Coming into this week, the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes have had just one game that they faced a true test against a team that came in their game in Norman, Oklahoma, against the Sooners, or at last thought they had a true road test. In their first two conference games, the scarlet and gray went up against arguably the worst team in the Big Ten (Rutgers) and an up-and-coming team (Indiana). This weekend, the Buckeyes face a very tough road test when they travel to Camp Randall to take on the Wisconsin Badgers.
Ahead of Saturday night’s huge primetime matchup, the Ohio State video and graphic team released an incredible trailer. As if Buckeye Nation needed any other reason to want it to be Saturday night, this video will only get them even more eager. The trailer includes middle linebacker Raekwon McMillan and quarterback J.T. Barrett being leaders and energizing the team, coaches getting the team amped, some of the best highlights from the season so far including touchdowns, interceptions, sacks, and some hard-hitting plays, and head coach Urban Meyer talking (errr yelling) at his team to get them ready for the upcoming game.
In case you were wondering if the Buckeyes would be ready for the matchup against the Badgers, Barrett has you covered and will make sure the team is ready for one of the biggest games and arguably the toughest road game of the season. In the video, you can hear him get his teammate’s minds right heading into Saturday.
“We have to play like it’s the last time, every time.”
Obviously, it’s not their last time. But then again, it could possibly be many of the player’s last games in Madison and I can guarantee you that not a single Buckeye wants their last game at Wisconsin to be a loss.
For me, the video made me want to run through a wall because it needs to be Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. What did it do to you?
Don’t forget, ESPN’s College GameDay will be at the University of Wisconsin Saturday morning from 9 a.m. ET to noon, ahead of all of the college football action and the primetime matchup between the Buckeyes and Badgers.
