Badgers Run Into Columbus


The #23 Wisconsin Badgers are heading to Columbus, Ohio on Saturday to face the #4 Ohio State Buckeyes.  In 2010, the #1                     ranked Buckeyes lost to the Badgers.  In 2011, the Badgers got beat by a last ditch hurl.  In 2012, the Buckeyes needed overtime   to prevail over a battered Badgers squad that was on its third quarterback of the season. This week’s Big Ten rivalry game will likely become another classic as recent history has proven.  The Badgers are going into Saturday’s game with a big win from last week’s victory over their first Big Ten opponent, Purdue. This is the first conference game for the Buckeyes.  Wisconsin has three powerful running backs, James White, Melvin Gordon III and Corey Clement.  Each back already boasts over 300 yards for the season!  Thanks to a huge offensive line that averages over 6’5” and 300 pounds, White, MGIII and Clement have had gaping holes to make great plays.  The Buckeyes defensive line is facing their biggest test of the season. They have to figure out how to stop the very powerful Wisconsin run game.  The winner of this game will likely play in the Big Ten Championship game in December.  Can Wisconsin be the champion four seasons in a row?  Go Bucky!
