While in high school, Paris Johnson Jr. remembers all too well watching Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game.

The opponent he associates the most with the Big Ten Championship Game is Wisconsin, a team that has earned Johnson's respect. 

Johnson will face the Badgers, known for their physicality, for the first time in his collegiate career Saturday in Ohio State’s Big Ten opener. It's a matchup he's very much looking forward to. 

“This is a game I’ve been looking forward to since high school,” Johnson told reporters Wednesday, giving a nod to Wisconsin's reputation at the line of scrimmage. 

Johnson was one of six Ohio State players to meet with the media Wednesday along with Cade Stover, Miyan Williams, Luke Wypler, Steele Chambers and Tommy Eichenberg. You can hear what they had to say about the Badgers in the videos above and below.
