Undefeated Badgers face ninth-ranked Ohio State Saturday

The Wisconsin football team will have its hands full Saturday, as it tries to keep its unbeaten record intact at ninth-ranked Ohio State.

Junior linebacker Blake Sorenson says the key on defense is to contain Buckeyes' quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

He's the third-leading passer in the Big Ten, with a completion percentage of 57.9.

Pryor has thrown seven touchdown passes in his last three games, all victories over Indiana, Illinois and Toledo.

Pryor is also Ohio State's leading rusher with 298 yards and three touchdowns. On offense, Zach Brown will again start at tailback with John Clay getting the bulk of the carries.

Coach Bret Bielema says freshman running back Montee Ball should also get some more playing time, depending on how the game flows.

Kevin Zeitler will again start at right guard for Wisconsin in place of Bill Nagy, who's coming off a foot injury.

Nagy is healthy now, and Bielema says he should get some good playing time against the Buckeyes.

Both teams are 2-0 in conference play. Wisconsin is 5-0 overall. Ohio State is 4-1.
