Ohio State Steamrolls Purdue, 56-0 (Instant Reaction)

osuHelmetOhio State looked absolutely dominant for the second week in a row as they dominate Purdue in all facets of the game on their way to over 600 yards on offense while the defense held Purdue’s offense to under 120 yards. Whether Urban is making a statement or not, it’s clear that Ohio State is playing at a top level right now.

The first half was almost flawless. Outside of Braxton’s interception (to a pretty good Ricardo Allen) and a couple runs that only went for a couple yards the Ohio state offense was moving up and down the field at ease. Starting off with a pick six by Doran Grant to a Kenny Guiton jump pass for a TD, Ohio state suffocated Purdue in the first half to the tune of a 42-0 score.

They picked up where they left off in the second half (less the scoring outburst), starting with a huge hit from Ezekiel Elliot on special teams and continued on throughout as the defense piled up the sacks and the offense chewed up yards on the ground. Miller and most the first teamers took the second half off but Kenny G and Steve Miller set the tone and maintained the rhythm as both the offense and defense continued to take the money and run.

This game was the first time I can remember where the head coach basically laid out the game plan: Coach Meyer said they wanted to work the ball to the tight ends more, which they did and Jeff Heuerman was the benefactor of that plan. He also said he wanted to see Ryan Shazier get more opportunities to blitz, which they also did to the tune of six sacks.

So the Buckeyes move to 9-0 and have next week to rest before facing the Illini on November 16th.


  1. I love that OSU is finally blitzing Shazier more. The guy is Von Miller…USE HIM!!!
