In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr preview Saturday’s huge game between Ohio State and Michigan State. The show starts with a conversation about the Buckeyes’ offense against the Spartan defense, then finishes with a look at the other side of the action. Can Michigan State’s offense keep up with OSU? How many points do the Buckeyes need to feel safe? The fellas discuss all of this and much more ahead of Saturday’s contest.
+ It’s MSU Week!
+ This is finally going to be the week the Buckeyes are tested.
+ This will be the best defense OSU has faced this season.
+ Let’s see where this Ohio State offense stacks up.
+ It starts with Kenny Willekes.
+ Not sure about Branden Bowen yet.
+ Why was Josh Alabi the player of the week?
+ Justin Fields will need to be quicker in everything this week.
+ MSU’s linebackers are good.
+ Antjuan Simmons will be everywhere.
+ There is room to do stuff in the secondary.
+ They gave up 20-consecutive completions to Indiana last week.
+ The MSU secondary has been taken advantage of.
+ Do the Buckeyes open with the run or the pass this week?
+ The first-team defense was impressive last week.
+ How is Michigan State going to move the ball?
+ Brian Lewerke is healthy, but has never been great against Ohio State.
+ There is a situation on MSU’s offensive line.
+ But they lead the Big Ten in sacks allowed.
+ Northwestern sacked them twice.
+ Can the Buckeyes double that number?
+ Even if they don’t sack Lewerke, they’re going to pressure him.
+ You can’t expect an offense to play its best against the best defense they face.
+ We told you it was a good thing that Damon Arnette was coming back.
+ There are three first-rounders at cornerback right now maybe.
+ Is this group of corners as good as the 2016 unit?
+ What’s the over/under on OSU’s rushing total?
+ What if I tell you 167 yards?
+ Michigan State will need help from Ohio State.
+ It could be a 20-10 blowout that was never in doubt.
+ Get ready to see some Tresselball from the leaders in the fourth quarter.
+ Tony gives his prediction.
+ Tom sort of gives his score as well.
+ If they blowout Michigan State, it’s time for the nation to buy in.
