Purdue shocks second-ranked Ohio State, 49-20


SCORE UPDATES: No. 2 Ohio State takes on Purdue

Urban Meyer's team can win out and probably secure a bid into the College Football Playoff. They just promised to work on them, and implied that they felt like progress was being made. Purdue also set a school record for points scored against the Buckeyes, besting the previous mark of 41 in 1967.

Name an issue, and it came up against the Boilermakers: Giving up big plays on defense; an offense that still hasn't figured out how to run the ball for a myriad of reasons, and struggles to score in the red zone because of that.

Ohio State: Ohio State is in the midst of a risky part of its schedule. Behind a high-powered offense and an aggressive defense, some of the sport's boldest prognosticators thought Jeff Brohm's Boilermakers had what it took to slay the perceived best team in the Big Ten. Moore's second touchdown was an incredible mix of determination and a poor display of tackling by Ohio State, essentially summing up the way this game came to a close in the fourth quarter.

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 a year ago.

ABC's Saturday Night Football showdown featuring the upset of No. 2 Ohio State at Purdue (7:30 p.m. ET) delivered a 4.2 overnight rating, ranking as the top college football game of the day and marking the seventh straight Saturday that the highest-rated primetime game aired on ESPN/ABC. "I think we had opportunities to get right back in it".

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

The Buckeyes' only score of the first half - a 24-yard field goal by Blake Haubeil - was partly gift-wrapped.

Adrian Martinez hit Stanley Morgan Jr. for a 35-yard TD and passed to him again for a 2-point conversion to make it 36-22.

Soldiers were removing bodies and attempting to identify them, Chen added, but nightfall was complicating rescue work. At least 17 people have died after a train derailed and flipped over in Taiwan Sunday, October 21, authorities said.

"It was fantastic", running back D.J. Knox said of the scene. The Boilermakers converted a second-and-25, and Blough then threw to Isaac Zico for a 13-yard touchdown.

And that was the blueprint against the Buckeyes' big-play passing offense, to force the Buckeyes into modest gains, then put a hard cap on those gains. Recent history at Ross-Ade hasn't been kind to the Buckeyes, either.

It's why the 13 members of the College Football Playoff selection committee don't release their first ranking until October 30, because the story is just beginning to unfold, and one upset can cause a ripple effect throughout the entire cast of contenders.
