MICHIGAN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes ready for Cousins & Cunningham

 

QB Kirk Cousins

The Big Ten Conference season begins this coming Saturday, as the Michigan State Spartans travel to Columbus, Ohio for a 3:30 p.m. contest on ABC-TV in Ohio Stadium.

Both teams survived the pre-conference schedule with 3-1 records.

The October 1 game marks the 40th meeting between Michigan State and Ohio State. The Buckeyes lead the series 27-12, including a 13-7 record in games played in Columbus. The Buckeyes have won seven in a row and 12 of the last 14 meetings. The Spartans last win in the series came on November 6, 1999, 23-7 in Spartan Stadium. The last MSU win in Columbus came over the #1 ranked Buckeyes on November 7, 1998, 28-24.

The top two players getting the ink for Michigan State is QB Kirk Cousins and WR B.J. Cunningham.

Fifth-year senior Kirk Cousins, now in his third season as the Spartans starting quarterback, has a chance to win more football games than any other signal-caller in Michigan State history. Cousins has compiled a 19-10 record for a .655 winning percentage in 29 career starts. A school record 21 career wins is held by Jeff Smoker, (2000-03). His career winning percentage (eighth) and career wins (11th) rank among all active NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision quaterbacks.

Fifth-year senior B.J. Cunningham, a native of Westerville, Ohio, which is a suburb in North Columbus, leads the Big Ten in both receptions (7.3 per game) and receiving yards (107.0 per game).

WR B.J. Cunningham

In addition, Cunningham ranks among the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision Top 20 in both stat categories: tied for 14th in receptions and tied for 16th in receiving yards. Cunningham leads the team in receptions (29), receiving yards (428) and 20-yard receptions (6). Nineteen of his 29 catches (66 percent) have resulted in either a touchdown or a first down. Cunningham has caught at least one pass in 38 straight regular-season games, which ties him for the fourth-longest active streak in the NCAA FBS.

* Michigan State is a crowd favorite around college football. The Spartans have ranked among the NCAA’s top 25 in attendance each of the last 55 years, including a #19 ranking in 2010, averaging 73,556 fans per game.
