One thing Ohio State has done consistently well this season is run the football. Carlos Hyde and Braxton Miller lead an offense that's been unstoppable at times. But if there's a team that can stop them, it would be Michigan State. The Spartans are equally tough at stopping the run, leading the nation in rushing defense. Needless to say, something's gotta give this weekend in the Big Ten Championship Game. 

One thing is for sure, the Buckeyes will be ready for...

It's Michigan...

Aaron Bates was one of the best punters in college football last year, and even if he didn't hear his name called at the NFL draft, that wasn't a guarantee the John Glenn graduate wouldn't get his shot at the pros. Today, he got that chance.

Bates agreed to terms with the Pittsburgh Steelers to head to Latrobe and take part in camp. The Steelers do have a punter in Daniel Sepulveda, but he has missed half of his professional career due to injury and is set to become a free agent....
