Wisconsin strikes first: Jonathan Taylor blasts through Ohio State's defense early with 44-yard TD
The Big Ten Championship Game is finally here. If you’re not watching already, it’s on FOX.
Ohio State lost the coin toss to start the game and Wisconsin wanted the ball first. A snap of the fingers later, and, the Badgers lead 7-0.
The five-play, 83-yard drive was capped off with a 44-yard Jonathan Taylor run. Take a look:

To set Taylor up, Badgers QB Jack Coan completed a 27-yard pass to WR Quintez Cephus on the very first play of the game. As long as Wisconsin can make the Buckeyes’ defense respect the pass, it will only help Taylor that much more.
He doesn’t need much help, but when he gets it, we’ve already seen what he can do.
