WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) – DJ Knox rushed for 1
28 yards and three touchdowns, David Blough threw for another three points and Purdue shook at Chase Football Playoff Chase with a 49-20 blowout of No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday night.
The Boilermakers (4-3, 3-1 Big Ten) won their fourth straight overall, their second in a row over a ranked team and pulled out the most upset since they had removed then-no. 2 Ohio State 28-23 October 6, 1984. Purdue also set a scoring for points scored against Buckeyes, besting the previous mark of 41 in 1967.
Suspicious Ohio State (7-1, 4-1) had his 12-player winning line clashed, fell out of the Big Ten East lead behind rival Michigan and now has to fight his way back to the playoff position.
Blow outplayed Heisman Trophy candidate Dwayne Haskins Jr. One night Buckeyes did not reach the end zone until the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Blough walked 25 of 43 by 378 meters and sealed the victory with a 43-minute pass to Rondale Moore at 3:37 to play. It was Blough’s third straight 300-yard game and his fourth this season.
Haskins wrapped 49 out of 73, crushed the school into single games in both categories and had 470 meters and two touchdowns and one intercept. But he missed recipients down the field on a windy night at Ross-Ade Stadium and was almost shut off a couple of times before Markus Bailey made a late 41-year-old interception.
The Buckeyes were also required for 10 punishments and met their biggest half-time in the season 14-3 before giving up four-score games over 40m in the fourth quarter.
There was no fluke either. Boilermakers dominated the first half by staying away.
Isaac Zico capped Purdue’s longest score for the 98-meter season, with a spectacular united catch before he ran out of bounds to make it 7-0 late in the first quarter. Ohio State responded by swiftly marching down the field using two 15-yard penalty against Purdue’s defense before settling for a 24-yard field goal.
Blake Haubeil then missed a 33-yard field goal next to the left with 1:51 left in the first half and Blough took Boilermakers 80 yards in 84 seconds, using points Joe Schopper’s first down-run on a fake field goal to put up a 9-yards scoring pass to Moore.
Buckeyes tried to speed up and intensify in the second half, but it did not work either.
After closing to 14-6 early in the third quarter Davon Hamilton was required to foul the kicker and Boilermakers took on his second chance with Knox 1-yard TD run. Haskins finally ended with Johnnie Dixon III on a 32-meter TD pass to make it 28-13 and Terry McLaurin on a 34-yard TD pass to make it 35-20 by 4:40 to go but Bloughs TD passes to Moore
Buckeyes: It was not just a loss. It was ugly. Ohio State fought to run the ball again, made too many mistakes in all three phases and could not keep up with Purdue’s speed late. Urban Meyer’s third true road loss since it became Buckey’s coach will not be forgotten sometime soon.
Boilermakers: Purdue’s first four-winning winning streak since 2007 is easily the biggest win of coach Jeff Brohm’s second season in West Lafayette. Now Boilermakers enter the most challenging part of its schedule with the speed and visions of a Big Ten West title.
Ohio State was the only top 10 team to lose Saturday and is likely to take a tumble in the ranking, considering the score and how bad Buckeyes played. Boilermakers may have to wait at least one week to break the top 25, but they should get the attention of the voters this week and can pick up some votes.
Buckeyes: Have a hello week to think about what went wrong before we hosted Nebraska on November 3rd.
Boilermakers: Go to 24 Michigan State next Saturday, hoping to build on their speed.
