Going into Saturday night’s game against No. 4 ranked Ohio State, No. 25 Michigan State knew it was going to need a near perfect effort in order to pull off an unlikely upset.

But after an evenly played first quarter, the Spartans were overmatched and overwhelmed by the Buckeyes as a dominant second quarter led the way to a 34-10 blowout.

Despite the loss, Lewerke turned in an efficient performance for a second straight week, throwing for 218 yards and a touchdown on 20-of-38 passing. Elijah Collins rushed for 63 yards on 12 carries, while Stewart hauled in six grabs for 68 yards and a score.

The Spartan defense settled back down in the second half, holding Ohio State to just one fourth quarter touchdown, but the damage the Buckeyes did in the second quarter proved to be too much to overcome.

Ohio State put the finishing touches on another impressive win with an 11-play, 80-yard drive capped off by a 1-yard touchdown run by Fields, extending the lead to 34-10 with 10:41 left to play.

The schedule doesn’t get any easier for the Spartans as Michigan State heads to Wisconsin next Saturday to take on the No. 8 ranked Badgers.
