No. 1 Ohio State aims for its second College Football Playoff berth in four seasons as it takes on No. 8 Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game on Saturday in Indianapolis.
The Buckeyes (12-0, 9-0 Big Ten) steamrolled virtually every opponent they faced during the regular season keyed by the offensive duo of quarterback Justin Fields and running back J.K. Dobbins. Ohio State’s average scoring margin is +38.1 with its closest game coming in a 28-17 win over Penn State in November. Not to mention the Buckeye’s defense anchored by the potential top pick in this year’s NFL Draft in defensive end Chase Young.
Coach Ryan Day has done an incredible job in his first year at the helm in Columbus and has the Buckeyes clicking on all cylinders heading into their biggest game of the season so far.
The Badgers (10-2, 7-2 Big Ten) look to avenge their 38-7 regular-season loss to the Buckeyes. Had Wisconsin not lost to Illinois earlier in the season, Saturday’s game may very well have been a play-in game for the playoff. Now, the Badgers look to play spoiler and claim their first conference title since 2012.
Saturday will mark Ohio State’s third consecutive appearance in the Big Ten championship and fifth overall. Wisconsin will make its sixth overall appearance, and first since its 27-21 loss to Ohio State in the 2017 conference title game. The Badgers have lost in their last three appearances in the Big Ten title game.
