Road Woes Simply Don’t Exist for Ohio State

Ohio State has a difficult task ahead taking on the Wisconsin Badgers in Madison on Saturday, but the Buckeyes are the best road team in the country. They have won 19 consecutive true road games with their last road loss coming in November 2011.

  • Ohio State is 4-0 SU and ATS in its last 4 games against Wisconsin.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Wisconsin's last 8 games at home.
  • Wisconsin is 4-0 ATS in its last 4 games against teams with winning records.

Ohio State was due for a down game and that came last week against Indiana. The Buckeyes passing attack looked lackluster in that outing, but the rushing attack picked up some of the slack by accounting for four touchdowns. J.T. Barrett had a career-high 26 carries but went just 9-for-21 passing.

Wisconsin mercifully had a bye last week, as the Badgers were coming off back-to-back road games against Michigan State and Michigan. Though the Badgers offense leaves a lot to be desired, their stellar defense – which has held opponents to 12.2 points per game – keeps the team in every game.
