MADISON, Wis. The Wisconsin-Ohio State football series has been so captivating in recent years that television executives believe it warrants the national spotlight and a prime time audience. Again. Wisconsin will play Ohio State at 7 p.m. on Sept. 28 in Columbus, Ohio, marking the fourth time in the past six seasons the teams will have played a nationally televised night game. The Big Ten's ABCESPN prime-time schedule was released Monday. The game will be broadcast by ABC, ESPN or ESPN2 and will be the fifth time since 2003 that Wisconsin-Ohio State has been televised at night. It represents the ninth straight year Wisconsin has played at least one night game. Wisconsin is 2-2 in night games against Ohio State, and the previous two prime time meetings have been especially memorable. The last time Wisconsin and Ohio State met at night came in 2011, when the Buckeyes snatched a 33-29 last-minute victory in Columbus. Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to receiver Devin Smith with 20 seconds remaining to cap the comeback, handing the Badgers their second straight stunning loss. One week earlier, Wisconsin lost on a last-second Hail Mary touchdown pass at Michigan State. In 2010, Wisconsin knocked off then-No. 1 Ohio State 31-18 in a night game at Camp Randall Stadium. It was the first top-ranked team the Badgers had beaten since 1981. Overall, Wisconsin owns a 37-25 record in night games. But the Badgers are 31-6 in their last 37 night games dating back to 1995.
