This is what Purdue fans are calling Saturday's game:
Purdue's SB Nation preview is here.
Columbus will burn to the ground if:
We get bad Braxton MillerBowl eligibility is officially gone if:
Carlos Hyde is held under 100 yards (50 would be better)
Purdue's defensive line is dominant
Purdue's offensive line creates holes and protects Etling (which it hasn't)
Purdue gets a special teams touchdown
Purdue gets a defensive touchdown
Ohio State plays as it has all year
Purdue plays like it has all year
Some quotes from their fans
We at least play ND every year. I doubt if they would be undefeated if they played Cincinnati, Northern Ill, and ND this year.
Take Braxton out.
That really has to be the game plan. Miller isn’t really that great of a QB when he is heavily pressured and can be cajoled into making mistakes by rushing his throws. If Purdue can make him one dimensional and get several good licks on him, he will fade. He doesn’t like contact. The defense as a whole has to be absolutely punishing on him and Hyde. Together, they may be too tall of an order.
In 20 games Ohio State has played at Purdue 45 is the most points the Buckeyes have scored. 40 is the largest margin of victory.
I will be at this game and hope to witness both records get smashed.
Purdue Harbor II? Please.
