On Saturday night, No. 2 Ohio State will head to Madison, WI, to play No. 8 Wisconsin. This is the marquee game of the Big Ten conference schedule for Oct. 15.
Ohio State comes into this game at 5-0 and with a chance to solidify their No. 2 ranking. Knocking off a top-10 team in Wisconsin would boost their résumé for a potential College Football Playoff spot, especially if they lose one game.
However, based on how the Buckeyes have played, no one but Michigan has been able to stop them. This is despite being labeled as a “young team” coming into the 2016 season. Their only notable test came against Oklahoma, though, who has struggled. Given that Wisconsin is inside their conference, this may be OSU’s biggest test.
The Buckeyes have seen plenty of production from the backfield. This has seen four players cross 300 yards, with the entire group totaling 1,618 yards. Quarterback J.T. Barrett hasn’t been needed as much either since they keep blowing out teams. Wisconsin won’t be easy to defeat, though, so he may have to throw more than his season high of 31 times.
Wisconsin started the season unranked, but jumped into the polls after defeating then-No. 5 LSU. They also knocked blew out Michigan State, which may have been one of the shocking moments of the season. The Spartans rarely lose by three-plus touchdowns, but that became the case with this loss two weeks ago.
The Badgers’ offense is by no means dynamic. They’re averaging just 3.8 yards per carry and haven’t crossed 1,000 yards passing. However, their stingy defense has held opponents to a maximum of 17 points through six games. It’s an incredible mark, but one that may not hold up against Ohio State.
