No. 1 Ohio State beat No. 8 Wisconsin 34–21 to win its third consecutive Big Ten championship title at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday night.

The Buckeyes rallied in the second half to take home the conference crown and make a strong case for holding their No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings.

Wisconsin dominated the first half and looked like it could upset the Buckeyes. The Badgers opened the game with Jonathan Taylor's 44-yard touchdown run. Quarterback Jack Coan showed off his wheels during a 14-play drive before adding his first rushing TD of the game with a 14-yard run.
