The #15 Wisconsin Badgers national title hopes may be dead, but their Big Ten title hopes are well and alive. Their route to the inaugural Big Ten Championship and a BCS bowl hits another potential barricade this weekend when they take on the Ohio State Buckeyes.

At 4-3 and 1-2 in the conference, this Ohio State team is not your typical Buckeye team. In fact, this will be the first time since 1963 that the Badgers enter the game as the only ranked team.

How Many Points This Year? Indiana vs. #4 Wisconsin (Game Preview)

With the outcome basically decided, the only question left is how many points can the Badgers score or how many push-ups will Bucky have to do, how ever you want to look at it.

Last year, it was an astonishing 83 points (or 573 push-ups), the most-ever against an Indiana football team. With an even better offense led by Heisman Candidate Russell Wilson (@RussellManiaXVI) and a Hoosiers defense ranked close to last in the Big Ten (421.5 yards per game), the possibilities are really endless.
