For the First Time... a dozen years, the Spartans beat the Ohio State Buckeyes today.

Despite shooting themselves in the foot on offense several times, the defense held the Buckeyes to less than 200 total yards, and a bunch of those came on the final drive of the game. The Bucks had 178 yards, 62 of which came on the final drive of the game. In fact, the Spartans pitched a shutout until there were only 10 seconds left in the game.

The defense playing like it did today makes you wonder how good they would be if the offense could hold up it's end of the deal a bit more often.

The Spartans are idle next week and then host the Wolverines the week after that...I'm hoping that maybe in the off week they can get their act together on offense and manage to send Michigan packing with their first loss of the season.
