Ohio State Buckeyes vs Purdue Boilermakers takes place on Saturday afternoon in one of the biggest college football games this weekend. Ohio will be big favorites for this one but Purdue will be desperate to bounce back following their recent poor form. The game will start at 12 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Purdue Boilermakers come into this game on the back of five straight losses. Their offense has been blunt this season, and they still have not scored over 24 points so far. They must correct these things today if they are to have any chance of causing an upset against Ohio State.
Ohio State have had the opposite fortune this season, and are rolling over many that come up against them. They recently blew out Penn State 63-14, and many expect today's game could go the same way as the Boilermakers have been struggling.
No. 4 seeded Ohio State is 39-14-2 against Purdue in their all-time series, and they are favorites to continue that good run against them today.
For Ohio State, running back Carlos Hyde is back after serving a three-game suspension, and that will be a big boost for the Buckeyes. He's rushed for over 140 yards in each of the last three games, with seven touchdowns in that period. If Purdue cannot contain him then they will be in for a long afternoon.
At the moment Alabama, Florida State and Oregon are all still ahead of Ohio State in the rankings, so the Buckeyes must win today to keep pace with them.
