FOX Sports lead college football broadcasters Gus Johnson, Joel Klatt and Jenny Taft call the 2019 Big Ten Football Championship Game presented by Discover, as the top-ranked Buckeyes look to claim their third consecutive conference title, going up against the Badgers, who are making their record sixth appearance in the event.
