Coaches give the edge to OSU over MSU

  Ohio State topped Michigan State in a high-scoring affair last season.

Ohio State will play its biggest game of the season to date when the Buckeyes host Big Ten East rival Michigan State at home on Saturday.

Michigan State has just one loss, and Saturday’s showdown has major College Football Playoff implications. A close game seems like a likely outcome.

Or does it?

ESPN’s Joe Schad talked to three coaches who have squared off against the Buckeyes and Spartans this season, and they don’t think this game will be so close after all.

Talent is one thing, but Ohio State has started off several games sluggish this season. Let’s see if they can buck that trend this weekend against Connor Cook and the Spartans.
