After a slow start that saw No. 4 Ohio State leading No. 25 Michigan State 3-0 after the first quarter, the pace picked up in a hurry in the second. The Buckeyes and Spartans combined for 34 points in the quarter, but unfortunately for the visitors, it was Ohio State scoring most of them. The Buckeyes rode three second-quarter touchdowns to a 27-10 lead on the Spartans at the break.
Michigan State’s defense did a great job of limiting Ohio State’s offense in the first quarter, but as anybody who has played the Buckeyes can tell you, once the dam breaks there’s not a whole lot you can do. The Buckeyes scored on a 60-yard touchdown pass to Binjimen Victor and a 67-yard touchdown run from J.K. Dobbins. Between those two was a 21-yard touchdown toss to Luke Farrell.
Both teams then decided to leave their offenses in the locker room at halftime, as neither scored in the third quarter — which is probably better for Ohio State seeing how it’s the team entering the fourth quarter with a 27-10 lead.
