In a scoreline that might make your jaw drop, Purdue defended their home field and walked out with a 49-20 win, knocking off a top-2 team for the first time since 1984. The matchup is the third-highest-rated college football game on ESPN/ABC this season and is up year-over-year from last year's presentation of Michigan-Penn State in the same window.

Both Ohio State and MI should finish with a better schedule strength than Oklahoma, though the Sooners still have a chance to beat a ranked West Virginiateam on the road and possibly avenge the regular-season loss to Texas by beating the Longhorns in the Big 12 title game. Dixon returned the kickoff to the Ohio State 45, and Purdue committed back-to-back 15-yard penalties to start the drive. Until today, the Big Ten's best chance to get two teams in would have been MI winning out and winning the Big Ten.

While Purdue did come with an eye toward allowing yards to prevent game-changing plays, it was aggressive early on, blitzing Haskins into check-down throws, then making the tackles, the first time, every time, through it all making sure that Ohio State's east-and-west passing was bottled up. Ohio State responded by quickly marching down the field helped by two 15-yard penalties against Purdue's defense before settling for a 24-yard field goal.
