I don’t think WI was exposed as a fraud or weak. They were playing in horrific conditions. Is there defense as good as;other years? No, but they’re still a dominant defense. tOSU also struggled the first half (again, field/weather played a big part, as did Justin Fields playing in his first cold weather game).
What I was surprised abt was how good tOSU’s running game was on a wet, cold field.
And yes, Chase Young is a beast! I’d like to see a defensive player in the running for the Heisman. Right now I’d put the top candidates as a Joe Burrows, Chase Young, Justin Fields, Jalen Hurts And maybe Jonathan Taylor (he’s still had a brilliant year, despite a terrible game Saturday).
