COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A look at three Ohio State players who will be critical as the program prepares to hit the road and take on Wisconsin with a chance to clinch a division title on Saturday at Camp Randall (TV: ABC, 3:30 p.m.).
Phil Sears/US PresswireOhio state senior defensive lineman John Simon will look to pad his sack total this week against third-string Wisconsin quarterback Curt Phillips.
- The basics: The senior defensive lineman is obviously going to play a critical role in stopping a high-powered rushing attack, but his biggest chance to potentially swing the outcome could come when Wisconsin elects to pass. Simon has just missed on some big opportunities to pad his sack totals, but even when he hasn’t got individual credit, he’s still been making critical contributions with his tireless effort chasing the quarterback.
