Ohio State took it to the Wolverines yet again this afternoon, and Ryan Day is now 12-0 in his first season at the helm. Day and his team had to wait a few hours to learn of their opponent in Indianapolis, but the stage is now set for another Buckeyes vs. Badgers title game.
Minnesota had been one of the nation's surprises all season long, but P.J. Fleck was unable to handle Wisconsin today in the Twin Cities. The Badgers ran away in the second half and the Gopher offense couldn't find its footing. Paul Chryst's crew ultimately topped the Gophs by a score of 38-17.
The Buckeyes and Badgers met on Oct. 26 in Columbus, and the home team was victorious by a score of 38-7. Chase Young was unblockable against a solid Wisconsin offensive line and J.K. Dobbins ran for 163 yards and a pair of scores.
Next weekend's meeting will mark the third time Ohio State has met Wisconsin in Indy. The Buckeyes crushed the Badgers 59-0 in 2014 and won by a score of 27-21 in 2017.
This year's championship matchup will get underway next Saturday, Dec. 7 at 8 p.m. The game will be broadcast on FOX.
