MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin had its way with Ohio State in the first quarter, and the Buckeyes could do very little about it.

Although the Buckeyes essentially had the game's first possession because of David Gilreath's kick return touchdown, Wisconsin still dominated the time of possession (11:18). Wisconsin had nine first downs and 122 yards in the quarter, just incredible numbers if you consider the opposition.

The Badgers continue to pile it on early in the second quarter and lead 21-0 following, get this, a 19-play, 89-yard scoring drive that ate up 10:04. John Moffitt and his linemates have been nothing short of spectacular.

If Wisconsin can simple hold onto the ball and continue to run the ball with effectiveness, it'll be extremely tough for Ohio State to rally because of the clock factor. Turnovers killed Wisconsin last year in Columbus, but the Badgers haven't committed a giveaway for 18 plus quarters.

This likely will be a limited-possession game, so Terrelle Pryor and the Buckeyes have to answer in a hurry.
