Ohio State's Shocking 49-20 Loss at Purdue in 11 Mostly Awful GIFs

We put together this train wreck of a GIF collection. The least you can do is look at them as we all wallow in the misery that was Purdue's 49-20 shellacking of Ohio State Saturday night.

The Buckeyes find themselves at 7–1 on the season, but for the second year in a row, the victims of a bad road loss against a team hosting a black out. Was it the penalties, the porous back seven, red zone problems or something else entirely?

In one of the few highlights of the night, punter Drue Chrisman and wide receiver Terry McLaurin team up to pin the Boilermakers deep in their own end early in the game.

Purdue marched 98 yards on the ensuing drive with wide receiver Isaac Zico snagging a pretty, one-handed touchdown to put the Boilermakers up 7-0 towards the end of the first quarter.

Ohio State tried to answer in the second, moving down the field from their own two before this third down pass from Dwayne Haskins to Ben Victor failed to convert.

With 90 seconds remaining in the half, Purdue raced 80 yards to score a touchdown and storm into the locker room up 14-3. The key play on the drive was punter Joe Schopper picking up four yards on a fake field goal coming on a 4th-and-3.

Ohio State opened the second half with a field goal to cut Purdue's lead to eight, and then forced a quick punt,  but this roughing the kicker call against Davon Hamilton gave the Boilermakers new life. Three plays later, they were in the end zone again, and up 21-6.

With time dwindling away in the third quarter, Ohio State faced a 4th-and-goal from the Purdue two. A floater of a snap led Haskins to rush the throw to K.J. Hill and the Buckeyes walked away without points on another red zone possession.

The two teams traded punts throughout the third before Purdue running back D.J. Knox gashed the Buckeyes up the middle to make it 28-6 three minutes into the final stanza.

We feel you, traveling Ohio state fan.

Another rare bright spot on the night. Haskins finds Johnnie Dixon for a 42-yard touchdown. The Buckeyes, trailing 28-13 at the time, weren't quite dead, but they were on life support.

Up 35-20 with less than four minutes to play, star Purdue freshman Rondale Moore took a routine swing 43 yards to the house, thanks to low effort tackling. Moore would finish with 12 receptions for 170 yards and two touchdowns.

Insult to injury: Purdue's Markus Bailey houses a pick-six for the game's final points.
