My take: I still can't believe what I witnessed. The Buckeyes, you were 4 point underdogs to the Badgers, came out with fire and passion that outmatched anything they had done during the previous 12 games. Cardale Jones, the MVP for the Big Ten Championship game, surprised with his accurate and extraordinarily powerful arm. He had time from his excellent offensive line, who have gelled nicely as the year has gone on as well as Ezekiel Elliot, out outplayed the much more hyped Melvin Gordon by a mile. The defense, led by Joey Bosa and Michael Bennett, played their greatest game of the year if not one of the best in years for a Buckeyes team. Hats off to Luke Fickell and Chris Ash who came up with a near perfect game plan against the Badgers offense. The Buckeyes also made a monster of a case that they should be in the final spot for the 4 team playoff in 2015.
Play of the night 2: Michael Bennett punching the ball out of Melvin Gordon's arms, causing a fumble which was pounced on by Joey Bosa in the end zone to make it 38-0 and seal the victory for the Buckeyes in the first half.
MVP: Along with being the game MVP, Cardale Jones was also my MVP. The kid from Cleveland's Glenville High played with passion and determination in not only the biggest game of his life but also his first start of his Buckeye career. He was an inspiration not only to his teammates but to the millions watching the game last night.
Co-MVP's: Michael Bennett and Joey Bosa. They inspired the entire defense all night and came up with the game clinching fumble and touchdown.
Next up: to be determined. On The Mark will have an update as soon as the playoff committee decides their final top 4 playoff teams.
