Friday Night Fights: Michigan State

By 11W Staff on November 9, 2018 at 6:15 pm

Welcome to the 11th installment of Friday Night Fights, 2018.

This series is your opportunity to prove how clairvoyant you are regarding Ohio State's upcoming football fortunes. It also gauges how good or bad your #takes are, should you choose to defend them in the comments.

Ohio State heads back to East Lansing, where it has not lost in 19 years. Let's take a look back at the famed Spartans of that era from the back half of the 1990s:

Let's check the results from last week's Fights and the best #takes from the week:

noon blackout
Large swaths of empty red seats and a beautiful sunny day did not approach the levels of hype required to justify a gimmick.
big plays
The Buckeyes allowed two, but they also allowed a 24-yarder and got bailed out on another one by penalty flag.
It was abundantly clear the Buckeyes put a lot of work into not being one-dimensional during their week off.
postgame mood
If you had bet the farm against Ohio State covering the spread this season, you'd have several farms by now.
Michigan improves with every passing week, while Ohio State continues to flatline or regress. 

There were no strong #takes from last week worthy of being shared here, in part because nearly everyone was betting on the traditional Post-Loss Bounce that Urban Meyer's teams have typically produced. We don't apologize. You should apologize.

Onto this week's Fights:
