They're not in the same Big Ten division so they do not meet every year. But when Ohio State visits Michigan State in football it's always a big deal. And Saturday's match is on ABC at 3:30pm and ESPN's Game Day is in town to tell the world about it.
The weather looks good-- and so it will be a festive atmosphere to be sure. The Buckeyes are playing their first road game for first year head coach Urban Meyer. Ohio State wants to avenge a 10-7 loss to MSU in Columbus a year ago. Mark Dantonio's MSU team is a three point favorite but the Spartans' confidence has to be in question given the shaky 23-7 win over Eastern Michigan last Saturday. I think if MSU loses this game a tough season lies ahead. If the Spartans win they'll be in the thick of the Rose Bowl race the rest of the way. Stay tuned.
