Buckeyes Prepare For Next Big Test Against Badgers

Not many people in America believe that the Ohio State Buckeyes are the best college football team in the nation, but then again, the only thing that counts is that the Buckeyes remain #1 in the BCS.

The journey to stay on top continues today for Ohio State as they face their second big test of the year. Last week, they pummeled a ranked Penn State team, but that was discredited by many who believe the Nittany Lions should not have been in the rankings.

This week, the Badgers come to town and while the Buckeyes know how dangerous Wisconsin can be, they are once again in a no win situation.

If they should win this game, critics will say that Wisconsin is another of the overrated teams in the Big Ten and that their 21st ranking was a farce, but, if the Buckeyes should lose, it is likely they would fall far out of national championship contention.

The only thing Ohio State can do is keep winning, and although public perception is that the Big Ten is down, the conference still carries enough clout that an undefeated Ohio State team should end up in their second consecutive national title game.

Game time for this showdown is set for 12:00 and will be televised on the Big Ten Network, a sign of how much disrespect the Buckeyes are getting, as the game will not be televised nationally on any of the major networks.
