GAME OF THE WEEKEND: Michigan State at Ohio State. The Spartans (12-6, 4-1) bounced back from a loss to Penn State by beating No. 24 Minnesota 65-47 on Wednesday night. Miles Bridges scored 16 points, rebounding after two subpar games following a seven-game absence because of a sprained ankle. The Spartans have a chance to move back into the AP Top 25 by winning at Ohio State on Sunday. The Buckeyes' tough week started on Thursday night at No. 18 Wisconsin. Ohio State hopes to reverse its fortunes at home after losing in double overtime to Purdue on Jan. 5.
