The tough month of October schedule continues for the Buckeyes on Saturday, as they make the 4-hour trip to Champaign, Illinois for a matchup with #15 Fighting Illini at Memorial Stadium.

The game is set for kickoff at 3:30 p.m. on ABC-TV. The Buckeyes lead the series 62-30-4 and they won in Champaign last year 24-13.

The Illini are led by former OSU assistant coach and Loudonville, Ohio native Ron Zook.

The Illini at 6-0 have not started a season 7-0 since 1951 which was Woody Hayes’ first season at Ohio State.

The Illini on defense are not very good as they rank 56th nationally against the pass, allowing 217 yards per game.

The Illini offense is a good one led by QB Nathan Scheelhaase and WR A.J. Jenkins. That duo gave OSU fits last year and most definitely will this time around.

Jenkins leads the Big Ten in pass receptions (46), receiving yards (815) and receiving touchdowns (7). And Scheelhaase is a duo-threat who can run and pass. He is averaging 206 yards a game, with 10 passing touchdowns and 3 interceptions.

The Illini have a running back by committee like the Buckeyes. They employ Troy Pollard and Jason Ford and ranks 13th in the nation and fourth in the Big Ten in rushing with 226 yards per game.

The Illini have the edge on both sides of the ball for this matchup.

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.

SPARTANS NOTES:

* 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. The Spartans rank number-17 in the NCAA in total attendance as 514,894 fans went through the turnstiles for seven home games.

* The Magic number is 24 points for Michigan State. Since 1990, the Spartans are 117-32-1 for a winning percentage of .783 when it scores at least 24 points and 18-86-1 (.176) when it scores fewer than 24 points. During that 22 year history, MSU has compiled an overall record of 135-118-2 (.533).
