Buckeyes know they’ll have to be at their best
With No. 23 Wisconsin coming to face fourth-ranked Ohio State, odds favor another close game
COLUMBUS, Ohio — If a championship season is determined by a play here and there, then Urban Meyer wants his fourth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes to know what’s riding on Saturday night’s big showdown with No. 23 Wisconsin.
The teams have a history of playing tight games that teeter on one dramatic moment.
Two years ago, the Buckeyes’ Braxton Miller avoided a rush and hurled a 40-yard touchdown pass with 20 seconds left to win it. Last year the Badgers’ Curt Phillips flipped a 5-yard TD pass to Jacob Pedersen to force overtime, where Ohio State won 21-14.
Now Miller, back from a knee injury, may start in place of red-hot Kenny Guiton.
It’s going to be an interesting week.
