Ohio State drops from No. 2 to No

Ohio State drops from No. 2 to No

Ohio State's inability to score in the red zone has been a problem all year and it certainly was an issue against Purdue. The depth on offense is being tested and you saw the results with just 94 total yards of offense.

Ohio State was in the red zone five times against three-loss Purdue and came away with two field goals, and the Buckeyes' defense has allowed 35 plays of 25-plus yards this season - already five more than all of previous year. All of those numbers except the touchdowns were Ohio State records.

David Blough has been as productive as any Purdue quarterback in a long time.

It was a wild weekend for our state's sports teams, to say the least. We've got a few new teams entering the projections this week and a few dropouts due to unexpected losses. We have good players and good coaches.

"We knew that they couldn't hang with us", Winovich said. Meyer was the one calling the shots throughout the game, not Bowen. He said on a teleconference Sunday he wasn't going to address the situation, calling it "juvenile". "We'll see if we can get that young man healthy".

Boilermakers: Purdue's first four-game winning streak since 2007 is easily the biggest win of coach Jeff Brohm's second season in West Lafayette.

"The whole thing to me was sort of juvenile", Dantonio said. "They gave us a time". They're not getting paid anything and there's no guarantee they will get drafted by a professional football team. Freshman receiver Rondale Moore continues to be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses, and Purdue has pulled no punches in calling plays.

The first of those came with the help of two 15-yard Purdue penalties.

Right at the end of the first half, Purdue was set up for a 30-yard field goal that would have given them a seven-point lead over Ohio State.

It was the Boilermakers' fourth straight win and second straight over a ranked opponent, as they scored their most points ever in a game against the Buckeyes and shook up the College Football Playoff picture. The punt coverage team allowed Purdue to get a first down on a fake field goal after Haubeil's miss. Haskins connected with Terry McLaurin on a 34-yard touchdown pass with four minutes to play for the Buckeyes' other touchdown.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Mack is coming off a fine sophomore campaign in which he grabbed 24 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns.
