Buckeyes’ Fans Hope Magic Continues In Big Ten Championship Game

Posted by Blake Frazier on 2/4/2014 5:40:20 AM

No college football fans had a better time last Saturday than those cheering for the Ohio State Buckeyes. First, they watched their team pull through with a 42-41 win over the Michigan Spartans in an online sports betting contest that came down to a missed two-point conversion for their rivals in the game’s final minutes. Then, they watched Auburn upset top-ranked Alabama in one of the most incredible endings in the history of sports, opening the door for them to move up to No. 2 in the national rankings. Ohio State is in control of its BCS Championship game hopes with the chance to clinch its spot with a win over the Michigan State Spartans in this year’s Big Ten Championship game, as they look to stay undefeated under head coach Urban Meyer’s reign.

Big Ten Championship Game

College Football Sports Betting Line: Ohio State - 6

Michigan State bounced back strong following a close loss to Notre Dame in late September, and they haven’t lost since with eight-straight wins to book their spot in the Big Ten Championship game. The Spartans have benefited from a relatively easy schedule, but their defense has held its own and they certainly deserve this opportunity.

The Buckeyes’ offense has been nearly unstoppable this season, particularly on the ground where they have averaged over 320 rushing yards per game this season. Meyer called senior running back Carlos Hyde the best running back in the country as far as he is considered, and the numbers certainly back it up as he has accumulated 1,290 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns to pace the nation’s second-ranked running game. Senior quarterback Braxton Miller has also been a star with 1,759 passing yards and an additional 891 on the ground, with 35 total touchdowns. The Ohio State defense struggled at times in last week’s win over Michigan, and it’s on the offense to be the difference again this week.

That vaunted Buckeyes’ rushing attack will go up against a defense that ranks fourth in the entire country with an average of just 11.8 points per game allowed, and they have been particularly good when it comes to defending the run. This will obviously be the toughest offense that Michigan State will have gone up against this season, so it will be interesting to see how they fare. The Spartans aren’t built to overcome poor defensive play, although junior Jeremy Langford has been a star all season. Langford has rushed for 1,210 yards and 16 touchdowns to pace the Michigan State offense, and he will asked to be the difference maker again on offense this week with all eyes on him.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

This will undoubtedly be the toughest test of the year for both teams, as they compete for the right to call themselves Big Ten champions and fulfill their BCS goals. Ohio State has come through with some close wins this year, but the Michigan offense exposed the holes in their defense and now the Spartans will have a chance to do the same. The Buckeyes’ offense could struggle to move the ball at the pace they have become accustomed to when they go up against this tough Michigan State defense, so look for the Spartans to at least keep this one close as an online betting contest they could very well win outright.
