Ohio State and SMU only bowl-eligible teams following Week 6

Ohio State and SMU only bowl-eligible teams following Week 6”

No. 4 Ohio State (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten) smothered No. 25 ranked Michigan State (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten), holding the Spartans to only 10 points in a game where the Buckeyes executed nearly perfectly in the last three quarters.

Those things are true for many programs but not Ohio State. Ohio State is enjoying an off week before traveling to Northwestern for a Friday night game on October 18.

Which position group graded the highest for the Spartans against Ohio State?

It was a scoring bonanza in the second quarter as the Buckeyes took a 27-10 lead before the break. From there, both backs have made big plays such as Dobbins' 67-yard touchdown against Michigan State. We really don't know how solid this SMU team is yet. "I think we have played with toughness, seeing guys tackle and run to the ball, the way guys are running the ball, the way we're blocking on the line of scrimmage, the way the quarterback is playing". The Buckeyes are 6-0, dominating opponents, showing few weaknesses and share a No. 3 ranking in the AP Top 25. MI picked up a big 10-3 win over Iowa and Nebraska kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired to beat Northwestern, 13-10. "We had to get that fixed, get it going, then the offense started to roll". No offense could keep up with Justin Fields, J.K. Dobbins and company.

Now onto the second half. He passed the 3,000-yard rushing mark for his career last week at Nebraska.

Ohio State now sites at #3 in the AP Poll and #4 in the Coaches Poll and hasn't really been tested all year with dominating wins from the start.

Feeling the liability of an Ohio State cover, they've nudged the line up to -20.5, but any time they've furthered that movement to the key number of 21, sharps have pounced on the Spartans right away.

After a hard loss to Ohio State in Columbus, Michigan State is moving forward with the same goals as it had before the game: Big Ten championship.

Defensive focus: Michigan State entered last week's game at Ohio State fourth in the nation in rushing at just 55.8 yards per game. The Buckeyes opened it up from there.

Ohio State improved to 6-0 (3-0) with the win and is now tied with Georgia for the three spot on the AP Top 25.

No. 7 Auburn, No. 14 Iowa, No. 16 Washington, No. 19 UCF, No. 23 Michigan State and No. 25 Oklahoma State all dropped their Week 6 matchups.

With Urban Meyer out, Ryan Day has come in as head coach and the Buckeyes haven't missed a beat.
