Ohio State has two games remaining in the 2012 season and if you ask junior receiver Corey "Philly" Brown (left), it's "The Game" followed by "The Game."
"I don't want to go on record and say I hate Wisconsin more than Michigan but I hate Wisconsin just as much as Michigan," Brown said. "Ever since I've been here they've been a nightmare. They ruined our perfect season (in 2010) and we had a heck of a game last year (33-29 Buckeye win).. that came down to the end."
Ohio State and Wisconsin meet at 3:30 Saturday in Camp Randall Stadium. The Badgers have already clinched a berth in the Big Ten title game. They will represent the Leaders Division because both Ohio State and Penn State are not eligible for postseason play. A Buckeye victory however, would give Ohio State the outright Leaders Division title.
"We're co-winners (of the division) as of now but if we win this game then we win it," Coach Urban Meyer said. "That will be brought up. That's really important to us."
Meyer has experienced the gameday atmosphere at Wisconsin as a graduate assistant on Earle Bruce's staff in the 1980's but this will be his first experience as a head coach.
"It's interesting hearing our players talk about it...especially the guys I listen to," Meyer said. "The guys who have been in the big games. It's real interesting. This is a rivalry game...and it's a rivalry game because of who you're playing and what they've done the last few years."
