Entering Saturday, one of the themes for Michigan State and Ohio State will be the differing character of the two programs.

 

One program features a classic dropback quarterback while the other runs the spread through a pass-run threat. One program gobbles up five-star recruits while the other finds ways to unearth gems for similar results.
