Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm was pleased with his team's effort in a 59-31 loss to Ohio State on Saturday but he was also realistic in acknowledging Ohio State's dominance.
"Ohio State has great talent, especially with the O-line and QB. At the end of the day, they made more plays than us," Brohm said after the game. "They came ready to play and executed really well on the offensive end."
"That could be a team that wins it all," Brohm said of the Buckeyes. "We were lucky to hold them to 59."

One bright spot for the Boilermakers in the lopsided loss was the play of quarterback Aiden O'Connell. Purdue racked up 481 total yards against the Buckeyes' defense, including 390 through the air by O'Connell, who was 40-for-52 passing with 4 touchdown passes.
"He played real efficient football today. He's getting in a good rhythm and knows how to look around for all his receivers," Brohm said.
Purdue is now 6-4 on the season and will take on 3-7 Northwestern at Wrigley Field in Chicago next Saturday.
