11:00 AM PT- Urban Meyer says Ohio State is looking into legal action following McMurphy's story on Trevon Grimes

This is a big game in the Big Ten East. "I'm curious. But you know previous year they had their way so we're going to have to play very, very well, have to know what they do and be on top of our A-game". The running game has to develop, yet in a game where they weren't forced to pass to catch-up, they only ran the ball 18 times. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins threw 39 times for 227 yards and a touchdown and that's probably the best you can hold a player who has the arm talent of Haskins. In many ways this year's Buckeyes are more reminiscent of the 2013 team that fell short of expectations than the 2014 national championship team. MSU lead the game in rushing until the middle of the second quarter with a total of 8 yards. Michigan State had 274 yards overall - 220 passing and 54 rushing.

Obviously, any improvement by the Buckeyes on the defensive side of the ball is a welcome sign for Ohio State after what's been an uneven season so far.

Ohio State, which is No. 10 in this week's College Football Playoff rankings, was No. 14 at the same time in those rankings in 2014. "Other than that, we haven't had a great push out front".

"First of all, it's a product of Ohio State", Meyer said.

The Spartans' starting quarterback Brian Lewerke, who has tried to play through a shoulder injury the last two weeks, was 11 of 28 for 128 yards.

Ohio State led 7-6 heading into the seven half and had the ball in Michigan State territory in seven of eight possessions. The Buckeyes limited the Spartans to 143 total yards and without a third-down conversion (0 for 8) in the first half. Spartans coach Mark Dantonio tried to put some of the uncertainty to rest this week. "This was big momentum for us".

"When we do our job tilting the field", Chrisman said, "it makes it harder on them". "We called two or three on the day and they didn't work, but with that being said I think the major turning point of the game was that after the fumble happened, ". Michigan State has lost six straight home games in this series.

On the fourth of those possessions, the Spartans had to punt from their own end zone. The Buckeyes are 24-3 in conference road games under coach Urban Meyer. "Offense just looks not good at all". "We just didn't connect on it". I felt like we covered well and tackled well. Dre'Mont Jones recovered the fumble for the Buckeyes in the end zone, giving Ohio State a 16-6 advantage.

On the Spartans' very next drive, Lombardi turned the ball over again on a designed option toss meant for freshman running back Ladarius Jefferson. "Six times we kept them inside the 20, five inside the 6-yard line". Nine of the 13 drives the two teams combined for in the first half ended with punts, two ended with missed field goals, one resulted in a touchdown and another produced a field goal.

In the first quarter, you might have wondered if Chrisman would be asked about his ignominious start to the game.

Scott will enter the 2019 season with 586 carries for 2,771 yards (4.7 per carry) and 25 touchdowns.
