Michigan State Spartans vs. Ohio State Buckeyes, 10/5/19 Predictions & Odds

Getty Images

Sure, the Spartans seem to have more question marks than the Buckeyes heading into this one, but the fact that no one is giving Michigan State a shot is reason enough to pull off the unthinkable.

On Saturday night, two of the nation's top-10 defenses face off in a battle of ranked opponents.

Fields finished 17 for 25 for 206 yards and threw an interception for the first time in his first 175 pass attempts as a Buckeye. The Buckeyes are giving up just 8.6 points and 224.2 yards per game on defense.

Fuller's 86-yard interception return touchdown was called back for a questionable blindside block call against Browning.

Ohio State, Wisconsin and Penn State - all in a row, the first two on the road.

Ohio State could not get anything going in its first four drives against Michigan State.

With a wealth of new players, James predicted it will take some time for the Lakers to develop chemistry and camaraderie. Vogel is also toying with various complementary pieces to fill out the starting lineup next to them.

While the Spartans are heralded more for their defense, it has actually been their passing game that has gotten some tremendous performances this season.

Fields, a Georgia Transfer in his first season at Ohio State, was contained in the first quarter by the Spartans before making big plays. Despite injuries to key offensive linemen and starting quarterback Davis Mills (293 yards, one touchdown), David Shaw's group still kept ticking in one of their most impressive games of the season when they were pretty much backed into a corner at 2-3 coming into the weekend. Elijah Collins has emerged as the team's feature back with 413 rushing yards and three touchdowns, while Darrell Stewart Jr. has become the top receiver with 35 catches for 556 yards and three touchdowns.

Kenny Willekes and Raequan Williams each have 3.5 sacks and will be looking to get some kind of pressure on Fields of OSU. That was exactly was Ryan Day and his team needed. UCF, a New Year's Six participant each of the past two seasons, went to Cincinnati and dropped their second game of the season in a 27-24 disappointment against the Bearcats.

"The defensive staff as a whole with coach Mattison and coach Jeff Hafley, the co-defensive coordinators have really changed the defense around since a year ago", he said.

The spread for this game favors the Buckeyes by a whopping 20 points (OSU -20), while the over/under is set at 49. We had him in the backfield a number of times and he extended plays. Ohio State brings a 5-and-0 overall and 2-and-0 conference record into tomorrow's game. I like the Spartans with the points.
