For the second consecutive game, the Ohio State Buckeyes with a totally dominating performance as the Buckeyes crushed Purdue on the road, 56-0, to move to 9-0 and extend the second-longest winning streak in school history to 21.
Doran Grant ran in an interception for a touchdown in the opening minute of the game and OSU never looked back as Braxton Miller threw touchdown passes to Jeff Heuerman, Nick Vannett, Corey Brown and Ezekiel Elliott.
Kenny Guiton flipped a td pass to Chris Fields and ran for two touchdowns and the Buckeye defense had six sacks and completely overwhelmed a Purdue team that dropped to 1-7 on the season.
No question that Purdue was out-manned today, but credit should go to Ohio State for going out and taking care of business by building a 28-0 lead in the first quarter and allowing Purdue no chances to come back.
That is the mark of a sound football team.
Incidentally, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer moved into sole possession of fifth place on the all-time list of coaches with long winning streaks at the start of their career at a school. In fourth place is Larry Coker who won 24 straight at Miami, Florida before losing to Ohio State in the 2002 national title game. All time leader is Pop Warner at Pittsburgh with 30 straight.
