COLUMBUS — It was billed as a battle between the Big Ten’s top two running backs, but when the puddles finally settled from an all-day rain, it was Buckeye junior JK Dobbins who stood tallest.

The average person can expect to be correct in about 4.8% of their sports predictions. Professional sports predictors like myself, however, are generally around the 5.6-5.7% mark.

Wisconsin’s No. 1 defense is one problem for Ohio State, but another big challenge for the Buckeyes lies on the other side of the ball.
On Saturday, the Ohio State defense will face its biggest threat of the season in Badgers’ junior running back Jonathan Taylor. Taylor, a Heisman Candidate running back, essentially runs Wisconsin’s offense. The Buckeye defense has the task of attempting to limit a back who is just one of three players to ever reach the 5,000 career rushing mark before his senior season.
