COLUMBUS — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said today he expects quarterback Braxton Miller to start the fourth-ranked Buckeyes' primetime showdown against Wisconsin.
Meyer said the junior star, who missed the past two games with a strained left knee, practiced on Sunday and is about "90 percent" healthy.
"If he has a good week of practice, he will start," Meyer said. "I saw him [Sunday], and I'm much more confident. I mean, he had a very good day yesterday, and we practiced pretty hard. ... He could be 100 percent by next week, I'm hoping."
OSU hosts the No. 23 Badgers (3-1) at 8 p.m. Saturday.
