One day after their absolute destruction of the Michigan Wolverines, it was announced that Ohio State would be 14-point favorites in the Big Ten Championship game against Northwestern, according to Vegas Insider.

Northwestern has not played the Buckeyes since 2016, when Ohio State narrowly defeated the Wildcats 24-20. Ohio State has currently won six straight games in the series, and is 61-14-1 all time.

Northwestern is coming off a 24-16 win over Illinois. The Wildcats are 8-1 in Big Ten play this season, with their one loss coming at the hands of Michigan.

Kickoff is set for this Saturday at 8 p.m. on FOX.
