No. 9 Michi­gan St. 17, No. 2 Ohio State 14

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

The Spar­tans (10-1, 6-1 Big Ten, No. 9 CFP) took con­trol of the Big Ten East, jumped into the thick of the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off race and very likely ended the Buck­eyes’ chances to re­peat as na­tional cham­pi­ons.

Ohio State (10-1, 6-1, No. 3 CFP) man­aged just 132 yards against a rugged 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.

With­out Cook, the Spar­tans com­pleted one pass in the sec­ond half, but they gave Geiger a chance to win it with 3 sec­onds left and the 5-foot-8 ju­nior curved it through.
