Tale of the tape
College Football Week 5: #14 Ohio State At #20 Michigan State
|The Buckeyes are ineligible for the Big Ten title game, but most believe Urban Meyer has the best team in the Leaders Division. Ohio State is 4-0 but has been inconsistent.||Coaching||Mark Dantonio’s team is 3-1 but hasn’t looked nearly as good as many expected when they predicted the Spartans to win the Big Ten Legends Division.|
|Folks are starting to throw Braxton Miller’s name into the Heisman discussion. He’s got nearly 1,200 yards of offense and 14 total touchdowns. This will be the best defense he’s faced so far this season.||Offense||After getting stymied by Notre Dame, Michigan State had all of six points through most of three quarters against Eastern Michigan. The Spartans have no confidence in their passing game so they handed to Le’Veon Bell 36 times last Saturday (he did gain 253 yards).|
|The Buckeyes are only allowing 17 points per game and have forced nine turnovers. Meyer’s coaching background is on the offensive side, but his Florida teams always had plenty of talent and speed on the defensive side.||Defense||The Spartans field the sixth-best defense in the country as far as yards allowed, though the offenses they have faced aren’t exactly explosive.|
|The Buckeyes’ special teams have been really bad outside of kicker Drew Basil, who has made his only field goal attempt after a strong 2011.||Special Teams||The Spartans have been solid but not spectacular on special teams. They’ve relied on their punter a bit too much the last two weeks.|
We'll just call it a tie
