Dienhart: Looking back at last time OSU-MSU met

Adding to the intrigue of the Ohio State vs. Michigan State Big Ten championship game is the fact the teams didn’t play this fall. The Buckeyes cross-division foes in 2013 were Michigan, Iowa and Northwestern. The Spartans played Purdue, Indiana and Illinois. The last time these teams met was on Sept. 29, 2012, in East Lansing, Mich. It was the Big Ten opener for each team. And, for Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer, it was his first Big Ten game.

Thursday links: Can MSU stop OSU's run game?

The Big Ten championship game is just two days away. Should be a good one. And the one matchup we all anticipate is the clash between the Ohio State offense and Michigan State defense. How will the Spartans defend the killer 1-2 rushing duo of Braxton Miller-Carlos Hyde? Doug Lesmerises of notes that there may be no team in the nation more prepared to do it than Michigan State, ranked No. 1 in run defense.

So long 'Challenge' stickers, hello technology

Before the NCAA banned on-court stickers, Tom Izzo and several of his fellow coaches made it known they weren’t fans of them. It’s not because the stickers resulted in an eye-sore, but because they were a slipping hazard and caused injury. ESPN found another way to get the Big Ten/ACC Challenge logo on the courts during this week’s event. The network digitally inserted the “stickers” on the court. And, you wouldn’t have known the stickers were missing unless you attended one of the games. These ACC-Big Ten Challenge emblems are being inserted digitally by ESPN. Wild: — Land-Grant Holy

Q&A: Chuck Long breaks down B1G title game

Way back on August 1, I did a Q&A with Iowa legend and BTN analyst Chuck Long, asking for his views on the 2013 season. In one of my questions, I asked Long who he was picking to win the Legends Division. His selection was a bit of a surprise: Michigan State. Four months later, Long looks like a genius. Now, only 60 minutes separates Michigan State from the Big Ten championship and the conference’s automatic bid to the Rose Bowl. The Spartans, by the way, haven’t been to the Rose Bowl since the 1987 season. But Ohio State will
