Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor visits with two-time Heisman Trophy winner Archie Griffin after the Big Ten championship game.

Taylor takes off for 44-yard TD (0:24)
Ruckert makes amazing one-handed TD catch (0:20)
Cephus' incredible catch leads to a Coan TD (0:46)
Ohio State runs fake punt to perfection (0:15)

Wisconsin leads 21-7 at halftime after excellent performances by RB Jonathan Taylor, QB Jack Coan and others. Paul Chryst's creative game plan and the execution from the offense has led to 294 yards, including 9.2 yards per rush. Coan has hit several big throws and been effective with his feet, and Wisconsin's offensive line is making Chase Young a nonfactor. The Badgers defense has three sacks and a forced fumble against Justin Fields, clearly limited by a knee injury.
