Back in October, the Ohio State Buckeyes beat up on the Wisconsin Badgers by the score of 38-7. Those two teams will meet again this Saturday, Dec. 7 in the Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis, Ind. and the oddsmakers have taken note of the first result and have installed the No. 1 Buckeyes as a 17.5-point favorite for the rematch.
The margin is the second largest of Championship Weekend, behind only Clemson’s -28 in the ACC Championship Game over Virginia.
While you peruse the rest of the conference championship lines below, it is also worth pointing out that all three of Ohio State’s non-conference opponents have found themselves in their individual conference title games; Florida Atlantic in Conference USA, Cincinnati in the American Athletic Conference, and Miami (OH) in the MAC.
