Ohio State knocked out of top 10 in latest college football poll

Ohio State knocked out of top 10 in latest college football poll

Purdue upped their record to 4- 3 and will take on Michigan State this Saturday while Ohio State had their undefeated season end with Saturday night's loss as their record now stands at 7 -1. The Boilermakers dominated the first half by playing keep away. Ohio State is now looking up at MI in the Big Ten East standings. It was Blough's third straight 300-yard game and his fourth this season.

Ohio State made a point to get in the faces of Purdue players before the game and do some trash-talking as the teams went out on the field during warmups.

Mistake-prone Ohio State (7-1, 4-1) had its 12-game winning streak snapped, fell out of the Big Ten East lead behind rival MI and must fight away its way back into playoff position.

Purdue led 21-6 after three quarters then put four touchdowns on the scoreboard in the fourth quarter to put the game into the blowout category.

Purdue struck first, using a 15-play, 98-yard drive that took seven minutes off the clock and ended with a David Blough to Isaac Zico 13-yard touchdown connection.

Buckeyes run game is struggling. (Ohio State also had lost earlier to Oklahoma.) It was the second straight year that the Big Ten champion was left out of the top four and a reminder that there's no guarantee in a system as subjective as the playoff.

"We get a chance to be 8-1, that's the focus", Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said after the Purdue loss. Dwayne Haskins, who came into the game ranked in the in the top five nationally in touchdown passes, passing yards and completion percentage, threw the ball a season-high 73 times, mostly sticking to short passes and screens, until he went deep to Johnnie Dixon for a 32-yard strike in the fourth quarter. Knox finished with 128 yards and three touchdowns. The Wolverines are in the midst of a three-game stretch against ranked opponents, having already defeated No. 15 Wisconsin and No. 24 Michigan State.

Ivory Kelly-Martin ran for 98 yards for Iowa, which had its first shutout since a 28-0 victory at IL two years ago.

This is why Ohio State might not be done yet, either. But after a third-down incompletion by Haskins, Haubeil missed a 34-yard field goal attempt wide left.

He sent his field-goal unit out onto the field, but instead of going for three he called for a fake that worked to perfection. Purdue hit paydirt on the next play on a Rondale Moore nine-yard TD catch. Five plays later, McSorley almost walked into the end zone to make it 33-21 lead.
