It was a bittersweet win for Ohio State as they won the critical game against Michigan State but lost their starting RB for the foreseeable future.

Ohio State Buckeyes RB Dontre Wilson suffered a broken foot against Michigan State in the 49-37 upset win, putting the Buckeyes in quite a bind talent-wise as the season comes to a close but with the College Football Playoffs still awaiting.
There’s no timetable for how long Wilson will be out, but odds are he won’t be back before Ohio State’s bowl game, which means he may end up missing the rest of the season.
Wilson leads Ohio State in all-purpose yards with 1,064, as he’s spent time as a rusher, receiver and on both kick and punt returns. Wilson caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown against Michigan State on Saturday.
The Buckeyes have shown a knack for recovering from season ending injuries though. When star QB Braxton Miller went down before the season started, people were unconvinced that J.T. Barrett was the answer, but after leading the Buckeyes to an 8-1 record, just about all of the doubters have been silenced.
