OSU at Michigan State

October 18


The relationship between Mark Dantonio and Jim Tressel will always be intriguing.  The Spartan program is taking a turn for the better and 2008 should be an exceptional year.  Ohio State nearly gave the game away last year as the Spartans scored twice on defense.  With Homecoming and the Penn State Nittany Lions on the slate for the following week, the Buckeyes will have to keep their minds on the game at hand or they could hit a speed bump in the road to the National Championship.

    The Spartans return their two best players on offense in quarterback Brian Hoyer and running back Javon Ringer.  Hoyer and Ringer should keep Michigan State in games until the defense, which has been decimated by attrition, comes together as a unit.  The Ohio State offense should feast on the lack of experience on the defensive side while holding the Spartan offensive attack in check.


    The Spartans are close but still need some seasoning.  Dantonio has the team pointed in the right direction but the lack of experience will put Ohio State on top.  Look for a big day from Beanie Wells and the OSU ground game as the offensive line wears down a smaller defensive line.
