Ohio State entered Saturday as the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff rankings, but the Buckeyes have looked anything but that through the first 20 minutes of the Big Ten title game. Wisconsin is giving Ohio State all it can handle early.
Wisconsin has a 14-0 lead on touchdowns by Jonathan Taylor and Jack Coan. The Badgers have looked great on both sides of the ball. They’ve also looked like a team that doesn’t have anything to lose.
Ohio State may have a loss to give when it comes to the playoff, but the loss can’t be lopsided. The Buckeyes are officially on the ropes in Indianapolis.
As you’d imagine, Ohio State fans are starting to lose their minds. The rest of Twitter is having fun with the whole thing.

Wisconsin lost to Ohio State earlier this year, but the Badgers also lost to Illinois in a stunner. The idea of them getting in with an 11-2 record is possible but unlikely.
Ohio State, meanwhile, is definitely in danger of losing the No. 1 seed – even if it comes back to win this one. LSU looked dominant against Georgia in the SEC title game earlier on Saturday.
