No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes (-18) vs. Purdue | over/under 52
Game Date/Time: Saturday, Oct. 14 at 12 noon ET
Location: West Lafayette, Indiana
Radio: 97.1 FM/1460 AM
The No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes have two goals today as they head to Ross-Ade Stadium to take on the Purdue Boilermakers. First, they need to win the game as they continue to prepare for the next major hurdle of their season as Penn State will visit The Horseshoe next weekend.
The second is to avoid any of the bad juju that has often accompanied them when they have played in West Lafayette this century. At just 3-and-5 at Ross-Ade since 2000, the stadium has a bit of a house of horrors for OSU. Fortunately for Ryan Day’s squad, all of those losses occurred when Purdue had a dominant NFL player on one side of the ball; either Drew Brees or Mondale Moore on offense or Ryan Kerrigan on defense. They do not have that this year.
This game should be a much more standard Ohio State vs. overmatched Big Ten opponent contest... but you never know what could happen in West Lafayette.
Matt’s Prediction: Ohio State 41, Purdue 13
Kyle McCord: 325 yards passing
Hudson Card: Under 200 yards passing
Ohio State’s defense: Will get to the QB often
