Last season, Michigan State was the only team to defeat Ohio State as the Spartans won the Big Ten East and reached the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes, meanwhile, settled for a Fiesta Bowl victory and a 12-1 record.
Now, Ohio State wants revenge.
The Buckeyes on Thursday released a 90-second trailer ahead of their game against Michigan State on Saturday in East Lansing, Mich., and it will totally pump an Ohio State fan up.
The circumstances are a little different for this year’s Ohio State-Michigan State game. Last season, the Spartans had just one loss and were ranked No. 9 while the Buckeyes were unbeaten and No. 3 when the teams met. This time, the Buckeyes have a loss but are No. 2 in the latest CFP rankings, while the Spartans are just 3-7 on the season. But Saturday is still a big game for Urban Meyer & Co. Ohio State needs to win to have any shot at reaching the Big Ten title game and perhaps making the CFP.
The game will kick off at noon ET.
