Head coach Jim Tressel met with the media at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center Thursday afternoon as No. 1 Ohio State continues to gear up for No. 19 Wisconsin this Saturday at Ohio Stadium (Noon ET, Big Ten Network).

Tressel began the session talking about OSU football legend Bill Willis, who will have his No. 99 jersey retired during ceremonies at Saturday’s game. Willis, a Columbus native and Buckeye lineman from 1942-44, was a three-year starter on both offense and defense while earning All-America honors in 1943 and 1944.
