College Football Week 12: #6 Ohio State At Wisconsin
|Urban Meyer has to be wondering why his school didn’t self-impose a bowl ban last season. Instead, the Buckeys are undefeated but won’t play in the postseason.||Coaching||Brett Beilema’s team will return to the Big Ten Championship, clinching a spot with a blowout win over Indiana last week.|
|OSU was off last week, but the last time out they racked up 567 yards, albeit against Illinois. Carlos Hyde gave quarterback Braxton Miller some support in the run game.||Offense||After not being able to run the ball at all the previous week, Wisconsin ran for 564 yards last Saturday. Five hundred sixty four. If a team can handle its rushing attack, though, it’s unclear whether the Badgers move the ball through the air.|
|The Buckeyes were dominant against Illinois, but so has most every team. Throughout the season, this defense has struggled, but it does appear to be improving.||Defense||Wisconsin is 16th in the country in yards per play allowed. Not since September has an opponent scored more than 14 points against the Badgers.|
|OSU gave up a lot of yardage against Illinois on punt and kickoff returns. That is typical for the Buckeyes, which have been bad on special teams in Meyer’s first year.||Special Teams||Wisconsin’s special teams play has been nothing special. They could use a big play in the return game to take some pressure of their offense.|
