The Wisconsin Badgers are rolling after a 3-0 week that vaulted them 10 spots to #13 in the latest AP Poll.
They will now get to face another ranked opponent tonight, this time #16 Ohio State in a possible revenge game for the Badgers. The last team to beat the Badgers are the Buckeyes in Columbus a month ago. In that game, E.J. Liddell dropped 28 points on the Badgers. Johnny Davis scored 24 points in the 18-point loss.
Since that loss, the Badgers have won five games in a row. A win over the Buckeyes tonight would be another nice win to the Badgers’ postseason resume.

Wisconsin vs Ohio State Prediction Tonight
The Badgers’ last game against the Buckeyes is one they’d like to forget. An 18-point loss in Columbus was a game that I and probably a lot of Wisconsin fans, thought showed the Badgers’ true colors and that they were mostly overachieving for most of the season.
But since then, they’ve rattled off five-straight wins over some quality opponents, including a win over #3 Purdue at Mackey Arena.
Since then, I’ve learned that this team is for real and I am getting my hopes up once again.
After the Ohio State loss a month ago, Johnny Davis called his team out, calling for that third guy to step up outside of himself and Brad Davison.
Well, I’m not going to say the third guy has shown up because it seems to be someone different every night that has shown up, but if it’s anyone I’m going to say it’s Tyler Wahl. He’s having a very nice season on both sides of the ball.
Chris Vogt has also been huge, and the Badgers are going to need him and Crowl to play very well tonight because they are going to have to defend E.J. Liddell and Zed Key in the paint tonight. Liddell is averaging 20.1 points per game this year while Key is averaging 9.3. The bigs are going to have their hands full again tonight.
Being at home for a big game is helpful. The students are all back from break and will hopefully pack the Kohl Center tonight for this big game. Johnny Davis is still playing at an extremely high level and I just don’t see anyone on Ohio State slowing him down.
I think the Badgers’ defense is going to make things hard for the Buckeyes tonight, causing a few scoring droughts and giving the Badgers plenty of chances to take control of the game.
I’m taking Wisconsin and the spread and taking the over as well.
