MADISON, WI (WSAU) It’s already been determined that the Wisconsin Badgers will be in the Big Ten Championship game. This afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium Coach Bret Bielema’s team can prove it belongs there. Undefeated, number-six ranked Ohio State comes to town with an undefeated 10-0 record.
The Buckeyes actually lead Wisconsin by two games in the Leaders Division race, but they aren’t eligible for the post-season competition. That situation itself is pretty strong motivation for the visitors. They also realize it can be pretty hard to win in Madison.
Two years ago, Ohio State was also unbeaten and ranked number-one in the country when the Badgers ambushed them 31-18. Ohio State got a little payback last season in the middle of a 6-7 campaign, upsetting Wisconsin on a TD pass with 20 seconds remaining.
Kickoff for this afternoon’s contest is at 2:30 p.m. Central time.
