OSU at Wisconsin

October 4

Overview:

If Jim Tressel has an Achilles heal you would have to say it’s a toss up between the SEC and Wisconsin.  The Badgers have won 2 of the last 3 meetings against the Buckeyes and is the only Big Ten school that Jim Tressel doesn’t have a winning record against (3-3). 

Wisconsin has been picked as the Big Ten runner up to the Bucks in the conference preseason and should be a top 15 team coming into the game.

By Pete Quint

Preview:

    Wisconsin will roll out a new quarterback this season but the Badgers return a very deep and talented corps of running backs and wide receivers.  The Badgers also sport a mammoth defensive line and will not be intimidated by the Buckeye offensive line.  The guys in the trenches will have to play one of their best games if they want to keep Todd Boeckman in an upright position.  Physical edge goes to the Bucks as Wisconsin will be coming off a game with the Wolverines the week before.

Outcome:

    The formula is simple; pressure the young quarterback and stop the run (easy for ME to say).  That should spell out a victory but the game is a night game in Camp Randall.  Not only are these some of the most vicious fans in the Big Ten but the long wait will give them plenty of time to get good and sauced up before kickoff.  The Buckeyes have a more complete team that’s full of future NFL players but this will likely be the most physical game that OSU will play to date.
