The #2 Ohio State Buckeyes survived. They defeated the Michigan State Spartans, 17-16, at Spartan Stadium.
The Buckeyes beat the Spartans for the first-time in two-years. A questionable decision also helped their win.
Ohio State sealed the win after an interception with 1:30 left in the game. The Buckeyes had a scare before their rivalry game next week with #3 Michigan Wolverines.
L.J. Scott, who had a 160 yards, had a one-yard score to make it 17-16. Then, instead of tying the game with an extra point, Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio went for two-points — and it didn’t work.
Scott also had a 64-yard touchdown less than a minute into the game. It was the longest pass-play that the Buckeyes came up all season.
Spartans kicker Michael Geiger also made a 28-yard field goal.
Heisman candidate J.T. Barrett, who had 86 passing yards and a 105 rushing yards, hit Curtis Samuel for a four-yard touchdown reception. Mike Weber, who had 111 rushing yards, scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown.
Buckeyes kicker Tyler Durbin made a 39-yard field goal.
