Buckeyes win fourth straight Big Ten Conference Championship game, defeats Wildcats

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher  The No. 4 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes defeated No. 14 Northwestern Wildcats in the Discover Big Ten Conference Championship game. The Buckeyes won 22-10 over the Wildcats at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The Buckeyes have won four straight games in this contest. However, this year, it was unique, as there was a good chance — at least for a few days — that Ohio State may not have been able to play in the game.  The Big Ten Conference had to chance their policies from earlier this season to allow the Buckeyes to play in this game. Before the season, the conference said that a team had to play in six games to be eligible for the Conference Championship game.  However, due to the cancellation of the Michigan Wolverines game, the Buckeyes had just five games. The Big Ten Conference then changed their policies to allow Ohio State into this game. The Buckeyes are 5-1 all-time in the Big Ten Conference Championship games.   With the win, the Buckeyes improved to 6-0 on the season. The loss dropped the Wildcats to 6-2 overall.  Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields went 12 of 27 for 114 yards. He also had two interceptions.  Trey Sermon had 29 carries for 331 yards and two touchdowns. Julian Fleming had four receptions for 53 yards.  Wildcats quarterback Peyton Ramsey went 24 of 37 for 224 yards. Like Fields, he also had two interceptions.  Cam Porter had 16 carries for 61 yards and a touchdown. Ramaud Chiaokhiao-Bowman had eight receptions for 103 yards.  Sermon scored two rushing touchdowns for the Buckeyes. Kicker Blake Haubeil also made three field goals.  Cam Porter scored the lone Wildcats touchdown. Kicker Charlie Kuhbander also made a field goal.
