LINKS: Michigan State vs Ohio State, 2015

A roundup of the BDS links for the Spartans/Buckeyes game. I'll have at least one more MSU post this week as well.




Michigan State
Offense
How MSU Defends Power O - MSU's 4-3 Over against UM's Base Run


MSU Jet Sweep Package - A big part of the MSU offense



MSU Trap Play - OSU likes to Wham (see below), but MSU had a lot of success on the ground last year running trap plays. Watch for it again this year.

MSU Mesh Play - A base scheme to expect against Michigan's Cover 1

MSU Switch Vertical Concept - MSU's Primary Deep Route Concept; go to it often (almost two dozen times against UM)


Pulling OL is Pass Pro - How MSU's forces the defense to key run on their passes.

Defense
Cover 4 Coverage - MSU has been mixing up their coverage away from MEG more this season; still primarily MEG


Cover 4 Front 7 Leverage - How MSU Adjusts Front 7 to give easy keys and play fast


Cover 4 Safety Play - The rules of playing Cover 4 Safety

Three links on MSU's Blitz Package:

And there is always more at the MSU tag

Ohio State
Offense

Tunnel Screen and Slip Block - Big part of OSU's lateral attack (along with 2-back offense). Puts stress on DBs to communicate during the play.


OSU's Tight Split Zone - Base run play of which much of their offense is based around


60Y Curl - Tight Split Zone is primary run play; 60Y Curl is a primary way they isolate receivers on DBs

Wham Play - A change-up from their tight split zone. How UM had a good chunk of run success against MSU.


OSU 2-Back Offense - They like to motion in the H to get speed to the edge. Zeke is a great lead blocker for QB sweeps as well which killed MSU in the redzone last year.


OSU Pin and Pull - Another way for OSU to get to the edge if MSU commits DEs inside. Like to run counter action with Barrett off of this look

OSU Speed Option Package - Another way for the Buckeyes to get to the edge, typically a check based on defensive numbers.

Sail and Cob Concepts Combined - A favorite way for OSU to attack down field with the pass. Puts a lot of stress on DBs to cover for a long time and communicate across the field.


7-Ins Concept - How OSU likes to attack with their slot, particularly in the red zone

Follow Pivot Concept - How OSU initially gives a mesh look and is still able to get open receivers underneath.

Defense
OSU also plays a Cover 4 base and has a similar blitz package, but OSU will play more MOD (though MEG is still their primary) and play their safeties deeper than MSU.

Cover 4 Coverage - MSU has been mixing up their coverage away from MEG more this season; still primarily MEG


Cover 4 Front 7 Leverage - How MSU Adjusts Front 7 to give easy keys and play fast

Cover 4 Safety Play - The rules of playing Cover 4 Safety


OSU Cover 4 Solo Adjustment - How Ohio State plays trips sets


OSU D-Line Drills - One of the best DLs in the B1G.

Press Coverage Technique - Applies to both teams, but is from an Ash presentation.

And as always, more links with the OSU Tab
