Here at the College Wires, we have the luxury of team experts across the Big Ten when conference game day rolls around.
This week, we spoke with Phil Harrison of Buckeyes Wire to get the context behind Ohio State’s 3-0 start to the season as well as his thoughts on this week’s matchup.
We went in-depth into different areas of this year’s Ohio State team, including the biggest early-season surprises for the Buckeyes. A question that has been circling around Badgers Twitter this week was also addressed: C.J. Stroud or Justin Fields, who scares you more?
Here is our full interview behind enemy lines with Phil Harrison:

Phil: We answered that with our writers this week on Buckeyes Wire. I think the biggest surprise for many has been the play of Denzel Burke at cornerback, and not in a good way. He was fantastic as a freshman last season but has given up too many explosive plays in 1:1 situations on an otherwise much improved defense. That side of the ball will need him to get back to form if it has desires of going as far as many think the Buckeyes can.
Justin Fields or C.J. Stroud to win you one football game?
