Ohio State has a fairly sizeable matchup Saturday night with the Wisconsin Badgers. It’s the first Big Ten game of the year for both teams, and this one will go a long way in determining which way the conference will go right out of the gate.
The Badgers have lost eight straight to Ohio State, but the games always seem to be a physical Donnybrook that is competitive and entertaining. It figures to be the same in the ‘Shoe during a blackout this time as well, despite what the oddsmakers say.
We always like to get some perspective from the opposition, and this week we’re in luck, because it just so happens we have a sister site for Wisconsin, Badgers Wire.
Site editor/writer Asher Low was kind enough to take some time to field some questions on the state of the Badger program and talk about Ohio State from a Wisconsin point of view. We think what he had to say was entertaining and engaging and hope you do too.
The following is our entire conversation for your scrolling and reading pleasure. And while you are at it, if you know anyone that’s a Wisconsin fan, or just want to get an idea of what they are saying in Madison beyond this, head on over to Badgers Wire and have a look around.
