Ohio State vs. Wisconsin: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

The great thing about night games is the build up, the atmosphere, and the national attention. The bad thing is everything else. How will you fill your pre OSU-Wisconsin game day?

Jamie Sabau

Heading into this evening's big game (in which Ohio State finds themselves 7-point home favorites in a game you can watch on channel 1006 on Time Warner Columbus), there's plenty of question. Will the Buckeyes be able to slow down Wisconsin's vaunted rushing attack? And is this game going to produce enough fireworks to to top the 55.5 over/under?

Perhaps most up to speculation is how you'll spend the rest of your Saturday – and by extension, what other college football games you'll be watching. Week 5 represents the polar opposite of a paltry Week 4 with a number of solid, high profile games. A potentially sneaky good game leads off the noon slate with South Carolina (-7) visiting The American's UCF.

Then things get really good with the 3:30 group of games. Notre Dame plays host to Oklahoma in what's sure to be a tense, close one. OU are actually 4 point road favorites in this one. In the same block, Georgia is -3.5 against LSU at home in what could prove to be the game of the day.

Getting into the evening affairs, some have been trumpeting Texas A&M-Arkansas as a potential sleeper upset game. While ol' Bert might have things looking interesting, don't bet on it; A&M are 14.5 point road favorites. The only other p.m. games besides OSU-Wisconsin to keep an eye on are Arizona-Washington (-7) and Ole Miss-Alabama (-16). The Rebels might just surprise the Crimson Tide yet.
