Meet The Spartans: Michigan State Football Depth Chart Against Ohio State

Michigan State travels to Columbus for a noon kickoff on Saturday to play one of its biggest road games since 2015, which also happened to be in Columbus.

The Spartans, ranked No. 7 in the College Football Playoff rankings, have just one loss this season (to Purdue) and are looking to return to college football’s final four with three more wins.

They did it six years ago. In 2015, then No. 9 Michigan State beat No.3 Ohio State in Ohio Stadium to stun the Buckeyes. A few weeks later, the Spartans won the Big Ten Championship Game and were selected to the CFP.
