No. 2 Ohio State stumbles at Purdue, gets blown out

Gn8jmz5wg4avp5a5zu7f

The Ohio State beat down on Saturday night sent the Buckeyes tumbling out of the top 10 in the latest college football poll.

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.

OSU's defense looked like it might have gotten exhausted or maybe got a little discouraged in the fourth quarter when it gave up three touchdowns in eight minutes.

"The glaring shortcomings we have were exposed", Meyer said.

Michigan's defense was especially impressive, holding No. 24 Michigan State to a measly 94 yards in snapping its streak of 17 straight road losses to ranked teams.

"These guys (the Spartans) will come in hungry and fired up for a win, and we're going to have to respond and play a clean football game", Brohm said. "We've never had this issue".

"It was a fantastic performance by our football team".

The Buckeyes had been playing loose over the last several weeks, starting slow and taking until the second half to finally get things going. Dantonio's last loss to Purdue came as a defensive backs coach at MSU in 1999 when the Boilermakers defeated the then-No.

Meyer was anxious about the team having a letdown going into a bye week and taking the Boilermakers for granted.

"There's no tension", Meyer said Tuesday when asked about the report. "But it is what it is, and this is a big one". They were getting +405, and definitely worth putting a bet there. The 2007 team's historic upset win at No. 5 MI sparked the "Appalachian State rule" - an AP policy change "to make all NCAA Division I teams (FCS and FBS) eligible to receive votes in its Top 25 poll", App State athletics reported. The line was set at 65.5.

The killer was Purdue's scoring three touchdowns in the final 4:40 of contest. Washington State is the highest-ranked team in the Pac-12. The Buckeyes' 86 penalty yards cost the visitors more as it had personal foul penalties that kept Purdue's first and third touchdown drives alive.

That didn't matter. WSU won easily 34-20, and quarterback Gardner Mishnew II said his team is ready to challenge for the Pac-12 Championship. "There are some serious shortcomings right now that we have to get fixed".
