SPARTANS TOP BUCKEYES

Playing without its star quarterback, Michigan State put the defending national champions on the outside looking in at the College Football Playoff race.

Michael Geiger kicked a 41-yard field goal as time expired and No. 9 Michigan State, playing without injured Connor Cook, beat No. 2 Ohio State 17-14 to snap the Buckeyes’ 23-game winning streak.

On a rainy and windy day at Ohio Stadium, the Spartans took control of the Big Ten East, put themselves into the thick of the playoff hunt and very likely ended the Buckeyes’ chances to repeat as national champs.

Ohio State managed just 132 yards against a rugged Spartans defense and lost for the first time to a Big Ten team in the regular season since Urban Meyer became coach four seasons ago. The Rose Bowl might be the best that the Buckeyes can do now

HAWKEYES RISING

Iowa barely acknowledged winning the Big Ten West. The Hawkeyes have much bigger goals.

C.J. Beathard threw three touchdown passes and No. 6 Iowa clinched a share of the West title and a spot in the Big Ten championship game with a 40-20 win over Purdue.

LeShun Daniels Jr. ran for two TDs for the Hawkeyes, who’ll play at Nebraska next week in search of their first 12-0 regular season - just a year after finishing 7-6.
