College Football Week 7 Schedule: It’s all about Ohio State vs. Wisconsin

The Badgers hope to upset the #2-ranked Buckeyes in Madison this week.

Sure, there are a pair of top-ten matchups in college football today, but there’s one that feels like a much bigger deal than the other - especially in the Midwest. College Gameday is set up at the base of Bascom Hill on the University of Wisconsin campus this morning, as the 8th-ranked Badgers host the #2 Ohio State Buckeyes in a huge Big Ten matchup with potential playoff implications.

The Badgers and Buckeyes are clearly in the top tier of the Big Ten this year, a group which consists of four teams - Michigan and Nebraska included - which all sit in the top ten and have College Football Playoff aspirations. For the Buckeyes, a loss here is no death blow to those hopes, as they still play both of those other two top teams before the regular season wraps up. The Badgers, however, lost at Michigan two weeks ago and face Nebraska in another home night game in two weeks; a second loss could kill their playoff hopes.

The other big game is an SEC matchup pitting top-ranked Alabama against Tennessee, whose comeback magic finally ran out at Texas A&M last week in double-overtime.

For Wisconsin fans: make sure to check out Bucky’s 5th Quarter, the SB Nation blog covering the Badgers. Enjoy this great day in college football!
