The Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan State Spartans will face off this weekend in one of the biggest games of the season. Whoever ends up winning the game will likely be the team playing the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Big Ten conference championship game this year.
Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes have had some struggles, while the Spartans dropped a game against Nebraska earlier this season.
As is the case with most big games like this one, the NFL is sending quite a few scouts to the game.
There are many players that will be on-the-field this week who are considered prospects for the 2016 NFL Draft. Ohio State is going to be hosting a lot of scouts and the players are going to have their chance to show off their skill-set.
According to a report from Pro Football Talk, Ohio State has already credentialed 19 scouts from 17 different NFL teams for the game.
Joey Bosa is one of the top prospects in the nation, while Connor Cook and a few other players are also expected to be drafted high in the draft. Both teams are going to bring a little extra energy to the field knowing that so many NFL teams are in attendance.
Expect to see this game live up to the hype this weekend and for the NFL scouts to come away with new targets in mind for the upcoming draft.
