COLUMBUS, Ohio -

The Big Ten announced on Monday that No. 5 Ohio State's game on Nov. 17 at Wisconsin will kick off at 2:30 p.m, Central time.

The game will be televised by ABC/ESPN2.

The Buckeyes (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten) have a bye this week. The Badgers (6-3, 3-2) have won five of their six home games. They play at Indiana this Saturday.

The Ohio State-Wisconsin game could determine who represents the Leaders Division in the Big Ten championship game. The Buckeyes and Penn State (6-3, 4-1) are eligible to win a division title but are not permitted to play in the title game or a bowl because of NCAA sanctions. Wisconsin is third in the division but the top eligible team.
