COLUMBUS — Ohio State begins its 110th season in the Big Ten on Saturday.
The Buckeyes open up their conference schedule with its 85th game against Wisconsin and look to extend their win streak to nine over the Badgers.
No. 3 Ohio State wrapped up its non-conference schedule last weekend with a dominanting 77-21 win over Toledo. The Buckeyes racked up almost 800 yards of offense and saw just about every dressed player take the field.
Quarterback C.J. Stroud had five incompletions with five touchdowns, and his performance earned him the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week.
Defensively, the Buckeyes continue to showcase the highly-anticipated unit while also finding things to improve upon. Defensive coordinator Jim Knowles was critical about his unit during Tuesday’s press conference leading up to the Wisconsin game.
“I don’t think we did a great job,” Knowles said. “I think it was not at the level that we want our defense to be.
“[We want] Silver-Bullet caliber.”
Ohio State has another opportunity to improve its team and continue its forward momentum on Saturday.
