Ohio State wins thriller over Wisconsin

Going on the road to Wisconsin for a night game is never easy. Given the Badgers two weeks to prepare due to a bye week, and you have a recipe for potential disaster for the #2 ranked Buckeyes.

While Ohio State has mostly dominated opponents so far, this is a very young team, and Wisconsin took advantage of that early in the game with jet sweeps and other plays to keep the Ohio State defense off balance.

Also, freshman Alex Hornibrook played very well, and this kid is poised to become a star in the Big Ten in years to come. He’s big and has real poise in the pocket, and he completed big passes against the Ohio State defense for most of the game.

Meanwhile, JT Barrett struggled in the first half. He’s inconsistent as a passer, and how he plays might determined whether the Buckeyes can win another National Championship this year. But Barrett is a competitor, and he came up big in the second half as the Buckeyes rallied to a win in overtime.

Wisconsin throttles Michigan State

So this was a surprise for many. Sparty looked great last week whipping Notre Dame, but then got smacked at home by Wisconsin.

The Big Ten looks pretty tough this season with their impressive nonconference wins, and now we’ll see which teams will emerge. Michigan State seems to play well as underdogs, but then under-perform when they’re favorites.

For the Badgers, redshirt freshman quarterback Alex Hornibrook took over as the starter and played very well.
