Michigan State could be in trouble in this game. The Spartans have to take to the road to face the Buckeyes in this game and that could really spell disaster for the Spartans as they have been a very slow starting team. What else does not help the Spartans is they have not looked like a dominating team either on the year and one that could control the games.
The Spartans have managed to score at a clip of 31.4 points a game. The offense has thrown the ball for 269 yards a game this year, but the team has run the ball for a total of 144.6 yards a game this season. When it comes to the defense the Spartans have given up only 15 points a game this year, but have allowed only 198 yards a game in the air and 55.8 yards a game on the ground.
The Buckeyes have yet to be challenged on the year so far and it will show in this game here. The Buckeyes have been able to really come into every game and control the opponents and even Nebraska who was projected to give the Buckeyes a challenge in their last outing was completely ran over as the Buckeyes are playing with a tremendous chip on their shoulder from the snub they had last year.
When it comes to scoring the Buckeyes seem to do it at will with 52.4 points a game being scored. The offense has managed to get a total of 254 yards a game in the air, but have ran the ball for an amazing 281.6 yards a game.
