Two years ago, Wisconsin had their shot at Ohio State. The undefeated Badgers were one win — vs. Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship — away from the College Football Playoff. They lost, 27-21.
After stumbling to eight wins in 2018, Wisconsin is back in playoff position. After throttling Michigan State in Week 7, they visit Illinois before their first of potentially two playoff-clinching chances at Ohio State. The Badgers aren't guaranteed a playoff spot if they win in Columbus in Week 9, nor are they still guaranteed a Big Ten West title if they lose in Columbus, though they are in great playoff position.
On this week's High Motor podcast, we break down Wisconsin's good playoff position, why the Badgers might have two shots at Ohio State to reach the playoff, and why the Big Ten could be a two-bid league.
