Ohio State at Wisconsin

Ohio State and QB Terrelle Pryor head to Wisconsin in Week 7 to take on a Badgers defense that has struggled against the pass.

Ohio State offense vs. Wisconsin defense
• Buckeyes offensive coordinator Jim Bollman has made positive in-season adjustments based on the strengths and weaknesses of his players. For example, RB Brandon Saine is hesitant as a runner and appears to lack natural instincts but excels in the passing game. Saine runs good routes, shows good hands and has burst after the catch, so his carries have dwindled and his role in the passing game has increased. That means Dan Herron has taken over as the No. 1 ball carrier. Herron is at his best making one cut and hitting the crease, and while he is not as big as Saine he does run harder. The Badgers will have to close quickly against Herron because he has the top-end speed to go the distance when he sees a crease and makes a quick cut.
