The last time the Buckeyes played the same team twice in one season was 1975.
Ryan Day said Ohio State needs to prepare as hard as ever for Saturday’s game against Wisconsin, which will be its first in-season rematch since its 1975 Rose Bowl loss to UCLA. https://t.co/90Vu99uYiP

Ohio State topped UCLA 41-20 in that year’s regular season non-conference meeting.
But when the two teams met again in the Rose Bowl, it was victory for the Bruins, 23-10.
Will history repeat itself when Ohio State and Wisconsin meet again in the Big Ten Championship game? Are the players even aware of this obscure bit of trivia from 1975? Can the Badgers beat the Buckeyes?
