Spartans to host Buckeyes under the lights Nov. 8

If you enjoyed last season’s Big Ten title game – who didn’t?! – you’ll want to leave the night of Nov. 8 open. That’s because the Big Ten announced Thursday that Michigan State will host Ohio State under the lights (8 ET) for the first time in a rematch of last season’s memorable clash at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Spartans won the game, 34-24, on their way to claiming the Rose Bowl title, the program’s first since taking the 1988 game.

As a result of Thursday’s announcement, Michigan State and Ohio State are scheduled to play five night games in 2014, a record for both teams.

For the curious minds, the two schools have split the last four meetings, and Ohio State owns a 9-4 series advantage since 1997.


Denicos Allen made, perhaps, the biggest play of the 2013 B1G title game:

How exciting for Buckeyes fans. They get extra time to make the boring drive to “Least Ansing” to fill up the stadium. While the ahem, “faithful”, are enjoying the Autumn colors , the “sea of red” will fill TV screens across the nation. The longest month of the year will continue for Aggies fans !

This will be a great game and will determine who plays in the B1G championship game from the East. This will be the biggest game in the B1G this year! Go Green!

Poor B!GFan his obsession with MSU continues. While MSU and OSU are battling it out for the East Title, Michigan will be in the middle of a coaching search….
