With a victory in the Big Ten title game this Saturday, No. 2 Ohio State will likely punch its ticket to Pasadena, Calif. for a trip to the BCS National Championship Game.
Standing in the way of that reality is No. 10 Michigan State and its relentless defense.
The Spartans rank first nationally in total defense, giving up just 238 yards while holding their opponents to fewer than 12 points per game. That domination has lifted Michigan State to the top of the Legends Division and arranged a date with the unbeaten Buckeyes this Saturday in Indianapolis.
Ohio State will challenge the Spartans with one of the most dynamic offenses in the country. The Buckeyes are averaging more than 538 yards of total offense and 48 points per game, both of which rank inside the top six nationally.
