By Jim Baird | AM Football Briefing | Friday, November 18
A TEAM AT THE EDGE: A year ago, a heavily favored No. 3 ranked Buckeye team with dreams of a national championship was outcoached and outplayed in a 17-14 loss to Michigan State on a rainy, windy day in the ‘Shoe. This year, a heavily favored No. 2 ranked Buckeye team with dreams of a national championship heads to East Lansing on what’s forecast to be a rainy day with 25 mph winds, in hopes of a decidedly different outcome. Ohio State’s official hype video is the only thing you need to watch today — can the Buckeyes serve up revenge in the rain? We’re 30 hours from kickoff.
