The No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers (6-1 overall, 3-1 B1G) are on the road for the second time in as many weeks to play the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes (7-0 overall, 4-0 B1G) on BIG NUDE SATURDAY at Ohio Stadium.
The Buckeyes haven’t lost yet this year and, to be quite honest, haven’t even been challenged. They are quite good and will be looking to add another ranked win to their resume before a bye week and then two more bye weeks (playing Rutgers and Maryland) before ending the season with a tough stretch against Penn State and at Michigan.
The Badgers defense will need to be focused on preventing big, chunk plays against an explosive Buckeyes offense. Ohio State has produced 12 rushes of 30 yards or more and five have resulted in touchdowns. Last year, the Buckeyes had six such plays. J.K. Dobbins leads with four 30+ yard runs this season.
Here are the staff predictions for the game:
Bob: 31-17, Ohio State
Ryan: 27-21, Wisconsin
Tyler: 31-21, Ohio State
Owen: 38-21, Ohio State
Belz: 34-24, Ohio State
Neal: 40-24, Ohio State
Rock: 31-24, Wisconsin
Drew: 31-21, Ohio State, dammit Tyler
Kevin: 35-14, Ohio State
So, everyone took the L last week in the staff predictions. I don’t really want to see what the outrageous score predictions we made did to the rankings Bob made for us. Yikes. Anywho, Ryan and Rock haven’t lost the faith in the Badgers are will be making HUGE strides up the rankings if UW pulls off the upset since everyone else has the Buckeyes winning.
As a note, please continuing flagging the spam comments that are infiltrating a lot of our game day posts. It makes things a lot easier for me as I am usually holding at least one child while trying to moderate the game thread.
