The game on Sept. 24 will be air live on ABC for a national audience. This will be Ohio State’s 3rd prime time game to begin the season. Each of the 3 prime time games will take place at home for Ohio State. Ohio State opened the season on prime time against Notre Dame and the Week 3 matchup against Toledo will also happen in prime time.
For Wisconsin, this will be the team’s second prime time game of the season. The 1st game of the season happened in prime time against Illinois State. It will be an important game for both teams and it will likely draw a big television rating in that time slot.
Wisconsin fell to 1-1 on the season following Saturday’s home loss to Washington State. On the other hand, Ohio State heads into Week 3 against Toledo with a 2-0 record.
