A battle is brewing in Columbus, as Ohio State is set to take on Wisconsin on Saturday evening.

On Thursday, Wisconsin released an intense hype video entitled “When you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat,” ahead of their B1G conference opener. On Saturday, Ohio State’s head coach Ryan Day answered with hype of his own. Addressing fans, players, staff, and band members, Day warned of the fight coming on Saturday, saying “(Wisconsin) wants a fight? They’re gonna get a fight.”

It may not be a fight that the Badgers want to pick with the Buckeyes. The Buckeyes have defeated the Badgers in every contest since 2010. Ohio State will also reportedly return TreVeyon Henderson, a top Buckeye running back. Henderson has been dealing with a shoulder injury since the Week 2 win over Arkansas State.

Wisconsin and Ohio State will kick off at 7:30pm on ESPN.
