EDGE: Ohio State *** LINEBACKERS Wisconsin: The Badgers led the nation in scoring defense in 2015 (13.7 ppg), ranked fourth in that category in 2016 (15.6 ppg) and rank second this season (12.0 ppg). Jerome Baker leads this unit with 51 tackles to rank third on the team.

Taylor has 1,806 yards and needs 120 yards to surpass ex-Oklahoma star Adrian Peterson at the top of the FBS freshman rushing list. Dobbins is the fourth Ohio State freshman to top 1,000 yards rushing (1,190).

Ohio State: The Buckeyes are 13th nationally in rushing and first in the Big Ten at 250.3 yards per game. He forms a nice tandem with Mike Weber, who has 602 yards rushing, and has really found his groove down the stretch.

QUARTERBACK Wisconsin: Alex Hornibrook has had his moments this year. Hornibrook must avoid interceptions and needs to hit some passes down field to open room for a strong rushing game. Ohio State: This unit has a core base of six wide receivers who divide reps and all of whom have caught at least 17 passes with at least two touchdown grabs. Parris Campbell tops the team in reception yardage (530) while ranking second with 38 receptions.

The sophomore ranks 10th among Power Five quarterbacks in pass efficiency rating (155.9), completing 63.9 percent of his passes for 2,157 yards with 21 touchdowns. Don’t sleep on Johnnie Dixon, either, who has turned eight of his 17 receptions into touchdowns.

OSU may have a backup signal-caller again, which is one of many storylines in this game. If he can’t go, redshirt freshman Dwayne Haskins will be the man. The captain holds, among others, school records for passing yards (9,109) and Big Ten records for TDs responsible for (142) and touchdown passes (102). *** RECEIVERS Wisconsin: The Badgers boast one of the best sets of wideouts they’ve had in years. Taylor, true freshman Danny Davis and redshirt freshman Kendric Pryor have been revelations.

Here is a look at which team has the edge in each unit. Haskins is a redshirt freshman who took over last week and sealed the deal in a win at Michigan. Even with Jazz Peavy and Quintez Cephus, the team’s leading receiver, out, this unit hasn’t skipped a beat. And Troy Fumagalli is one of the nation’s top tight ends. Hill leads the way, pacing the team with 51 receptions and is second with 519 receiving yards.

Gaglianone, who missed all but three games last season due to injury, has converted 22 of his last 25 field-goal attempts, dating back to the 2015 Holiday Bowl. Ohio State: Kicker Sean Nuernberger is 30-for-41 in his career in field goals, including 14-of-17 this year. Find him on Twitter and Facebook, and send him questions to his weekly mailbag.

He has smashed the Big Ten record for consecutive extra points, nailing 171 consecutively.

Safety Damon Webb is the veteran in the secondary with 25 consecutive starts.
