The two teams that hold at least a share of every Big Ten championship since 2005 will meet in Columbus Saturday night, as No. 4 Ohio State is set to host No. 23 Wisconsin.
While the Buckeyes (4-0) are on the shortlist of national-title contenders, Urban Meyer sees the Badgers (3-1), who have made three consecutive trips to the Rose Bowl, as the Big Ten’s premier team.
“We have a lot of respect for Wisconsin,” Meyer said, according to Kyle Rowland of Eleven Warriors. “In my opinion, they are the king of the Big Ten.”
Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland sees things differently, writes Zack Meisel of The Plain Dealer.
“We’ve got the trophy, but I’m sure we are considered the underdog,” Borland said, “We’re fine with that. We’re fine with it either way.”
One certainty going into Saturday’s clash, though, is that it will be one of the hardest-hitting games for either team all season.
Both teams are coming off dominant victories. Ohio State blasted Florida A&M 76-0 last Saturday while Wisconsin dispatched Purdue in easy fashion.
