Ohio State football Mike Weber Michigan State

The No. 10 Ohio State Buckeyes (8-1, 5-1 B1G) head back on the road this weekend to face Michigan State (6-3, 4-2 B1G).

The Bucks beat Nebraska 36-31 last weekend, while the Spartans beat Maryland, 24-3.

The Buckeyes lead the all-time series 31-15, but have have found themselves in some absolute rock fights up in East Lansing recently.

Two of Ohio State’s last three trips to Spartan Stadium have ended with 17-16 wins.

Can the Buckeyes keep their 2018 Big Ten title hopes alive by getting out of East Lansing with another victory?

Here’s everything you need to know about this weekend’s game, whether you’re headed up to see it in person or watching from home.

Kickoff Time

The game kicks off Saturday, November 10 at noon Eastern.

TV & Streaming

You can watch the game on FOX, or stream it via the Fox Sports Go app. Gus Johnson, Joel Klatt, and Jenny Taft are on the call.


The game will be carried live on the Ohio State Football Radio Network. Find your local Ohio State Football radio station here.


Hopefully you enjoyed the two weeks of fall we had after temperatures finally dropped out of the 80s, because Big Ten football weather is now officially here.

The projected high temperature in East Lansing on Saturday is 34, and it won’t be that warm yet when the game kicks off. There is no rain or snow in the forecast, but the wind is expected to be around 15-20 MPH.

Point Spread

Ohio State is a 3.5-point favorite. The Over/Under is 52, which is 17-20 points lower than many of the Buckeyes’ games this fall.

If those numbers are both accurate, the Buckeyes should win 28-24 or so.


There are still seats available on the MSU website for $80 or $120 each.

You may find this Spartan Stadium seating chart useful.

Tickets are much cheaper on Stubhub. As of Wednesday afternoon, you can get end zone seats for less than $30 each. Seats close to the 50 in the lower bowl are selling for less than $75.

Spartan Stadium Bag Policy

MSU is not messing around with its bag policy. Their website makes it clear that yes, whatever you call your purse/backpack/camera case, it is a bag, and no it is not allowed. Even seat cushions with pockets are banned.

If you have to carry stuff inside, the only thing you’re allowed to bring is a one-gallon sized clear plastic bag (Ziploc bag or similar).

You can find the complete bag policy here.


The MSU website promises “abundant” public gameday parking for $20 or $30 depending on the lot.

Parking lots will open at 7:00 am on Saturday.

You can find more information on their Gameday Website.

There is a parking map here.

  1. No way the Bucks win this one or Michigan. They’re a mediocre team with some bad coaches, period.

  2. Hopefully we are wearing our normal, traditional uniforms, and not alternate uniforms. Stick with tradition and go up there and get a Buckeye victory! Need to make this a three week season, and stay focused! Go Bucks!!

    1. Who cares what piece of cloth they are wearing? If you want normal, traditional, why not orange and black, halloween colors, the original colors that the school chose?

      1. @Sir Miles Sir, lol. Nobody calls 14 year old boys Sir. Get back on your meds and stay off grown up sites. .

    2. @Buckeye Screw the gay gimmick uniforms. If they want to do an alternate stick to classic throwback Buckeye uniforms. It is a three game season as far as I’m concerned. If we can give Michigan another loss the season will be salvaged. .
