Ohio State beats MSU 17-16

Michigan State University loss to Ohio State 17-16 Saturday at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing.

Spartan fans had high hopes for a big win in their first Big 10 conference game of the year against the Buckeyes.

MSU fan Robin Weller told 6 News, "They've always been a second half team, ever since Dantonio started coaching them," he said. "They go into the locker room to figure stuff out & they'll come back & start catching passes."

However, the green and white didn't figure it out in time as Ohio State closed the game 17-16.

The close score had fans on the edge of their seats.

"From the first quarter to the fourth quarter, I was nervous, the whole entire game," said Ohio State fan Todd Gasper.

"What a game! I mean two great teams battling it out, it's kind of fun seeing it come down to the last couple of plays. Obviously as a Buckeye fan, we're really happy with the results," said Greg Alft.

As 75,000 people poured out of Spartan Stadium Saturday, some MSU fans held their heads low, while others brushed off the loss.

"I mean it was a really exciting game, but you can't win them all," said MSU student Andrew Benson.

"I think we put up a good fight," said Emily Orlando. "I'm sad, but I know we can do better."

The Spartans will have their chance to do better next Saturday as they take on conference opponent Indiana on the road.
