The Ohio State Buckeyes remain undefeated as they defeated the Wisconsin Badgers, 21-14, in an overtime thriller at Camp Randall Stadium. The win advances the Buckeyes to 11-0 as they turn their attention to a Thanksgiving clash against the rival Michigan Wolverines.
Buckeyes running back Carlos Hyde led the team in scoring, which included a 2-yard touchdown run in overtime to put the game away. Hyde finished the ball game with 87 yards and two scores.
While Hyde led the Buckeyes offense, it was the Ohio State defensive unit that deserves credit for the win.
Wisconsin had a late surge to force the overtime.
Badgers quarterback Curt Phillips found Jacob Pederson for a five-yard touchdown with just eight seconds remaining in regulation, but they fell short in the extra time.
Ohio State is ineligible for postseason bowl games and the conference championship, but the win over Wisconsin secured the only title that the Buckeyes can earn this season. The Buckeyes take home the Big Ten Leaders division title. They will look to finish off their season with a perfect record when they host the Wolverines next week.
Despite the loss, there was one bright spot for the Badgers. Star running back Montee Ball tied the FBS career touchdowns record (78) on a seven-yard run to pay dirt.
