COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sporting Alert – Ohio State and Michigan State will look to stay undefeated on the season when they resume College Football Big Ten action on Saturday, October 24.

No. 1 Ohio State improved to 7-0 and 3-0 in the Big Ten last Saturday with a 38-10 win over Penn State to remain in the hunt for a playoff spot and defend their national title.

With the victory last weekend, the Buckeyes extended its nation-leading winning streak to 20 straight – the longest win streak since winning 24 consecutive games in 2012-13.

This is also the second-longest streak by a Big Ten team since 1969, reports the conference.

This coming weekend in Week 8 on the NCAA college football schedule, Ohio State will take on Rutgers (3-3, 1-2 Big Ten), at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey, and Urban Meyer’s side will start as the heavy favourite to extend its win streak.

Meanwhile, after securing a dramatic victory over rivals Michigan on the last play of the game on Saturday, Michigan State (7-0, 3-0) will also be hoping to improve to 8-0 on the season.

The Spartans admitted that they were indeed lucky to get the better of the Wolverines in the last game, but believed their determination throughout the game played a part in the late win.

In Week 8, Mark Dantonio’s side will be up against Indiana at Spartan Stadium.

The Hoosiers (4-3, 0-3) have dropped three straight after winning their first four games.

In the meantime, the undefeated team, Iowa (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) will be idle this coming weekend.

In another game involving Big Ten teams in Week 8, struggling Northwestern, which has dropped back-to-back games, starving on offense, and falling out of the AP top 25, will be trying to turn things around against Nebraska.

The Wildcats (5-2, 1-2 Big Ten) were held scoreless by Michigan in Week 6 in a 38-0 defeat before being punished again by Iowa in a 40-10 losing effort in Week 7.

Elsewhere, Penn State will travel to M&T Bank Stadium to take on Maryland and Wisconsin will go up against Illinois.
