The key to any Wisconsin game is stopping their running game, converting on 3rd down/red zone against their defense, and creating some big plays. The two times we played Wisconsin in the B1G CG, Cardale Jones and EZE went off on some big plays and Melvin Gordon was eliminated in 2014. And 2017 Paris Campbell and Terry McLaurin had big TD receptions and we held Taylor to his lowest rushing total in his career. Felds and the offense has been historically great on 3rd down and excellent in the red zone. Continue that with this defense and I think it's a 3 score win.

This question, obviously can't fully be answered until after the game. The answer depends on how you define "best team" vs "most deserving." As a Buckeye, it's hard to argue that Georgia and Alabama (with Tua) would not be better wins than TTUN, Penn St, or Wisconsin x2. You could argue that Penn St and Georgia are maybe the same. But Alabama is probably a better win than any of ours. Florida and Auburn are better than TTUN and Cincinnati or the next best team we've played. IMO I think OSU would beat LSU right now because of the eye test and "completeness" of the team. But I would actually say LSU has the better resume of teams they've beaten (considering they beat GA somewhat decisively). The committee will probably leave OSU at #1 if they smoke Wisconsin. The last time we won the natty we did just that so could be a good omen?

I actually was a little surprised by this stat. Fields has been, for the most part, very accurate throughout the season. The one thing I think you could nitpick is his downfield throws when compared to Haskins. The timing appears to be a half a step off. The receivers appear to be just slowing up a little bit to come back to the ball. Now again this is nitpicking. There are times where he is moving out of the pocket so you have to take that into consideration. The play are to Olave along with the deep ball that hit his facemask were both excellent throws. Will be anxious to see how he throws these in a dome with no elements at play. The other thing is he's only a sophomore. It's only going to get better which is insane to think about.

Interested to see this tem play in a dome. Without the variability of weather, I'd love to see Fields carve this defense up and get to sit out early. If the defense can play as well as the first matchup there should be no reason OSU doesn't win a 42-17 type of game. As others have said, just keep our QB healthy.

I totally agree on the defense. But seeing as last year was basically worst case scenario and no running game on top of that, they still go 13-1, B1G champs and Rose Bowl victory. Hard to think there wouldn't be some improvement on the defense. Think about 2013 to 2014. Literally Chris Ash comes in and th defense goes from borderline terrible to national champs.

I see your point, but "new"coach Ryan Day had been here a couple years. And Fields transferred into an established program. If anything this was more Oklahoma, Stoops to Riley than a volatile question mark.

This team was as disrespected as maybe any since Jim Tressel brought home the title going into the preseason. Crazy to think OSU wasn't even considered a top 10 team knowing Justin Fields was gonna play. Like he was such a big question mark.
