COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State Football is kicking off its Big Ten schedule against a top-tier opponent in another game under the lights.
A prime-time game against Notre Dame marked the debut of a new defense and some new faces on offense hoping to stand as the next potential first-round NFL draft picks while many celebrities were in the crowd.
A prime-time game against Toledo was more of a last-ditch vote, while offering a chance for some already established players to work their way back.
Now comes a prime-time game against Wisconsin, which is more of a proof-it week.
Jim Knowles’ defense has shown promise, but neither has she faced an offense where multiple players have been able to spot her in a way that can lead to a win. The absence of guys like Jaxon Smith-Njibga, Julian Fleming, and at times TreVeyon Henderson has allowed CJ Stroud’s other weapons to develop chemistry with him while also establishing himself as a threat.
Now comes a game against the Badgers who can provide the right confirmation that the OSU roster can truly contend for a national title in 2022. Just like the last four encounters, whether during the regular season or multiple Big Ten championship games.
What better way to do that than with another prime-time game on ABC for the whole world to watch?
Watch the full trailer above as you prepare to watch Ohio State take on the Badgers on Saturday.
