OHIO ST: There's a cloud over the Ohio State program with head coach Urban Meyer under fire, but the Buckeyes are still the most talented team in the Big Ten. Quarterback Dwayne Haskins hasn't played much, but he's expected to be a legitimate Heisman contender. At wideout, Parris Campbell is the guy to watch'he turns into an Olympic sprinter in the open field. And in the backfield, J.K. Dobbins is the best running back in the division. Defensively, the Buckeyes are led by DE Nick Bosa. Like his brother Joey, Bosa figures to be an early NFL Draft pick. His presence alone almost makes the Buckeyes a force on D. This is the best team in the conference on paper.'
MICHIGAN ST: This program has quietly been one of the best in the country since 2010, winning 10 or more games in six of the past eight seasons. This year, quarterback Brian Lewerke is back under center for the Spartans. Lewerke is a solid passer from the pocket, but he also has the speed to make plays with his legs. That keeps defenses off balance, and it also creates more room for running back LJ Scott to work with. It's highly likely that Scott turns in a career year for Michigan State, which returns nine total starters on offense. As for the Spartans defense, this should be an elite run-stuffing group up front. But if MSU is going to contend for the conference title, then it will need to do a better job of getting after the quarterback.
No. 18 Michigan State aims to knock off No. 10 Ohio State

Michigan State doesn't have a quarterback controversy entering its Big Ten East Division showdown with Ohio State on Saturday.

Coach Mark Dantonio squashed all that talk during his weekly press conference, declaring Brian Lewerke his No. 1 guy. Backup Rocky Lombardi led the team to victory over Purdue two weeks ago when Lewerke sat out with a shoulder injury, but Lewerke was back behind center in the team's 24-3 win at Maryland.

"Brian is our starting quarterback, I think you can go with that," Dantonio said. "That's the foundation that he's built here. I didn't see any velocity issues relative to his arm strength. If he was hurt, he would not be playing."

No. 18 Michigan State (6-3, 4-2 Big Ten) is two games behind Michigan in the division standings but could still wind up in the Rose Bowl if it wins out. First, it would have to knock off No. 10 Ohio State (8-1, 5-1), which hasn't lost at Spartan Stadium since 1999.

"This is a strange football season. A lot of people have lost. There's a lot of two-loss teams and quite a few three-loss teams right now," Dantonio said. "If you can't win the Big Ten Championship -- I guess mathematically, there's still opportunity there -- but I think the next thing is there, can you go to a Big Six Bowl? Can you be 9-3? Well, you've got to win this one if you're going to do that."

The Spartans have won three of the last seven meetings, including the 2013 Big Ten championship game. The Buckeyes crushed the Spartans 48-3 last season in Columbus after getting upset the previous two times Michigan State visited the state.

Ohio State has been dominant in East Lansing, collecting victories in its last six journeys to Spartan Stadium. The Buckeyes pulled out a 17-16 squeaker there in 2016.

The Buckeyes need to win out to remain in contention for a College Football Playoff berth. They won't have a chance if they continue to play like they have the past two weeks.

After getting stunned by unranked Purdue 49-20, they struggled past a rebuilding Nebraska program at home 36-31.

"They are still 8-1. Everybody is acting like, 'poor Ohio State.' They are still 8-1 and ranked in the Top 10," Dantonio said. "They are pretty good and they have got some playmakers up front."

The Buckeyes trailed at halftime and allowed 450 total yards to the Cornhuskers. Safety Isaiah Pryor and cornerback Jeffrey Okudah missed the game with undisclosed ailments.

"On defense, right now it's the confidence factor," coach Urban Meyer said. "You've got three starters out of the secondary again (last) Saturday. I think we're going to have them all healthy (this week). It's been like that. It's been a deck of cards shuffling in and out of the back end of our defense."

One of the positives from the game was the production of running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber. Dobbins rushed for 163 yards on 23 carries and three touchdowns. Weber gained 91 yards in nine carries.

Finding creases will be much more difficult against a Spartans rushing defense that ranks No. 1 in the nation. Michigan State is allowing just 71.7 rushing yards per game.

"That's what we're working on right now," Meyer said of trying to sustain the success his team had running the ball. "Obviously, you're facing the number one rush defense in the country coming up this next week. But our offensive line played very well and our backs, that was their best pad level game as far as dropping their pads and getting through those holes."

Dobbins, a sophomore, rushed for 124 yards and also caught a touchdown pass against the Spartans last season. Weber, a junior, erupted for 162 yards on just nine carries and two touchdowns in the same game.

The Spartans will also have their hands full with sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins, who has thrown 32 touchdown passes and surpassed 3,000 yards this season against Nebraska.
