We have reached week eight of the college football season which means a lot of conference showdowns. In this game it’s a Big Ten showdown when the Ohio State Buckeyes make the trip to Ross-Ade Stadium to take on the Purdue Boilermakers.
The Buckeyes have won the last two games played between the two teams.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The Ohio State Buckeyes have had a nice season so far this year and they look like they are heading toward the college football playoffs.
In their last game they took on the Minnesota Golden Gophers and although the final score says 30-14 it was really a lot closer than that.
They were trailing at times during the game and it was the first time this year that the Buckeyes offense has struggled at times.
The Buckeyes are led at quarterback by Dwayne Haskins who has thrown for 2331 yards, 28 touchdowns and only four interceptions.
In this game the offense needs to try and run up the score. If the offense runs up the score in this game, the Boilermakers are going to have a tough time keeping up.
If the offense struggles early again they will let the Boilermakers hang around, and they could be playing with fire.
On the other side of this matchup is the Purdue Boilermakers who got off to a slow start losing their first three games of the season but they have turned it around winning their last three games.
In the last two games they have beaten Nebraska and Illinois, two of the worst teams in the Big Ten so there is still questions about this team.
The Boilermakers are led by David Blough at quarterback who has thrown for 1695 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions.
In their last game against the Fighting Illini the defense only gave up seven points and they need that same defense to show up.
They need to probably create a few turnovers and they need to slow down the pace of play if they want a chance to pull the upset.
