COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - If a championship season is determined by a play here and there, then Urban Meyer wants his fourth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes to know what's riding on Saturday night's big showdown with No. 23 Wisconsin.

The teams have a history of playing tight games that teeter on one dramatic moment.

Two years ago, the Buckeyes' Braxton Miller avoided a rush and hurled a 40-yard touchdown pass with 20 seconds left to win it. Last year the Badgers' Curt Phillips flipped a 5-yard TD pass to Jacob Pedersen to force overtime, where Ohio State won 21-14.

Now Miller, back from a knee injury, may start in place of red-hot Kenny Guiton.

It's going to be an interesting week.
