Ohio State lost the coin toss in the Big Ten Championship Game to Wisconsin. That wasn’t it, though.
The Badgers went right down the field and scored, making it 7-0. Then, the Badgers scored again. It was 14-0 and Ohio State didn’t score in the first quarter.
Midway through the second quarter, the Buckeyes still weren’t on the scoreboard. They faced a fourth-and-nine situation on their own 26-yard-line and what did they do?
They ran a fake punt.
It worked perfectly:

Punter Drue Chrisman delivered a perfect ball to Luke Farrell for a 21-yard gain that sparked life in Ohio State. Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, they drove down the field and quarterback Justin Fields fumbled the ball on a third-and-goal scenario.
Wisconsin still leads 14-0 late in the second quarter. The game is being televised on FOX.
