The Match-up

THE Ohio State Buckeyes take on the Michigan State Spartans in one of the biggest games of the Big Ten conference schedule. The Buckeyes are still undefeated and poised to be one of the four teams in the College Football Playoffs, but could easily be knocked out and replaced by the Spartans as a representative from the Big Ten if Sparty can prevail on Saturday. In a week the top SEC teams take on cupcake teams, the Big Ten gives us this gem. J.T. Barrett continues as quarterback for the undefeated Buckeyes to attempt to lead them to back to back undefeated and National Champion seasons. On the other hand, Connor Cook hasn't been 100% healthy for most of this season, but the Spartans will need him to play like a Heisman candidate in order for them to succeed. 

The Prediction

Michigan State - 24
Ohio State - 35

Mascot Match-up

The Spartans will face the Buckeyes in the Big Game Series this week. With a helmet for protection, the Spartan gives off a look that might say he could take on a friendly Buckeye, but I'm not fooled by his one and only way to avoid defeat. His confused look tells me he's unsure of himself, and I don't think his kilt is really ideal for battle anyway. My Ohio bias will once again play into this one so I'm giving this win to the Buckeyes. I just can't seem to get past that sweet Brutus smile and that tiny hat he wears!
