INDIANAPOLIS — Ohio State had national title aspirations going into Saturday night's Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis, needing just one win to punch their tickets to Pasadena.

No. 10 Michigan State had other plans.

Powered behind the nation's best defense, the Spartans held the second-ranked Buckeyes to season lows in points and yardage, while MSU quarterback Connor Cook dismantled the Ohio State secondary en route to a 34-24 upset victory, inside a packed Lucas Oil Stadium.

He then reiterated those sentiments to the USA Today newspaper later in the day.
