Spartans And Buckeyes In Columbus

The No. 9 Spartans and the No. 3 Buckeyes are getting ready for a Top-10 Clash in Ohio Stadium on Saturday. It is a 3:30 p.m. kick and will be televised nationally on ABC. It marks MSU’s first appearance in Columbus since a 10-7 victory over the Buckeyes on Oct. 1, 2011. The Spartans are 9-1 overall, equaling the best 10-game start under MSU head coach Mark Dantonio, following their 24-7 victory over Maryland last Saturday in Spartan Stadium. At 5-1 in the Big Ten East standings, the Spartans are looking to take down first-place Ohio State, who is 6-0 in league play and 10-0 overall after its 28-3 win at Illinois.
