Michigan State-Ohio State warm-up notes
By Brian Bennett
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- It's an overcast, cool game with a threat of some rain here at Ohio Stadium. The weather could potentially impact the passing game, which probably favors Ohio State more than Michigan State.
Buckeyes running back Jaamal Berry, who was reportedly involved in an unusual and still unclear incident which required that he seek medical treatment earlier in the week, is in uniform and warmed up. So he must be OK. With the way Jordan Hall and Carlos Hyde have been playing, Berry might not be needed.
For Michigan State, offensive lineman Jared McGaha (knee) returns from injury and should play at one of the guard spots. That should help a banged-up Spartans offensive line. Injured center Blake Treadwell (knee) did not make the trip. Nose tackle Anthony Rashad-White also is back after missing last week's Central Michigan game, and wide receiver Keshawn Martin is available as well.
