All eyes will be on Spartan Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as the Michigan State Spartans kick off Big Ten play against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The Spartans bring a 3-1 record into Saturday's contest, but have yet to play a game within the Big Ten. A win on Saturday would vault Michigan St. to the top of the Legends division in the Big Ten.

Ohio St., though ineligible for postseason play this year, are a perfect 4-0 so far on the season. Like the Spartans, this will be the Buckeyes' first Big Ten game this season.

Here's a look at Saturday's schedule, for all teams in the Big Ten conference. All times ET.
