“The Big Ten game is tougher, it’s more physical up front, no disrespect (to other conferences),” Wilson said the other day.

“When you come into the Big Ten game, it’s a line of scrimmage league, it’s a tough league,” he said. “It wears you out week after week after week. We start off with a big challenge with a great line of scrimmage team on both sides coming in when Wisconsin enters the ‘Shoe’.

The message? Let’s wait and see what happens.

Insight

STOP OHIO STATE: The Badgers are once again built around a defense that finished 2021 as the No. 1 in the nation.

Granted, it’s only three non-conference games, but Wisconsin is limiting opponents to 246 total yards — 76 rushing and 170 passing yards — per game so far. Seven players have interceptions.

Ohio State, after last week’s explosion, is the best offensive team in the nation, averaging 8.44 yards per play and 563.3 yards per game.

“It’s one thing (to say) ‘it’s their pattern,’ but the players understand that and it allows them to really play,” Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said. “And I think that’s what they do really well.”

Seasoned badgers: The Buckeyes’ revamped defense will have to stop the run to slow Wisconsin down.

Running back Braelon Allen picked up where he left off after rushing for 1,268 yards and eight touchdowns in his freshman year, third-best in the Big Ten. He averaged 110 yards per game and 6.6 per carry in the first three games.

Quarterback Graham Mertz is in his second year as a starter.

“He’s going to be the best quarterback we’ve seen. He’s going to be the best running back we’ve seen,” Day said. “There are a lot of ‘best we’ve seen so far’ (with Wisconsin).”

TREVEYON IS WELL: AP Preseason All-American running back TreVeyon Henderson left last week’s game after Ohio State’s first offensive series with an unspecified injury.

Day said it was something that bothered the second-year player, and the decision was made to hold him for the remainder of what appeared to be a lopsided game.

Day said this week that Henderson’s injury “was a short-term thing” and that he should play this week.

SATURDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: The Buckeyes will play the fourth of five straight home games to start the season and the third with a late start on Saturday.

“It’s been good for recruiting,” Day said of the night games, which draw large national television audiences. “These are long days. I like it when a midday game ends around 4:30 p.m. and you can go home and enjoy the rest of the day. But the electricity in the Horseshoe for a night game, it doesn’t There’s nothing like it. And it’s give and take, I guess.
