It's a strange thing for Michigan State, being the higher ranked team when facing Ohio State. For years we have played the role of David to the Goliath Ohio State. Last year was bittersweet in the Big 10 Championship game when MSU came back to beat the Buckeyes 34-24 and punch their ticket to the Rose Bowl. More is on the line this year, chance to play in the first ever College Football Playoff.

Ohio State has won 20 straight Big Ten regular season games. Michigan State has won 14 Big 10 games in a row including the Championship game. This is the REAL Big 10 Championship game.

Here is a video preview.

Here is the State pump up version with AWFUL AUDIO. TURN IT DOWN!
