Wisconsin vs. Ohio State Preview for Week 4

The Wisconsin Badgers are being given a tall task this week, as they are on the road against Ohio State. While they have a defense that allows just eight points per game, they are facing an offense that produces over 45 points per game.

If the Badgers are to secure a road win, they must limit their turnovers. Wisconsin will have Braelon Allen, who leads the rushing attack. Allen has 332 yards on five touchdowns from 50 carries this season. If Allen can get his game going and wear down this Buckeye defense, the Badgers could pull off the upset in Columbus.

Ohio State has high expectations this season and that ultimately starts with a Big Ten Championship. A major task is in their way, as they face a Big Ten West team that has hopes to pull off the road upset. This team is stacked with talent that wants to get to the College Football Playoff.

Heisman Trophy candidate C.J. Stroud has been on a tear this season. Stroud has 941 yards passing with 11 touchdowns in just three games so far this year. The hyped-up gunslinger is leading the Buckeyes by example on the field in 2022.

Ohio State has an opportunity to make a statement in the Big Ten and they see Wisconsin as a first major step in their ultimate quest.

Wisconsin vs. Ohio State Predictions

The Ohio State Buckeyes have been one of the top teams in college football in recent years. They expect to be at the top of the sport and maintain a high standard every week. This week is no different.

Wisconsin Badgers vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

J.K. Dobbins shredded the nation's best rushing defense for 163 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries and Chase Young tied a school record with four sacks as No. 3 Ohio State defeated No. 13 Wisconsin 38-7 at soggy Ohio Stadium in Columbus on Saturday.

Wisconsin had allowed 58.4 yards rushing but Dobbins had 92 in the third quarter when the Buckeyes (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten) increased a 10-7 lead to 24-7 on a 10-yard run by quarterback Justin Fields and Dobbins' 9-yard rush.

Dobbins added a 14-yard TD on the ground early in the fourth quarter. He had 216 total yards, including three catches for 53 yards

Jonathan Taylor of Wisconsin (6-2, 3-2) had 52 yards on 20 rushes. He was averaging 136.7 rushing yards per game.

Defense ruled in the first half until the Buckeyes' last drive, when they took a 10-0 lead on Fields' 27-yard pass to Chris Olave with 43 seconds left.

Earlier, Blake Haubeil kicked a 49-yard field goal at 6:52 of the second quarter for a 3-0 lead.

That defense ruled the first half, especially with a driving rain at times, was not surprising.

The Badgers entered first in scoring defense (7.6 points) and total defense (193.9 yards) while the Buckeyes were second in each category (8.0, 229.0) while offensively being No. 3 in scoring (49.7).

Wisconsin had 72 total yards in 29 plays in the first half but got back into the game with a partial block of a punt by Alexander Smith to get the ball at the Ohio State 30 early in the third quarter. Three plays later, Jack Coan threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Taylor to make it 10-7 at the 12:08 mark before Ohio State pulled away.

Fields was 12 for 22 for 167 yards and two TDs to Olave, who had seven catches for 93 yards.
