On This Day in History, 2002: “Holy Buckeye!”

By D.J. Byrnes on November 9, 2017 at 7:23 am

On this day in history 15 years ago, Nov. 9th, 2002, to be exact, No. 3 Ohio State found itself trailing trailing Purdue, 6-3, with 1:52 left in the fourth quarter.

On 4th and 1, Buckeye coach Jim Tressel eschewed his conservative nature and dialed up King Right 64 Y Shallow Swap.

Quarterback Craig Krenzel, who had only attempted six passes on the day, went deep to Michael Jenkins for a 37-yard touchdown pass, the only six-point play of the afternoon, as Ohio Ste held off Purdue, 10-3 in West Lafayette.
