Ohio State is looking as close to full strength as it has all season long heading into its first matchup against a ranked opponent.
Coming in against the No. 25 Michigan State Spartans, the Buckeyes return fifth-year offensive tackle Branden Bowen to the starting lineup.
Ohio State, a week after returning captain Jonathon Cooper, may have another captain coming back into the lineup, with H-Back C.J. Saunders listed as a game-time decision.
Also a game-time decision is senior tight end Rashod Berry, who is listed as a co-backup along with Jeremy Ruckert and Jake Hausmann.
Here are the other names listed as unavailable for Michigan State:
WR Kamryn Babb
DT Noah Donald
WR Elijah Gardiner
SAF Ronnie Hickman
LB Teradja Mitchell
DT Taron Vincent
