Ohio State is scheduled to face Michigan State next Saturday in East Lansing. While there are certainly some obstacles to overcome this week, Gene Smith has made it clear that the focus is on trying to give the team a chance to compete.
Mel Tucker's Spartans are fresh off an upset win against a Northwestern team that was previously unbeaten on the season. Still, Michigan State will have its hands full next week with the Buckeyes coming to town. Per Circa Sports, Ohio State has opened as a 24-point road favorite for Saturday's matchup.
