Ohio State Battles Back from 14-Point Halftime Deficit to Defeat Wisconsin, 34-21, and Win Third Straight Big Ten Championship

INDIANAPOLIS – For the first half of Saturday’s Big Ten Championship Game, it looked like it might not be Ohio State’s night. Then, as the Buckeyes did in their first game against Wisconsin on Oct. 26 and have in so many games this season, they took over in the second half.

Ohio State trailed Wisconsin by 14 points at halftime, but outscored the Badgers 27-0 in the second half to win the game, 34-21, for its third consecutive Big Ten championship.

With the win, Ohio State improved to 13-0 on the season and locked up its berth in the College Football Playoff.
