The game between Ohio State and Michigan State has determined a lot over the past two season.

In 2014, Ohio State’s win in East Lansing gave the Buckeyes the edge in the B1G East, leading to an eventual conference championship and national title. Last season, a game-winning field goal from MSU’s┬áMichael Geiger aided the Spartans in a B1G title chase and landed them a berth in the College Football Playoff.

Though the Spartans come in at 3-7 with not much on the line, Urban Meyer isn’t overlooking the division foe.

Saturday means a lot for Ohio State, who just earned the No. 2 spot in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. With one loss already on their record, any slip up would knock the Buckeyes out of the B1G race and would like halt any hopes of a second national title in three seasons.

For what it’s worth, the road team in this series has won each of the last five meetings.

Meyer probably isn’t into superstitions, either, but he’ll also have that on his side as the Buckeyes travel to East Lansing.
