Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

Urban Meyer said running the ball against Michigan State was "a mandate this week."

Weber, Ohio State run all over Michigan State (0:45)

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)

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

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?

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.

Dan Murphy ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
