BTN/BTN2Go is airing the top 10 football games of 2012, and the countdown starts with Ohio State’s 21-14 overtime victory over Wisconsin. Watch the game at 8 p.m. ET tonight, and the next nine games at the same time through Aug. 11. Until then, relive the thrilling game in this post.

OHIO STATE 21, WISCONSIN 14 (OT)

Carlos Hyde scored on a 2-yard run in overtime Saturday, giving No. 6 Ohio State a 21-14 victory over Wisconsin and keeping the Buckeyes’ hopes of a perfect season alive. The Buckeyes (11-0, 7-0) clinched the Leaders Division title outright with the win.

But they are ineligible for the postseason as part of their punishment for NCAA violations under former coach Jim Tressel, and the best they can hope for is to end the year unbeaten and to maybe capture the AP Top 25 title.

Montee Ball scored his 78th touchdown, tying Travis Prentice’s major-college record for career scores. But he fumbled on what would have been the record-breaker with 2:46 left in regulation.

Leading passer: Curt Phillips, 14-25, 154 yards, 1 TD
Leading rusher: Montee Ball, 39 car., 191 yards, 1 TD
