While all the talk has been about the dynamic quarterback situation at Ohio State, an undefeated season may hinge on their defense. They'll have the toughest task of the season against Wisconsin's running game. On Saturday, Ohio State comes in as a seven point favorite over the Wisconsin Badgers according CBSsportsline.com.
The Wisconsin Badgers are third in the country in rushing. They average 349 yards per game. Yet, they'll have their work cut out for them when they visit the Ohio State Buckeyes. Defensively, the Buckeyes are the top 10 against the run. It's going to be a match up of grit and toughness.
When: Saturday September 28, 8:00 p.m.
Where: Ohio Stadium
Don't be fooled by the badgers one loss. It should have been a win. Their running game is enough to make old school Nebraska fans jealous. Wisconsin can pound opponents into submission.
Ohio state now has two starting quarterbacks thanks to Braxton Miller's injury. Or maybe it's due to Kenny Guiton's play. Either way, Ohio State's offense has been rolling and they'll need to be in top form to keep Wisconsin at bay.
It's unclear how Urban Meyer will use the two quarterbacks, but he may have something special planned for Wisconsin.
Both offenses rely heavily on the run, but the emergence of Kenny Guiton in the passing game has proven to be a game changer.
Ohio state has not lost since urban Meyer took the job. Do we dare pick against them in this spot?
