Watch Ohio State-Wisconsin hype video
The weekly hype video produced by the Buckeyes video team never disappoints, but they save their best stuff for the biggest matchups. The video for the Big Ten Championship against Wisconsin was released Wednesday afternoon, and it definitely lives up to expectations. Be sure to watch it here.
FiveThirtyEight gives Buckeyes good playoff odds
If Ohio State beats Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game, the data journalism site FiveThirtyEight gives the Buckeyes a 58 percent chance to make the College Football Playoff. The Buckeyes are a 6 1/2-point favorite over the Badgers in the Saturday contest.
4 Buckeyes make first-team All-Big Ten offense
Four Ohio State players were named first-team All-Big Ten selections on offense Wednesday. Quarterback J.T. Barrett, center Billy Price and left tackle Jamarco Jones were first-team selections from both the coaches and media. Left guard Michael Jordan was a first-team selection by the media but not the coaches.
J.T. Barrett named Silver Football finalist
J.T. Barrett has a chance to win another Silver Football, the award given by the Chicago Tribune to the Big Ten’s best player. Barrett was named one of three finalists for the award, joining Penn State running back Saquon Barkley and Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor. Barkley and Barrett split the award in 2016.
