In 2020, Ohio State was 4-0 and fourth in the rankings as it headed into its matchup with Michigan State. The Buckeyes are 5-0, and fourth in the rankings as they head into their matchup with Michigan State this Saturday.

One thing that has changed is the Buckeyes will have head coach Ryan Day on the field. In 2020, Day was sidelined due to the coronavirus and was unable to coach. He recently talked about missing that game, saying it was “surreal” to watch the Buckeyes play on television instead of in person.

Ohio State has a lot to play for this Saturday, and march into East Lasing as heavy 25.5 favorites. Ohio State has won the last 8 matchups and are 15-3 in the last 18 contests. Michigan State’s last win over Ohio State at home was in 1999. The Spartans have opened this season 2-3, with losses at Washington, Minnesota, and Maryland.
