ESPN’s College GameDay crew will head to Ohio State on Saturday, when the undefeated defending national champs host Michigan State in a game that will help determine the Big Ten’s East Division winner. The game is at 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC).
This is Ohio State’s first opponent ranked in the College Football Playoff top 25. Michigan State, which already lost to Nebraska, can still play for the Big Ten title if it wins out because it would own head-to-head wins over Michigan and Ohio State. If the Spartans lose, though, they’re out of the playoff conversation. Michigan State is coming off a 24-7 win over Maryland, in which quarterback Connor Cook suffered a shoulder injury, but he is expected to play against the Buckeyes.
After its win over Illinois, Ohio State has now won 23 in a row, the longest active streak in the nation, and is one win from tying the school record of 24 set by the 2012 and 2013 Ohio State teams. Ohio State has also won a Big Ten-record 30 straight conference games, which broke the conference record of 29 consecutive ACC wins by Florida State from 1992-95.
