Purdue throttles No. 2 Ohio State to earn shocking upset

Purdue Football Purdue rocks #2 Ohio State with stunning upset win in Big 10 football

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.

Blough outplayed Heisman Trophy candidate Dwayne Haskins Jr. on a night the Buckeyes didn't reach the end zone until early in the fourth quarter. Quarterback David Blough was 25 of 43 for 378 yards and three touchdowns. It was Blough's third straight 300-yard game and his fourth this season. But he missed receivers down the field on a windy night at Ross-Ade Stadium and was almost picked off a couple of times before Markus Bailey scored on a late 41-yard interception return.

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 Virginia team 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. Michigan's Karan Higdon had 144 yards rushing on 33 carries against the nation's top-ranked rushing defense. 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.

Johnathan Thomas took the ensuing kickoff back to the IN 5, setting up McSorley for the go-ahead touchdown on the next play. Miles Sanders ran for 72 yards and a touchdown. It was the second straight week they'd pulled one off in a game after scoring a touchdown on a double-reverse wide-receiver pass against IL. Scott led IN in rushing with 138 yards and two touchdowns.

Twice, Purdue cornerback Antonio Blackmon broke up third-down passes in the end zone.

Ivory Kelly-Martin ran for 98 yards for Iowa, which had its first shutout since a 28-0 victory at IL two years ago. It was Blough's third straight 300-yard game and his fourth this season.




All three of Maryland's losses have come by at least 21 points.

Its defense got picked on in the passing game and then finished off by Purdue with two long touchdown runs. Knox repeated the trick minutes later, again going 40 yards without a single Buckeye defender in sight.

The Boilermakers' second touchdown came on its next possession after Haubeil's missed field goal.

Nebraska rushed for 383 yards and totaled 659.

Martinez completed 25 of 29 mostly short passes adding up to 276 yards and three TDs.
