Four things to watch as the Ohio State football program goes for the Big Ten championship against No. 4 Wisconsin, with College Football Playoff hopes on the line.

Saturday’s Big Ten Championship game is Ohio State’s final opportunity to state their case for the College Football Playoff.

Unfortunately, thanks to Alabama’s loss in the Iron Bowl, the Buckeyes do not control their own destiny. They’re going to need some help earning a berth in the playoff.

With that said, the Buckeyes still need to handle their own business, and there’s a lot at stake.

With a victory, Ohio State would clinch their first conference championship since 2014 and only the second since Urban Meyer came to Columbus.

What should you watch for against the No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers in Indianapolis?
