Dienhart: These 5-0 Buckeyes are very good

We interrupt your week filled with Big Ten bashing to tell you that Ohio State is good. It’s very good, in fact. Probably the best team in the Big Ten and reason to emote some conference pride. The Buckeyes looked the part of a very good team in methodically dispatching Michigan State, 17-16, today in East Lansing vs. a Spartan team that was desperate to show it was legit after looking inconsistent the first four games. “I know the Big Ten has taken some heat; I thought that was a great game, great atmosphere, bunch of great players on the

Ohio State stays perfect, nips Michigan State

Braxton Miller threw for 179 yards and ran for 130, and No. 14 Ohio State held off No. 20 Michigan State 17-16 on Saturday, giving Urban Meyer a win in his first Big Ten game as Buckeyes coach. Miller put Ohio State (5-0, 1-0) ahead 17-13 with a 63-yard touchdown pass to Devin Smith in the third quarter, and the Buckeyes’ maligned defense held Le’Veon Bell and the Michigan State running game in check.

3rd Quarter Recap: Ohio State 17, Michigan State 13

Andrew Maxwell led Michigan State in the quarter. He threw for 108 yards and one touchdown and caught a 29-yard touchdown pass, but the margin is still four, as the Spartans trail 17-13. Michigan State made the score 7-6 after Dan Conroy drilled a 50-yard field goal to finish off a 49-yard drive. The Spartans used a grind-it-out style on the drive, as no play went for more than five yards. Ohio State added to its advantage when Drew Basil kicked a 26-yard field goal, capping off a 13-play, 66-yard drive to give the Buckeyes the lead, 10-6. Maxwell’s 29-yard

1st Quarter Recap: Ohio State 7, Michigan State 3

No. 14 Ohio State racked up 67 rushing yards in the first, and the Buckeyes lead 7-3 at the end of the first quarter. Ohio State got on the scoreboard first, rattling off a seven-play, 75-yard drive that ended in a score when Jordan Hall turned a handoff into a one-yard touchdown. The Buckeyes threw just one time during that series. A 54-yard drive that ended when Dan Conroy made a 30-yard field goal helped No. 18 Michigan State narrow the deficit to 7-3. The Spartans will start the second quarter with the ball on their own 37-yard line. [

Week 5 Previews: What to look for in Big Ten play

Earlier this week I helped take a look at who might land in the 2012 Big Ten Football Championship game. Well, the road to that big game starts Saturday as Big Ten teams put a rocky non-conference run behind them and focus on pounding on each other. In this post, I take a close look at all six games, and then I’m headed to East Lansing to cover Ohio State and Michigan State on Saturday. Also, every Saturday BTN.com editors provide Rapid Recaps with quarterly updates from every game topped off with my Saturday Snap Reactions. Get those quarterly updates

Revsine's Numbers: It's time for Big Ten play

Conference play is here – and not a moment too soon. I don’t say that for the reasons you might think (though I’m certainly not complaining about not having to discuss which game this weekend is most important for the Big Ten’s national reputation). For me the excitement is purely selfish. I get some time in my life back – the time I’ve spent over the last four weeks preparing for the Big Ten’s non-conference opponents. You never know when you might get another Appalachian State over Michigan – and my job, of course, is to be prepared to talk

Remember this: Denicos Allen goes Bobby Boucher?

Saturday, Michigan State hosts Ohio State in one of the week’s top games. Remember what happened the last time these two teams met? Aside from the absolutely putrid offensive effort, that is. Michigan State linebacker Denicos Allen provided one of the best highlights of the 2011 season, when he went all “Waterboy” on a sack of Joe Bauserman, pictured above. [RELATED: Who wins Week 5 Big Ten games? Vote now] Funny thing is, the Spartans actually watched Adam Sandler’s “The Waterboy” as a team the night before that game at Ohio Stadium. Clearly, Allen was a fan of the movie

Mark Dantonio: 'I just wanted to get out of there'

Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio joined “BTNLive” Tuesday night, and the head coach was much more talkative than the last time we saw him in front of the camera. Dantonio, of course, conducted a very short postgame press conference (Watch it) following Saturday’s lackluster victory over Eastern Michigan. Why was he a man of so few words. “I just wanted to get out of there, in all honesty,” Dantonio told our crew. Watch the full interview now and see our chat with Rex Burkhead in this post. Here’s what else Dantonio had to to say about his presser: “I just had
