a result of those penalties to Maryland.

Michigan State quarterback Payton Thorne passed for 227 yards and 1 touchdown in Week 5. He completed 27 of 44 attempted passes. The offensive line will look to minimize the mistakes and increase the protection on Thorne.

Michigan State hosts Ohio State on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.
