Buckeye Leafs for Michigan State game

Ohio State football coach Ryan Day postgame interview

Buckeye Leafs for Michigan State game

They're led by All-American and Heisman Trophy candidate Jonathan Taylor, who is second in the country in rushing at 149.0 yards per game, which has been key in Wisconsin owning the nation's best time of possession.

"They're a really good team - it's hard to get points on them", said Spartans quarterback Brian Lewerke, who was 20 for 38 for 218 yards, a touchdown and an interception. When you're playing against a team like Michigan State, things like that are going to happen.

With Urban Meyer out, Ryan Day has come in as head coach and the Buckeyes haven't missed a beat.

Fields threw two touchdown passes and plunged in for another score as the Buckeyes overcame an inauspicious start to roll to a 34-10 win. Fields connected with Binjimen Victor on a 60-yard pass to make it 10-0. He topped 100 yards rushing in each of the first five games and the toughest time he had gaining ground came when he finished with 119 yards on 26 carries in a 24-15 win against Northwestern on September 28. Stewart led the Spartans with six receptions for 68 yards.

Ohio State: The Spartans pushed Fields way out of his comfort zone and the Ohio State defense played well, surrendering just 67 rushing yards.

The term "toughest test yet" may be a cliche, but it holds true for Saturday's matchup between Michigan State and Ohio State. "I think that's where it's got to start". Third down was really loud and a couple of drives there in the third quarter I thought the crowd really played into it. The redshirt junior and three-year starter opened the season as the program's all-time leader in career field goal percentage and made his first seven attempts in the first two games. "The crowd was awesome all night and I really appreciate Buckeye Nation and their support".

Ohio State has jumped the Sooners in the Amway Coaches Poll powered by USA TODAY Sports to the No. 4 spot following Week 6, as the Buckeyes took down No. 23 Michigan State and Oklahoma defeated Kansas, both by a large margin.
