Buckeyes Travel to East Lansing
Heading into week 6 of the college football season, the Ohio State Buckeyes have their first road test as they face the Michigan State Spartans. This is the 51st meeting between these two teams. The game will be broadcasted on ABC at 4 p.m. this Saturday. Coming into this game, the Spartans have lost three straight games and the offense has not looked good.
It’s hard to imagine the Michigan State offense being able to keep up with the number 1 scoring offense. Also, the Spartans have struggled defensively the past three weeks as well. Undoubtedly so, considering they are giving up an average of 33 points per game these three weeks. Obviously, Michigan State will have their hands full this weekend.
Buckeyes Offense Leads the Way
Unquestionably, the Buckeyes offense needs to continue to run consistently. The offense is what keeps this team running like a well oiled machine. This past week, Stroud had a subpar game due to weather conditions. But, was covering by the rush attack of Miyan Williams scoring 5 times. As long as the offense can stay consistent, the defense will continue to be a top-10 defense. Furthermore, the Buckeye offense is what will keep this team moving successfully.
Buckeyes Bye Week
Following the game against the Spartans, the Buckeyes will have their bye week. This could be huge for the Buckeyes who are dealing with some injuries. Although TreVeyon Henderson is coming back this week from an injury, this will give him time off to heal more. As well as Jaxson Smith-Njigba. It hasn’t been stated that he’s coming back, but a bye week gives him more time to recover. Buckeyes also have some defensive players that are banged up like Tanner McCalister, Transfer Safety from Oklahoma State. This week off gives the Buckeyes rest and heal for a tough upcoming schedule.
