Ohio State still has yet to face a real test this season, but that could change this week – maybe.
After improving to 7-0 on Friday with a 52-3 win over Northwestern, Ohio State is set for its biggest and most anticipated game of the season to date when it hosts Wisconsin at Ohio Stadium at noon Saturday.
The Buckeyes were dominant yet again last weekend in Evanston, which left us with plenty of takeaways to discuss on this week's episode of Real Pod Wednesdays, including Ohio State's remarkably consistent and complete play so far this season, another efficient performance by Justin Fields and the emergence of “Big Thanos,” aka Dawand Jones.
In the second portion of our show, we preview this week's game against the Badgers, and discuss whether they can be the team that finally gives Ohio State a real test – or whether they're just another team in line to be overmatched by the Buckeyes after their loss to Illinois this past weekend.
As always, we wrap up the show by answering your questions, including whether we would trade Ohio State's No. 2-ranked defense for Wisconsin's No. 1-ranked defense, whether we'd take two years of Fields or two years of Dwayne Haskins and whether J.K. Dobbins or Jonathan Taylor will rush for more yards on Saturday.
