MADISON, WI (WSAU) The Wisconsin defense is getting ready to face Ohio State and its much-heralded sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller. A year ago, Miller burned the Badgers for 99 rushing yards and 89 through the air – and he produced three-of-the-four touchdowns for O-S-U in a 33-29 win over the Badgers in Columbus.
Saturday’s game will be played in Madison – but the Badgers don’t expect the home atmosphere to dilute Miller, who has produced 29-hundred-19 total yards and 27 touchdowns this season. He’s the big reason Ohio State leads the Big Ten in scoring with just under 40 points a game.
Wisconsin linebackers’ coach Andy Buh says if the defense does not like up properly against Miller, quote, “it’s a touchdown.” Co-defensive coordinator Charlie Partridge says the Badgers will be up for the challenge of facing Miller – and it will take a lot of discipline.
The Buckeyes are undefeated at 10-and-0, and they’ve already clinched at least a share of the Leaders Division title. They are on probation and not eligible for the Big Ten title game. Wisconsin is 7-and-3 overall, and 4-and-2 in the conference.
