Ohio State vs. Wisconsin 2012: Buckeyes fans ready for Michigan

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Ohio State beat Wisconsin to improve to 11-0 and now looks forward to Michigan next week.

The Ohio State Buckeyes beat Wisconsin to improve to 11-0 on the season on Saturday, but the Buckeyes still have one more goal to accomplish this season: avenging last season's loss to Michigan next week.

The Wisconsin game provided a good, physical test for the Buckeyes and the win provides a chance to enter the Michigan game as an undefeated team, a rarity in the rivalry, Ohio State blog Land-Grant Holy Land writes.

"It was ugly. It was dirty. It was brutal. The Buckeyes and Badgers combined for 17 punts in a classic Big Ten slug fest. Montee Ball ran for 191 yards on 39 carries and a score, and Curt Phillips confounded the Buckeyes on a late drive to tie the game, sending Ohio State to overtime for the second time this year. But, after hibernating for three quarters, the Buckeye offense woke up at the exact right time, as Carlos Hyde ran for his second score of the game. The Buckeye defense needed a stop, and John Simon (4 sacks, and a huge factor all day) and the Silver Bullets would be equal to the task, stopping the Badgers on fourth down, sealing the victory. The Buckeyes leave Madison and enter Hate Week, as The Game looms next Saturday. But they will do it as they have only twice in the last ten years - as an undefeated football team."
