There will be no repeat national championship, let alone a return trip to the College Football Playoffs for the Ohio State Buckeyes after reigning champions lost on a last second FG to the Michigan State Spartans
Everything appeared to be lined up for an easy win for Ohio State: at home, QB J.T. Barrett playing great football, star Michigan State QB Connor Cook out with an injury, and above all with a 30-0 conference record since head coach Urban Meyer was hired back in 2012. Michigan State apparently didn’t get the memo that they had no chance in this game.
Ohio State’s only points came off big turnovers from the Spartans but still never gave up the lead throughout the game.
Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, Michigan State managed to come back from a 14-7 deficit to tie it at 14-14 and had the ball last, driving down deep into Ohio State territory to set up a 41-yard game-winning FG.

And just like that, after not holding the lead at all in the game, Michigan State left the stadium with a 17-14 victory.

The loss did more than put an end to Ohio State’s 23-game winning streak that had included their National Championship win over Oregon back in January, it effectively ended their chances of winning the Big Ten conference title as well as a trip to the College Football Playoffs.
A rough loss, and one Urban Meyer may not live down… until next year.
