Surprising stat. OSU has only scored 40+ points versus Wisconsin 1 time since 1990 (m)

The one game was the 59-0 domination in the 2014 trilogy. Of note OSU had a +4 TO margin in that game, shut down Melvin Gordon and their hyped run game, and on Offense ran and passed equally well vs their D. As perfect of a game as any OSU team has ever played.
Wisconsin has also scored 40+ versus OSU 1 time since 1990.
Since 2000, OSU has averaged 30 points per game versus Wisconsin while Wisconsin is averaging rough 18 points per game vs OSU.
The Bucks have had a lot of talented and high scoring offenses since 1990 but Wisconsin has found a way to keep the vast majority of games to lower scores and more ball control type of games.
Will OSU score over 40 points on Saturday? Definitely decent shot, but it would break historical trends if so.
