No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes (-19.5) vs. Wisconsin | over/under 57
Game Date, Time: Saturday, Sept. 24 at 7:30 p.m. ET
Location: Columbus, Ohio
Online: Sling TV
Radio: 97.1 FM/1460 AM
Even though the Buckeyes and Badgers don’t play every year, this still feels like a rivalry game, especially given how many times the two teams have met in the Big Ten Championship Game. With their season-opening win against Notre Dame beginning to feel a bit tarnished given the Irish’s lackluster play in the subsequent weeks, Ohio State will likely be looking to make a statement against the Badgers under the lights.
C.J. Stroud is tied for the national lead in touchdown passes — despite being pulled in the mid-second half in each of the last two games — and the OSU offense is tops in the country in terms of yards per game.
However, the Wisconsin defense will put up a stiff challenge. The Badgers come into the game with the 11th-ranked defense in terms of total yards and second when it comes to picking off opposing quarterbacks with seven interceptions.
Matt’s Game Prediction: Ohio State 42-17
C.J. Stroud: at least 350 passing yards, 4 TDs
Miyan Williams, Dallan Hayden: Combine for 2 TDs
Braelon Allan: Less than 60 yards rushing
