The Buckeyes had been just 2-5 against the Spartans late in seasons when they were in championship contention. They had not won under this weekend's circumstances in East Lansing, ever.
The top-ranked 1974 Buckeyes couldn't do it. The 1998 Buckeyes beat everyone else they faced that season by double digits, and they couldn't do it. The 2013 Buckeyes
didn't give the ball to Hyde ugh why whyyyyyy couldn't do it either, and neither could last season's defending national champions.
But the 2016 Buckeyes did it, however inelegant the victory may have seemed. Just win, baby. Here's to a new streak against those guys.
