MSU defense, OSU offense eyeing each other

INDIANAPOLIS — The marquee on the Big Ten title game says “Ohio State vs. Michigan State.” But it may as well say “Ohio State’s offense vs. Michigan State defense.” That’s what many are focused on the eve of the game. Why not? Each is among the best in the nation in their respective field.

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.
