It was more than just a nightmare for the Michigan State as they lost by a whopping margin of 56-7 to their archrivals, Ohio State Buckeyes. Although the Spartans certainly seemed to have curbed the offensive assault of the Ohio State in the second half of the game, but their failure in the first half was something that trailed the Spartans to a record-breaking loss.

“This is more than just about winning the game,” Ohio State coach Ryan Day told CBS Sports prior to kickoff. But when the game was halfway through, it did not seem like a playoff elimination game, rather it was more like a joke. It felt as if the Michigan head coach needed to throw the towel after they trailed their rivals by 49-0 at the end of the second half.

NFL reacts to the Ohio State Buckeyes’ triumph

The elimination game did not seem like one at all, as Ohio State completely dominated the play that at one point the NFL community took to Twitter to react to the Michigan State crisis. The game was so dominated that the Buckeyes quarterback C.J. Stroud threw six touchdowns for 400 yards and two interceptions in the first half itself. “Everything we thought we were going to get, we got,” Stroud said.

Big sporting celebrities and athletes like Patrick Mahomes, LeBron James, Ezekiel Elliott and others went bonkers on Twitter as they watched the Buckeyes eat up Spartans through the first half of the game.
