The Big Ten Championship Game between No. 8 Ohio State and No. 4 Wisconsin was temporarily delayed on Saturday night when a Badgers touchdown inadvertently tore up the turf at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Following a fourth-quarter one-yard run by Wisconsin running back Chris James, a large piece of end zone turf was ripped, causing a potentially unsafe playing condition for players. As a result, a stadium employee spent 10 minutes fixing the field before play resumed.

Once back in action, the Badgers made good on their 2-point conversion try, bringing Wisconsin to within three points of Ohio State's 24-21 lead with more than 12 minutes remaining in the game. With a win, the Badgers would likely clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff, while theBuckeyes are currently trying to make their best case to do the same.
