Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is ready to get back to football.

After regrouping from a season-ending injury to quarterback J.T. Barrett, dealing with the tragic death of walk-on Kosta Karageorge and Wednesday's team trip to Karageorge's funeral, the Buckeyes arrived in Indianapolis focused on football.

No. 6 Ohio State (11-1, 8-0) faces No. 11 Wisconsin (10-2, 7-1) in Saturday's Big Ten championship game. There's plenty at stake for the East Division champion.

The Buckeyes, who are trying to avenge last year's title game loss, also are trying to keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive.

But the Badgers have won 11 straight games in Indiana, including the league's first two championship games in 2011 and 2012.
