Ohio State 45, Wisconsin 17

The Buckeyes have maintained their focus throughout this season and it'd be uncharacteristic for them to slip up now. Wisconsin is a solid team with big-time playmakers in Jonathan Taylor and Quintez Cephus, but Ohio State is more talented across the board and its coaching has been a bit overlooked. With the No. 1 playoff ranking, the Buckeyes should roll.

The Big Ten championship game is like March Madness in December, which is to say it's all about matchups. And the Badgers match up poorly against the faster and more athletic Buckeyes. Ohio State maintains its No. 1 ranking with a convincing win.

Wisconsin has added layers to its offense since the last time it played Ohio State, but it still might not be enough. Unless OSU turns the ball over, it'll be tough to see the Badgers keeping up with the scoring.

No question I have to go with my alma mater, even though they are the underdog. Everyone loves a good underdog story. As my brother once said, “Even the Little Giants once defeated the mighty Cowboys” for the Urbania, Ohio, pee-wee championship in “Little Giants.” (Likely not a popular opinion in this newspaper!)
