The game of the 2019 Big Ten football season - to date, anyway - is taking place in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday afternoon, when Ohio State hosts Wisconsin. The Buckeyes and the Badgers are both legitimate conference title contenders and College Football Playoff hopefuls.

Wisconsin's shocking loss to Illinois this past weekend has put somewhat of a damper on the hype for this one, though it's still a huge showdown.

ESPN analyst Bill Connelly has unveiled his prediction for the game.
