|When:||Saturday, November 11, 2023 at 7:30 PM ET|
Noah Kim QB vs. Kyle McCord QB
Noah Kim, Michigan State’s quarterback, has had an uneven season so far. With 1090 passing yards at 56.9% completion rate and six touchdowns against six interceptions against only six touchdowns scored against him, Kim has proven both pivotal and inconsistent throughout this campaign. Ohio State will put Kim’s ability to perform under pressure and decision-making skills under scrutiny; particularly short and precise passes which must avoid penetration by their defensive front seven’s pass rush tactics from across the field.
Kyle McCord of Ohio State boasts an impressive resume. Boasting 2352 passing yards, a 65% completion rate, and 17 touchdowns under his belt, his stats speak for themselves. McCord excels at deep throws and reading defenses to remain an effective threat – two qualities Michigan State will need him for in order to exploit their secondary.
