Fields, Dobbins lead No. 4 Ohio St over No. 25 Michigan St

Share

The Buckeyes were first able to break through the Michigan State defense when Justin Fields rolled to the right and found a wide-open Binjimen Victor, who finished most of the 60-yard touchdown with his legs, to give the Buckeyes a 10-0 advantage. In his first full year at the helm, Ryan Day is living every coach's dream, a flawless start with a team that looks like it will not be slowed down any time soon. Those are the haymakers that land most, and Day said the Dobbins' run hit hardest.

Despite being held to a trio of three-and-outs and just two first downs in the first quarter, the Buckeyes had a 3-0 lead after the opening 15 minutes. This kept the Spartan's defense on the field for far too long. "Just going over it a lot of times in practice, I think that helped execute it in the game".

"They've got to play with a cup on their shoulder to challenge Ohio State and try to get Justin Fields off balance".

The second quarter has been kind to the Buckeyes the entire year. That is the definition of a big-play offense, but it is still set up by the running game that piled up 323 yards in the final three quarters.

Ohio State's offense is one of the best in the nation, scoring 52.4 points per game, so if the Spartans allowed the Hoosiers to score so many points I can't imagine what the Buckeyes are about to do.

"Blown coverage", Dantonio said. The offense strung together some chunk plays at times but couldn't find the end zone as the Ohio State defense bore down. The Spartans got absolutely trounced by the Buckeyes 34-10.

Dobbins ran the ball 24 times, averaged over 7 yards per carry and had an electrifying 67-yard breakaway for a touchdown late in the first half. Consider that No. 25 Michigan State prevailed in a 40-31 shootout last week with in, a team the Buckeyes routed easily 51-10 in week three.

It seemed impossible that anyone could top Dwayne Haskins' record-setting turn as Ohio State quarterback a year ago, but Justin Fields is working on it.

"Somebody said he got a little slower when he went to 215 (pounds)". This team might be the best Dantonio has seen in years. Michigan State's defense is anchored by Kenny Willekes, who had a season-high 12 tackles against Indiana.

Michigan State immediately answered that touchdown drive with a 5-play, 75-yard drive of their own, which ended with a 20-yard Darrell Stewart touchdown reception from Lewerke to make it 10-7. By then, it was already over.

After a rough couple of weeks, we've brought ourselves back to even for picks against the spread.
