Welcome to the biggest Saturday of the college football season thus far for the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes. In what will likely be a wet and windy Ohio Stadium, Ryan Day’s team will host the No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers who are coming off of a surprising, last-second loss to the Illinois Fighting Illini 24-23 last Saturday.
The game will kick off at 12 noon ET and will be aired on FOX’s Big Noon Saturday. The network’s pregame show, featuring former OSU head coach Urban Meyer, will emanate from inside The Horseshoe beginning at 11 a.m. ET.
Despite the Badgers falling from the ranks of the unbeaten, the game is of incredible import for both teams. For the Buckeyes, staying undefeated is the only way to guarantee that they will have an inside track to the College Football Playoff. For the Badgers, if they fall for the second consecutive week, it would put them in a substantial hole to climb out of in order to make the Big Ten Championship game in December.
To get you ready for the big game, we’ve collected all of our coverage from the week that was specifically focused on the Badgers. Read, learn, enjoy, and of course, Go Bucks!
