Wisconsin was completely embarrassed by rival Ohio State in the Big10 Championship game, 59-0. Down to their third-string quarterback, Ohio State was still able to compile 558 yards of total offense. Wisconsin’s defense was gashed for over 300 rushing yards. Running back and Heisman trophy finalist Melvin Gordon was limited to just 76 yards on 26 carries. Gordon has arguably been college football’s best player, compiling 2,336 rushing yards and 26 touchdowns. Look for Gordon to bounce back after a disappointing Big10 Championship game performance.
While fans can expect to pay top prices to attend the Outback Bowl, a match-up between Auburn’s rushing attack and Wisconsin rushing attack will be entertaining. Auburn will need to figure out a way to slow down Gordon who will probably be playing his last game as a Badger.
