The Wisconsin Badgers welcomed the number one ranked Ohio State Buckeyes to Camp Randall Stadium for a Big 10 matchup on Saturday, October 28th. The Badgers were able to keep the game close through three quarters, and were only trailing 17-10 heading into the fourth quarter before a late touchdown by the Buckeyes put the game away. The loss moved the Buckeyes to 5-3.
The Wisconsin offense struggled to get things going against the Buckeyes staunch defense. Freshman quarterback Braedyn Locke, however, continued to play well and limit mistakes. He had 164 yards and a touchdown in the game, and didn’t turn the ball over.
Even as the defense stood tall at times, they were the latest victim of Ohio State receiver and consensus top draft pick Marvin Harrison Jr. He had 123 yards and two touchdowns. Still though, it was largely the Badgers own defense and the three turnovers they forced that kept them in the game.
Wisconsin will look to get back in the win column as they head to Bloomingdale on Saturday, November 4th for another Big 10 matchup with the Indiana Hoosiers.
