On Land-Grant Holy Land In Conversation, we talk to people in and around Ohio State athletics, and the sporting world at large, to bring you a different insight and perspective to the teams, athletes, and university that you love.

On this episode, I talk to Daniel Olinger, the managing editor for our Northwestern sister-site, Inside NU.
On Saturday, the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes will take on the No. 14 Northwestern Wildcats in the Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis. Breaking from tradition, the game will not be played in primetime, instead, the contest will kick off at noon ET on FOX. Oddly, this fact has apparently upset NU fans more than the Big Ten changing its rules at the 11th hour in order to get Ohio State in the game in the first place.
As we look forward to the contest, Daniel and I discuss the Big Ten West champions and how they have navigated this unusual season. Daniel discusses how quarterback Peyton Ramsey and his wide receivers might attack OSU’s secondary, the always stout Pat Fitzgerald defense, and what type of gameplan NU might bring into the B1G Championship Game on Saturday.
