The Ohio State Buckeyes have been one of the most dominant teams in college football over the last decade.

The Buckeyes had a permanent spot in the top of the college football polls and always had a shot at the National Championship. When it came to the Big Ten, no other team had a shot at the title, and always played to finish second.

That is all over with now, and it will be clear when the Buckeyes take the field today.

The Wisconsin Badgers are going to dismantle the Buckeyes and prove that there is a new team ready to take over the Big Ten.

The Buckeyes' offense is stale and has difficulties scoring against tough defenses. The once-intimidating Buckeye defense is tired because they are on the field for the majority of the game, due to the struggling offense.

It could get ugly at home today when they host a bunch of angry Badgers.

The Wisconsin Badgers had a legitimate chance to finish the season undefeated until they ran into Michigan State. The Spartans needed a lucky bounce off of a Hail Mary pass to take down the Badgers, giving Wisconsin its first loss of the season.

Now, with that game behind them, Russell Wilson and the Badgers will take their aggression out on the Buckeyes.

The Badgers have the edge in every facet of the game. They have a dominating offensive line, a bruising rushing attack, and a mobile signal-caller.

This combination will lead to a big win for the Badgers and signify the beginning of the end of the Buckeyes' dominance.
