Wisconsin vs Ohio State Preview

Wisconsin has struggled so far this season despite a 2-1 start, the Badgers lost to Washington St at home 17-14 two weeks ago. While Ohio St got off to a slow start in their opener against Notre Dame it’s been smooth sailing since as they’ve blown out Arkansas St and Toledo.

As usual, the Badgers’ offense has been led by their rushing attack as they’ve racked up 655 yards through three games. Braelon Allen has led the way with 332 yards and five touchdowns, while Chez Mellusi has also added 163 yards and a touchdown.

Quarterback Graham Mertz has been steady this season passing for 697 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions while also completing 71% of his passes. While those are fine numbers there are still questions about how much of a threat the passing game can be.

The Badgers have a trio of receivers with over 100 yards receiving in Chimere Dike, Skyler Bell, and Clay Cundiff. The question though is if the Wisconsin pass game can complement the run game.

On defense, Wisconsin has been solid again as they’ve only eight points per game so far this season. They’ve also held opponents to just 246 yards per game so far.

The Ohio State offense has been on fire in their last two games and is now averaging 47.7 points per game so far this season. The Buckeye offense has also piled up an average of 565.33 yards per game.

C.J. Stroud has looked the part of a Heisman contender passing for 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns with no interceptions. The receiver group has been led by Marvin Harrison Jr. and Emeka Egbuka.

Harrison has grabbed 18 passes for 342 yards and five touchdowns, while Egbuka has reeled in 20 passes for 324 yards and three touchdowns. The Ohio State rushing attack has also been strong with already 621 yards on the season.

Miyan Williams and Treveyon Henderson have formed a solid one-two punch with both averaging at least 6.5 yards per carry. Henderson has also scored three touchdowns.

The Buckeye defense appears to be improved this season as they’ve held opponents to 14.33 points per game so far. They’ve also only allowed 278.7 yards per contest.

The Badgers’ rushing attack is formidable and they’ll likely use it to play keep away and keep the Ohio State offense off the field. If Wisconsin can do that then things could get interesting in Colombus.
