Ohio State's loss to Purdue doesn't eliminate the Buckeyes, but it puts pressure on them to finish as a one-loss Big Ten champ, which means beating Michigan on Nov. 24. According to ESPN's Playoff Predictor, Ohio State's chances of making the playoff dropped to 42 percent. The loss also opened the door for Oklahoma to get back into the debate if the Sooners can finish as a one-loss champ.

Can't help but think of last year when Ohio State could not make the playoff because of a 31-point loss to Iowa. Losing by 29 at Purdue seems just as tough to overcome, although, as tonight showed, the Buckeyes need to worry about finding a running game more than they do making the playoff.

Purdue has clearly been the better team tonight, but Ohio State's season-long problems -- giving up too many big plays, no consistent run game, too many penalties red zone inefficiency -- have shown up all game. The Buckeyes are getting exactly what they deserve, and probably what they've deserved for several weeks.

For those of us who have paid little attention to Purdue before tonight, yes, the Boilermakers started 0-3. But those three losses came by a total of eight points. Purdue won last three (BC/Neb/Ill) by 70 points. Young defense has made huge strides over first half of season.

Jeff Brohm wanted to get this game to the second half with an opportunity. His Purdue team certainly has one after controlling play for the first 30 minutes. A fake field goal attempt allowed Purdue to tack on a second touchdown right before halftime, and the Boilers lead 14-3. Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins has nice numbers (20 of 26 for 173 yards) but little to show for it, as penalties (9 for 71 yards) have doomed Ohio State. Neither team is running the ball but Purdue has been better with its schemes and execution.

Ohio State's offense can't find a rhythm, largely because its offensive line keeps drawing penalties. The Buckeyes false-started on their first play from scrimmage and have two more false starts and a holding penalty (they also had an illegal formation penalty declined). A very sloppy start (again) for Urban Meyer's offense.

A statement drive by Purdue: 98 yards in 15 plays, capped by an incredible one-handed catch by Isaac Zico for a 13-yard score in the corner of the end zone. Ohio State's inability to contain Rondale Moore or limit explosive plays showed up again, as Purdue mixed its calls and got a lot of skill players involved. The Boilers overcame several negative-yardage plays and know they can gash the Buckeyes.

It's very windy here in West Lafayette. Winds supposed to die down after dark but could be a factor early in tonight's game.
