The battle to gain the upper hand in the Big Ten East will take place Saturday when Michigan State travels to Columbus to face Ohio State.
Both teams are 5–1 in the conference, and both teams have two regular season games remaining after this weekend.
Ohio State is coming off a 55–24 thrashing at the hands of Iowa, which put their national championship aspirations in peril.
The Spartans beat Penn State 27–24 after a lengthy weather delay. Sophomore quarterback Brian Lewerke threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns as neither team did much on the ground despite the poor weather.
The teams have split the last six meetings, including the 2013 Big Ten Championship Game, which was won by the Spartans.
