Trailing 21-7 at halftime, the Ohio State Buckeyes outscored Wisconsin 27-0 in the second half for a 34-21 Big 10 Championship win at Indianapolis.

.

The Badgers had 432 total yards and 200 rushing, but OSU's defense held Wisconsin to only 6 yards in the second half. Jonathan Taylor ran wild for 135 yards in the first half, but had only 13 in the last two quarters.

.

Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields connected on 19/31 passes for 299 yards and three touchdowns, while running back J.K. Dobbins rushed 33 times for 172 yards and one TD. OSU had 492 total yards.

.

Ohio State improves to (13-0) and wins the outright Big 10 title for a third straight season, something no Big 10 team has done since the league started in 1896.

The poor first half apparently cost the Buckeyes their top seed in the College Football Playoffs, after #2 LSU easily defeated #4 Georgia in the SEC title game. The selection committee has selected LSU, OSU, Clemson and Oklahoma has their top 4 teams.

.

The #1 LSU will face #4 seed Oklahoma in the afternoon on December 28th for the national semis in Atlanta, while #2 Ohio State plays #3 seed and defending national champ Clemson at 8pm on December 28th in Glendale, Arizona. The national championship will be decided on January 13th in New Orleans.
