It’s time for some revenge here for the Buckeyes. They were beaten last year in overtime by Purdue, and that really sent them into a tailspin over the course of the rest of the year. Now, clearly have the only viable team in the Big Ten, and they have a shot to take one more step towards the perfect season that they dreamed of this year. QB Braxton Miller is a mobile quarterback that is going to be able to gash some major holes in a defense that just allowed RB Montee Ball to rush for 247 yards and allowed RB James White to have over 100 as well. The Boilermakers have also gone cold offensively, scoring just 27 points in total over the course of the last two weeks, and both games were at home against severely less talented teams. The home team has covered three straight in this series, and there just is no reason to think that that number won’t make it up to four straight when push comes to shove.
Purdue @ Ohio State Pick: Ohio State -18
Purdue @ Ohio State Score Prediction: Ohio State 38 – Purdue 17
