FROM OHIO STATE & WISCONSIN GAME NOTES

Getting to know Ohio State’s Game 8 opponent, #13 Wisconsin Badgers

No. 13 Wisconsin vs. No. 3 Ohio State • Saturday, Oct. 26 • When: Noon • Where: Ohio Stadium • TV: FOX • Play by Play: Gus Johnson • Analyst: Joel Klatt • Sidelines: Jenny Taft

 

SHOWDOWN IN THE HORSESHOE

 

Two of the most successful programs in the Big Ten go head to head in a big noon showdown Saturday at The ‘Shoe when No. 4 Ohio State welcomes No. 10 Wisconsin to Columbus for a key inter-division contest. The Buckeyes are 7-0 on the season following last Friday’s 52-3 win at Northwestern while Wisconsin is 6-1 and coming off a 24-23 loss at Illinois.

When the Buckeyes and Badgers get together, one thing is certain: the stakes are always high. The last time they met was the 2017 Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis, a 27-21 Ohio State victory that was keyed by 174-yard rushing performance from J.K. Dobbins.

 

GETTING TO KNOW THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN

 

• The University of Wisconsin is organized into 20 schools and colleges, which enrolled 30,361 undergraduate and 14,052 graduate students in 2018.

• Among the scientific advances made at UW–Madison are the single-grain experiment (which marked the birth of modern nutrition science), the discovery of vitamins A and B by Elmer McCollum and Marguerite Davis, the development of the anticoagulant medication warfarin by Karl Paul Link.

• Located in Madison, about a mile from the state capitol, the main campus of the university is situated partially on the isthmus between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona.

• The team’s nickname originates from the state nickname. In the 1820s, many lead miners and their families lived in the mines in which they worked until adequate above-ground shelters were built, and thus were compared to badgers.

• Five of the last six meetings between Ohio State and Wisconsin have been decided by six points or less, including the most recent: a 27-21 Ohio State win in the 2017 Big Ten championship game.

• J.K. Dobbins is 53 yards away from becoming the first running back in program history with 1,000-yard seasons as a freshman, sophomore and junior.

• The Buckeyes have outscored their opponents 158-20 in the second quarter of their seven games this season.

• Ohio State is the first Big Ten team to start a season with seven consecutive wins by 20 points since 1973, when Ohio State began that season with nine such wins.

• Ryan Day is 10-0 to start his Ohio State coaching career and is just one victory shy of matching Earle Bruce for the third-best start by a Buckeye coach to open his tenure. Bruce was 11-0 in 1979 and Carroll Widdoes opened 12-0 in 1944-45. Urban Meyer’s 24-0 start in 2012-13 is the best at Ohio State.

Ohio State DB Jeffrey Okudah named semifinalist for Paycom Jim Thorpe Award

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Junior cornerback Jeff Okudah, whose play is a major reason why Ohio State is 7-0 and has the nation’s No. 2-ranked statistical defense, was today chosen as one of 14 semifinalists for the 2019 Paycom Jim Thorpe Award, which is awarded annually to the best defensive back in college football.

The award recipient is selected by the Paycom Jim Thorpe Award National Selection Committee, which boasts members of the NCFAA, an Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame in-house award committee, former Paycom Jim Thorpe Award recipients, and sportswriters and college football journalists throughout the country.

The 2019 Paycom Jim Thorpe Award winner is selected from three finalists and will be announced at The Home Depot College Football Awards Presented by Gildan and broadcasted live on ESPN on Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019. The Paycom Jim Thorpe Award commemorative banquet will be held in Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020.

Okudah, who is the only Big Ten player included on the list, has 17 tackles, three pass breakups and a team-high three interceptions this season. He’s been one of the brightest stars in a secondary that’s allowing just 136.3 yards per game passing, second fewest in the country.

A Grand Prairie, Texas native, Okudah made his first career interception in the fourth game of the season vs. Miami. A week later at Nebraska, he picked off two passes – including one while lying on his back – in a 48-7 win over the Cornhuskers. Okudah is currently second in the Big Ten and 10th nationally in interceptions.

Okudah is part of an Ohio State defense that’s allowed just three passing touchdowns this season – tied for the fewest in the country – and 20 total points over the last three games. The Buckeyes have allowed just 10 passes of 20 yards or more, which is tied with Clemson and Utah for second best in the country.
