BUCKEYES DOUBLE DIGIT FAVORITE AGAINST WISCONSIN: Ohio State is favored by double digits to beat Wisconsin — the spread is 10.5 according to Vegas Insider. If the Buckeyes win big, it will be an exception to recent history in Madison. Ohio State hasn’t rolled into Madison and walked out a double digit victor since 2000. That 23-7 victory against No. 24 Wisconsin marked OSU’s only win against a ranked team that season. It was of course also to be John Cooper’s last season as head coach.
