Some LBS family was at the game and sent in video of how things looked with the field covered with fans:
Purdue entered the final quarter holding a 21-6 lead. After the Buckeyes scored to make it 28-13 with under 10 minutes left, some felt the comeback was on. Instead, Purdue extended their lead with three more touchdowns, two coming on long plays and a third coming on a pick-six.
David Blough threw for 378 yards and 3 touchdowns, while DJ Knox ran for three scores. Purdue’s 49 points was a school record against Ohio State. They have now won four in a row following a disappointing 0-3 start, while the Buckeyes lost their first game of the season.
