As the autumn leaves begin to fall, the anticipation for the upcoming clash between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Wisconsin Badgers is heating up. The game is set to take place at Camp Randall Stadium at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The No. 3 Buckeyes are heading back out on the road after a triumphant 20-12 victory over No. 7 Penn State. The last time Ohio State played Wisconsin in Madison was during the 2016 season, where they emerged victorious with a score of 30-23.
On the other side, Wisconsin is gearing up under the leadership of their new coach, Luke Fickell. A native of Columbus and a former Buckeye himself, Fickell’s appointment as the coach of Wisconsin in November 2022 marked a significant turn in his career.
The Buckeyes are expecting the return of their injured playmakers - running back TreVeyon Henderson, wide receiver Emeka Egbuka, and cornerback Denzel Burke. Their presence on the field could be a game-changer.
However, Ohio State will be without their backup quarterback, Devin Brown, who was injured in the third quarter of the Buckeyes’ win over Penn State.
The key players for Wisconsin are:
Please note that Tanner Mordecai is out indefinitely with a broken hand he sustained versus Iowa, and running back Chez Mellusi suffered a broken leg against Purdue back in September.
Ohio State will travel to Madison as a two-touchdown favorite. The No. 3 Buckeyes — one of two teams that remain undefeated in the Big Ten — will take on Wisconsin at Camp Randall Stadium Saturday night as 14.5-point favorites.
With Ohio State’s strong performance this season and Wisconsin’s determination under new leadership, this game is shaping up to be one for the books.Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to kickoff. This is going to be a game you won’t want to miss!
