Ohio State fans do an O-h-i-o chant in Purdue's Ross-Ade Stadium

Buckeye fans successfully pulled off an O-h-i-o chant in enemy territory during Ohio State's game against Purdue.

Things are not going well for Purdue right now. Their football team trails 28-0 including a pick 6 touchdown by Buckeyes defensive back Doran Grant, a Braxton Miller to Jeff Heuerman catch and score on just OSU's second offensive play of the game, and even a flip from Miller on a scramble to wideout Philly Brown. But to really add insult to, well, insult I suppose, Ohio State fans have commandeered Ross-Ade Stadium as their own.

Sure, the Buckeyes have a huge, mobile fan base, but it's one thing to talk about taking over an opposing team's stadium and then actually do it. Started in a section featuring Ohio State student section fans who made the road trip several hours west to West Lafayette, OSU fans in enemy territory were successfully able to carry out the O-h-i-o chant (and then do it multiple times at that).

While we expect this kind of stuff in Indiana's Memorial Stadium, Purdue fans are typically capable of better. Not during a 1-6 season, I suppose.
