The most anticipated game of the season for any Big Ten football fan. Heck, this might end up being the biggest game of the year in college football. Michigan State will travel to Columbus to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in a battle of unbeaten in the second to last week of the season.

Ohio State and Michigan State will go back and forth all contest long, exchanging blows like heavyweight fighters.

Michigan State will begin the game strong, going up 21-14 at halftime as the Connor Cook Heisman talk will be at an all-time high. People will be discussing a possible Michigan State national title bid and the first unbeaten season for the Spartans in Dantonio’s tenure.

The second half will be a different story, though. Much like the Oregon game last season in which MSU was leading at the half, the Spartans will falter in the second half, losing the contest because of the strong arm of J.T. Barrett and the electric run game that is led by Ezekiel Elliott and Mike Weber.

It will be tough to watch, but Connor Cook will throw a late interception to seal the OSU victory and the Spartans’ playoff hopes will take a huge hit — although they won’t be out of the race.

This contest between the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country will be remember for some time as even though the Spartans will falter late, the game will be close.

Prediction: Michigan State 28, Ohio State 31 (10-1)
