S5E11: Battle for the East


Join Zachary Swiecicki, Joey Ellis, Kyle Turk, Andy Chmura, and Julian Mitchell for episode eleven of the Spartan Red Zone. As always, they start with the current news, headlined by the second College Football Playoff rankings and MSU’s latest depth chart. Week ten in the Big Ten saw some big changes in the conference standings.

The SRZ crew discusses the Spartans’ walk-off 27-24 upset win over Penn State — how did the Michigan State defense limit Saquon Barkley and Trace McSorley? SRZ interviews FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) about what it was like to cover last week’s game during the weather delay and what he’s seen from this young MSU team.

In a battle for the B1G East, Ohio State hosts MSU this upcoming weekend, looking to bounce back after a blowout loss to Iowa last Saturday. Can the Spartans stop the lethal combo of J.T. Barrett and J.K. Dobbins? The group answers that question and gives an in-depth look at MSU-OSU.

The Thursday mailbag segment is full of topics from rivalries to Brian Lewerke. Week eleven in the conference features a few games that could determine who will play in Indianapolis in December. Lastly, the fan-favorite pick ‘em segment continues as Joey holds onto his lead.

No. 12 Michigan State plays No. 13 Ohio State Saturday at noon at Ohio Stadium on FOX. Stay tuned to the Impact Sports website for all of your MSU football and fall sports coverage. Also follow @WDBM_Sports on twitter to stay up-to-date on everything in the sports world.
