Urban Meyer, Dwayne Haskins Talk Loss To Purdue

Purdue football cheerleaders

Ohio State 12. Kentucky 13.

None of that was new.

In spite of their blemishes, though, both Ohio State and MI are still very much in contention to finish in the top four - and they have the strength of schedule to do it, just not together.

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.

"We gave him a lot of different looks, some max-blitz looks to get him on his heels".

Minnesota made things interesting, though, scoring on three possessions in a row spanning the halves, with backup quarterback Tanner Morgan replacing Zack Annexstad to open the third quarter and leading two straight touchdown drives to pull the Gophers to 28-22. Haskins (two touchdowns, one interception, 73 pass attempts) was outperformed by unheralded Purdue quarterback David Blough (three touchdowns, no interceptions).

Penn State (5-2, 2-2 Big Ten) rallied to snap a two-game losing streak after IN (4-4, 1-4) took a 21-20 lead IN the third quarter on Steve Scott's 3-yard touchdown run. Blough was outstanding all night, throwing for 378 yards and three touchdowns, with no turnovers.




Purdue coach Jeff Brohm said he emphasized being aggressive in all facets of the game and his team played with aggression.

"Mad respect to Ohio State... they got beat big on the road and still cleaned up all the trash in the locker room and put their stools back in their lockers!"

After closing to 14-6 early in the third quarter, Davon Hamilton was called for roughing the kicker and the Boilermakers cashed in on their second chance with Knox's 1-yard TD run.

Ivory Kelly-Martin ran for 98 yards for Iowa, which had its first shutout since a 28-0 victory at IL two years ago. Instead of the luxury of separation that comes with being undefeated, Ohio State or MI needs to finish as a one-loss Big Ten champ - and even that might not be enough for the Buckeyes if Oklahoma can run the table and wow the selection committee in the Big 12 title game.

The game peaked at a 5.2 (11-11:15 p.m.) rating in the fourth quarter, with a flurry of touchdowns giving the Boilermakers the 49-20 victory at home in front of a raucous crowd and a special guest of honor in Tyler Trent.

Prior to both of those field goals, cornerback Antonio Blackmon broke up would-be touchdowns on third down.

Ohio State's Paris Campbell Jr. heads up field as Purduecornerback Simeon Smiley closes in for the tackle at Ross-Ade Stadium on the campus of Purdue University Saturday.
