It was widely believed that No. 3 Ohio State would beat No. 13 Wisconsin. But blowing them out in a 38-7 win was better than almost anyone expected.

Anyone except Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields that is.

Speaking to the media after the game, Fields felt that the Buckeyes actually could have done even better if not for the inclement weather.

In fact, Fields went so far as to say that Ohio State could have dropped 50 points on the Badgers.

"Our motto as an offense is nobody can stop us but us.

"In all honesty, we could've put up 50."

It was an all-around dominance performance by the team on nearly all fronts, but the defense had arguably the best performance.

Star defensive end Chase Young made a Heisman Trophy case with four sacks and two forced fumbles in the win. The run defense held Wisconsin's ace running back Jonathan Taylor to 52 yards on 20 carries - the third-lowest total of his career.

Running back JK Dobbins had a huge game for Ohio State, recording over 220 yards from scrimmage and two rushing TDs.

As for Fields, he didn't throw the ball much and finished the game with just 12 completions for 167 yards. But he had 28 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground.

Ohio State has a bye next week before returning to Ohio Stadium on November 9 against Maryland.
