UW, OSU stick to the plan

The badger football team hasn't played at ohio state since 2013, but they're back in columbus this weekend.

Wisconsin and ohio state play this morning at 11 am -- it's the national game on fox.

And that's where we find our jay wilson ahead of kick- off.

Any time a team like wisconsin plays a team like ohio state, it's thought to be a battle of underrated and overachieving players against the cream of the crop blue chippers coming out of high school..

They're doing great things now so i'm moreso excited to play ohio state instead of like the five-star recruits."
