After routing 4 foes, Buckeyes face 1st close game vs. Badgers

Posted-September 26th, 2013 4:16 pm

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- No. 4 Ohio State has been a runaway locomotive in its non-conference games.

The Buckeyes have never trailed, led 102-14 through the first quarter and have been on top by at least eight points for 92 percent of the time.

Now they play 23rd-ranked Wisconsin, which has a history of playing close games with the Buckeyes. No fewer than 15 of the last 28 meetings have been decided by seven or fewer points -- including the last two.

As much as the Buckeyes say they took a lot out of their four pre-Big Ten games, one thing they didn't is that feeling of having to make a big play under pressure in a tight game.

When Saturday night rolls around, they may finally have to do that.
