Ohio State is technically the road team in this evening’s Big Ten Championship Game. The No. 1 Buckeyes will be wearing their white uniforms against Wisconsin.
It will not feel like a road game for Ryan Day’s team, though. It’s technically a neutral-site game, but Buckeye Nation appears to have invaded Indianapolis.
Lucas Oil Stadium will be covered in scarlet and gray tonight.
Ohio State fans were everywhere on Friday night.
If the nightlife scene in Indianapolis is any indication, Ohio State is going to have a 95/5 crowd advantage in the Big Ten championship game.

The ticket projections are calling for a massive Ohio State crowd advantage, too.
A fan forecast from @VividSeats projects the crowd split at the Big Ten championship game to be about 93/7 in favor of Ohio State. Might as well play it in Columbus.

This isn’t really surprising. Ohio State is a big favorite playing for a spot in the College Football Playoff spot. Wisconsin is likely Rose Bowl-bound regardless of what happens tonight.
The Buckeyes and the Badgers will kick off at 8 p.m. E.T.
The game will be on FOX.
