The 8th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes (8-1), led by quarterback Dwayne Haskins, met 24-ridden Michigan State Spartans (6-3), led by quarterback Brian Lewerke, in a Big Ten NCAA Week 11 college football match on Saturday, November 10, 2018 (11/10/18) at the Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Michigan.
Here is the AP Round:
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – The first day of Grace Chrismans was a shame, a 4-yarder at the end of Ohio State’s first holding.
“I do not know where it is in Ohio State’s worst points in history, but it was definitely my worst point,” Chrisman said. “I was just like,” Man, I have to hit the ball after this. “”
The Chrisman made up for the early blooper and kept the Michigan state on his side with a sensational second half of punting. The eighth ranked Ohio state pulled out for a 26-6 victory over the 24th ranked Spartans on Saturday, largely due to what Chrisman did to Michigan State’s field position.
In a tight defensive battle, Chrismans Point’s Michigan State (6 -4, 4-3 Big Ten, No. 1
8 CFP) forced to start its 5 first units after halfway from its own 5, 6, 3, 1 and 2 -yard line. On the fourth of these possessions, the Spartans took deliberate safety instead of dunking out of their own end zone. That decision gave Ohio State a 9-6 lead, but was not enough to reverse the field position.
The following free kick went outside the boundaries and gave Buckeyes the ball at 50, and then the Chrisman Michigan State fell again. Ohio State (9-1, 6-1, No. 10) was capitalized at that point when a shotgun snap of the Michigan State hit the man in motion. Dre Mont Jones recovered Buckeyes fumlar in the end zone, giving Ohio State a 16-6 advantage.
“We just continued playing in the field position game,” said Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer. “We always talk about the offensive in a game like this – get two first downs, take the ball to the midfield and let’s get the ball down inside the 10-yard line. “
Both crimes experienced the difficult. Michigan State was 2 for 16 third. The Spartans used both Brian Lewerke and Rocky Lombardi on the quarterback but never reached the end zone.
” It’s not easy to call plays off the finish line “said Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio.
Chrismans Day started with its 4 but I did not have anyone else to join, said Meyer.
Ohio State opened the score late in the second, but Michigan State could not exploit. 19659004] quarters of a 1 yard pass from Dwayne Haskins to Parris Campbell. It was 7-3 in a half-time.
The Spartans had a third quarter touchdown called back for punishment. They decided for a field goal on that run to do it 7-6, but it was as close as they got.
Michigan State has treated significant injury problems at the punter position this year, and it was a factor in Dantonio’s decision to take safety . The Spartans soon returned to their own goal line. That was when fumble on snap turned the game into Ohio State’s favor for good.
“Sent the movement a bit early,” Lombardi said. “We just have not connected it … I have to fix it.”
Ohio State: This was probably Buckey’s toughest remaining challenge before a late November showdown with Michigan. Ohio State remains very much in violation of the Big Ten title after closing the Michigan State’s offensive and winning the special team. Buckeyes has won seven straight road games in this series.
Michigan State: Lombardi seemed to give the Spartans a spark in the first half, but the Michigan State’s offensive could not keep up, thanks in part to all bad field positions. Spartan’s top-ranked defense seemed to be out, but they could not move the ball well enough.
At the last minute in the first half, Michigan State was about to go for it on fourth and one from Ohio State 26. Then the Spartans called a timeout.
Then the bucks called one. Then the Ohio State went to another.
Then Michigan State took a timeout.
Finally, the Spartans entered and kicked a field goal.
Haskins threw for only 227 meters, but it was enough to move him in front of JT Barrett and past Bobby Hoying on the school’s single-season list. Joe Germaine, who passed 3,330 meters in 1998, tops the list but is only 50 in front of Haskins.
Michigan State is likely to fall out of the Top 25 while Ohio State hopes a solid win on the road will impress the voters and the playoff committee.

What is in mind?
Ohio State is still on course for a season-long showdown with Michigan that can decide the division title, but Buckeyes must first handle a Michigan State team that has recently had them trouble. A win this weekend would improve Spartan’s chances at a quay in Rose Bowl.
Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins vs Michigan State’s Secondary. The Spartans have the nation’s number one defense, but they must find out how to contain Haskins, which has already exceeded 3,000 meters passing the season and completes 70 percent of their efforts.
PLAYERS AS A FRIEND  Ohio State: RBs JK Dobbins and Mike Weber. Dobbins and Weber have both run for more than 600 meters this season, so Buckeyes have options when they want to test Michigan State’s run defense.
Michigan State: QB’s Brian Lewerke and Rocky Lombardi. Lewerke has been the starter of the season, including last weekend against Maryland, but he has taken care of a damaged shaft and Lombardi has been able to relieve. Coach Mark Dantonio stood at Lewerke as a starter this week.
