Ohio State and Wisconsin are a couple of hours away from kicking off in one of the biggest Big Ten games of the regular season. It looks like the Buckeyes and Badgers could be doing so in some bad weather.

Rain is expected for this afternoon's contest at Ohio Stadium.

Ohio State and Wisconsin are set to kick off at noon E.T. and it should be a wet one inside The Horseshoe.

Eleven Warriors had more on the forecast for the big showdown in Columbus:

It's still looking like rain is in store, but it's not quite the lock it was a few days ago as the forecast calls for a high of 51º and a 56% chance of precipitation for the noon kickoff in Columbus.

The temperature will rise into the mid-50s as the game moves into the second half, with the odds of rain hovering somewhere in the 45-60% range. It's not a lock, but if you're going to the game, bring a rain jacket.

Wisconsin relies on the run more than Ohio State, so a nasty forecast could favor the Badgers, though they're entering the contest as a heavy underdog.

Ohio State and Wisconsin are set to kick off at noon E.T.

The game will be on FOX.
