Winning the B1G West at 10-2 (7-2), one of No. 8 Wisconsin’s two defeats came at the hands of the Buckeyes, a 38-7 thrashing in Columbus on October 26.
Averaging a shade under 50 points per game (49.9), Ohio State fields the nation’s top scoring offense. In his first year as a Buckeye after transferring from the Georgia Bulldogs, sophomore quarterback Justin Fields has completed 68.2% (189-277) of his passes for 2,654 yards, 37 touchdowns and just one interception.
Rushing for four scores in the Buckeyes’ victory over No. 14 Michigan on November 30, junior tailback J.K. Dobbins leads the team with 1,657 yards on the ground. More than capable of spelling Dobbins for stretches, redshirt freshman Master Teague III has ran for 780 yards at a 6.1 clip.
Another one of America’s top running backs, junior Jonathan Taylor has been the heartbeat of the Badgers’ offense over the last three seasons. Scoring a total of 25 touchdowns thus far (20 rushing, five receiving), he has 104 more rushing yards than Dobbins this year at 1,761.
Returning to the team after a brief expulsion amid sexual assault allegations, junior wide receiver Quintez Cephus has reestablished himself as one of the conference’s best. Wisconsin’s leading receiver by nearly 400 yards, he has caught 45 passes for 720 yards (16 AVG) and six scores.
Listed as a 16.5-point favorite by CBS Sports, Ohio State is seeking their third consecutive conference championship. The 2016 Penn State Nittany Lions are the last team other than the Buckeyes to claim a league title.
