    The Game Week. I know. F*ck Michigan first and foremost.

    But I'm starting to see a handful of peeps coming to my city for this game. Let's get a roll call and I'll be happy to show people around/coordinate a meetup. Shoot me a message if you need any tips or recommendations that week. I'll even extend the invite to @Bucky32 if he makes it down again.

    Let's Beat Michigan. Beat Wisconsin. And see what happens from there.

    The Wisconsin-Ohio State Big Ten Championship Game is happening, and I have no idea how it’s going to go

    This shapes up as a heavyweight fight.

    [​IMG]

    Wisconsin clinched the Big Ten West in Week 11, and Ohio State ensured Saturday that it’ll meet the Badgers in the conference championship game, Dec. 2 in Indianapolis. The Buckeyes trounced Illinois, 52-14, to lock up the league’s East division. Head-to-head tiebreakers mean OSU wins the division no matter what it does against rival Michigan on Rivalry Weekend.

    As long as Wisconsin beats Minnesota next weekend, the undefeated Badgers will be playing for a Playoff berth when they meet Ohio State. Wisconsin dominated MichiganSaturday to stay perfect.

    In Indy, there’s a good chance Ohio State will have a Playoff shot, too. The Buckeyes have two ugly losses, and no two-loss team has made the field before. But there’s been enough chaos that OSU remains in the thick of things. The Pac-12 is out of the race already, and the Big 12 could miss out if Oklahoma doesn’t win its death trap of a league title game.

    Not that it makes a difference, but these teams have done this before.

    You’ll hear and read lots of pregame talk about the 2014 Big Ten Championship Game, where Ohio State beat Wisconsin 59-0 and gained enough of a boost to leap both Baylor and TCU for the fourth seed in the Playoff. Ohio State won it all that year.



    None of the teams’ key contributors in that game will play in this one. Wisconsin’s coach is now Paul Chryst, not Gary Andersen. But anyway, it’ll come up.


    The teams also played in 2016, when Ohio State won in overtime in Madison.

    Ohio State will probably be favored, despite Wisconsin’s better record.

    The Buckeyes were more than a touchdown favorite in some early odds that bookmakers circulated a few weeks ago, in the event this game ever arose. They’ll probably start game week favored by something less than that TD, unless either team has a big injury or does something weird in Week 13.

    Both teams are really good. The Buckeyes entered this weekend No. 1 in the country in advanced stat S&P+, and the Badgers were No. 3.

    Ohio State has a lot more talent by the measure of recruiting rankings, with four- and five-star players all over the field. Wisconsin has few of those. But the Badgers dohave one of the best running backs in the country in freshman Jonathan Taylor. And Ohio State’s defense did just give up 55 points to Iowa a few weeks ago.

    Most importantly, the Badgers have an elite defense that should keep them from getting blown out. They entered Week 12 with the country’s No. 3 scoring D, allowing 13 points per game. They haven’t allowed more than 24 in any game. If you’re looking for another Ohio State rout, you probably will not find it at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    I had to find a spot for 8 mo fo's so I was able to get section 522 row 1 for something less than the GDP of a small 3rd world nation. Seats look decent with a good view. I usually spend the money and get down close but 8 tickets is a big number.

    My Cbus ticket guy is going to see what he can do about finding me 2 sets of 4 in a better spot. If he does I'll just sell these.

    See you guys there

    Using Shoowin to purchase multiple lower level tickets, I can tell you he dropped a good amount of coin on it. Reservation price (like 75?) per ticket plus face value (190) for each.

    Still, much cheaper than buying those seats outright.
