If there was any doubt that No. 3 Ohio State is the best team in the Big Ten this season, the Buckeyes sent a message on Saturday. Ohio State overcame a slow start in windy and rainy conditions to rout No. 13 Wisconsin 38-7.

The Buckeyes (8-0, 5-0) didn’t break into the scoring column until getting a field goal halfway through the second quarter. They scored their first touchdown in the final minute of the half when quarterback Justin Fields found Chris Olave for a 27-yard score to make it 10-0. Wisconsin, which had only 72 yards of offense in the first half, caught a break to open the second. The Badgers (6-2, 3-2) blocked an Ohio State punt to set themselves up with a short field. A three-play, 30-yard touchdown drive ended with a Jack Coan dime to A.J. Taylor from 26 yards out. And that’s when the good times stopped for Wisconsin.

Chase Young and the Buckeyes defense put the clamps on the Badgers offense, and the Ohio State offense responded with 28 unanswered points. Justin Fields finished with 167 yards passing, 28 yards rushing and three total touchdowns. J.K. Dobbins rushed for 163 yards and two touchdowns while also catching three passes for 58 yards. The Ohio State defense held Wisconsin tailback Jonathan Taylor to 52 yards on 20 carries.
