COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Forget all the white noise surrounding the Ohio State-Wisconsin showdown on Saturday.
If the Badgers can run the ball at will -- and the Buckeyes are unable to stop them -- it's game, set, match.
Wisconsin's rushing attack is built on a talented offensive line, an unshakeable self-assurance in their ability to move the chains, some odd personnel alignments and human projectiles named Montee Ball, James White and Curt Phillips.
Ohio State, thanks to 1,000-yard quarterback Braxton Miller and blossoming sophomore Carlos Hyde, averages more yards on the ground per game -- 256 to 219.
But the Badgers passed just seven times in their last game, a 62-14 beatdown of Indiana in which they rushed for 564 yards.
Bottom line: Running the ball is what Wisconsin loves to do.
