FPI: Spartans heavy favorites at home

Maryland has lost 18 straight conference games against AP-ranked opponents, including 12 straight since joining the Big Ten in 2014. The Terrapins beat Michigan State last season and are seeking back-to-back wins against the Spartans for the first time ever.

No. 11 Ohio State rebounds, routs No. 13 Michigan St 48-3

J.T. Barrett threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more, and Mike Weber rushed for 162 yards and a pair of scores as No. 11 Ohio State bounced back from a deflating loss last week to rout No. 13 Michigan State 48-3 on Saturday.

Buckeyes cruising with 48-yard TD (0:25)

Everything is working for the Buckeyes this afternoon, making it hard to imagine this is the same team that gave up 55 points in Iowa a week ago. Are there enough style points out there to get Ohio State back into the College Football Playoff hunt?

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

J.T. Barrett's first-quarter touchdown run pushed him into second place for total yards in Big Ten history. With 11,804 yards in his career, Barrett is behind only Drew Brees(12,692) for the league's record.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

Ohio State's secondary has done a nice job of holding red-hot Spartan QB Brian Lewerke at bay in the first quarter. Denzel Ward and Damon Arnette both have broken up passes in the early going.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

Ohio State coaches said all week that getting the ball to JK Dobbins would be a priority. The Buckeyes looked his way on four of their first five plays before Mike Weber finished the opening drive with a big run.

Ohio State center Billy Price made his 51st consecutive start today. That passes former Buckeye and current Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell for a program record.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

Michigan State QB Brian Lewerke has thrown more than 100 passes in his last two games (good for 845 total yards). He says he's not worried about any arm weariness today. No. 12 Spartans are in all white for their visit with No. 13 Ohio State.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

No sign of Ohio State linebackers Jerome Baker or Dante Booker on the field as the Buckeyes start to get loose for today's noon kickoff against Michigan State. Multiple outlets have reported that they will miss today's game.

FPI gives huge edge to Ohio State

Even though ESPN's FPI likes the Buckeyes to win at home, the road team has won the last six meetings between these teams played at campus sites (excluding the 2013 Big Ten Championship Game). Ohio State won last season in East Lansing, but Michigan State won its last two trips to Columbus in 2011 and 2015. The only team in the last two decades to win three straight road games against the Buckeyes was Wisconsin from 1999-04.
