INDIANAPOLIS – With a Big Ten championship on the line, Ohio State will play the same team for a second time in the same season for the first time in 44 years tonight.
Ohio State is making its third straight appearance in the Big Ten Championship Game, which is scheduled for an 8:17 p.m. kickoff at Lucas Oil Stadium and will be televised on Fox, and it will be a rematch with Wisconsin, who the Buckeyes defeated 38-7 at Ohio Stadium on Oct. 26.
Is there reason to believe the second matchup between the Buckeyes and Badgers will play out any differently than the first? How could playing indoors at Lucas Oil Stadium, instead of on a cold, wet day at Ohio Stadium, change the game? Will Justin Fields' sprained MCL have any impact on the game? What should we expect from J.K. Dobbins, who Ryan Day said Friday will be playing with a “chip on his shoulder” after losing out on Big Ten Running Back of the Year honors to Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor?
Dan Hope and Colin Hass-Hill discuss each of those questions in our final preview of tonight's game.
