The Ohio State Buckeyes have been a premier team for a while now, and with another season of them chasing the title, comes another season, with a heart breaking upset.

Ohio State went into West Lafayette, Indiana to face the Purdue Boilermakers, favored to win by 18.5 points. Going into the game, Ohio Stateś defense was being questioned, especially their passing defense, which led people to believe Purdue had a chance. Purdue started off the scoring in the game with a touchdown seven minutes into the game, which was answered with a field goal by the Buckeyes the next drive. With a 7-3 lead over the Buckeyes with one minute left in the half, Purdue faked a field goal and threw the ball into the endzone to give Purdue a 14-3 lead at the half, and all the momentum in the world. The second half was owned by Purdue, outsourcing the Buckeyes 35-17 to give Purdue a 49-20 victory over the 2nd ranked Buckeyes, completing what most likely go down as the biggest upset of the season.

The Buckeyes would drop in the rankings from 2 to 11, and their playoff hopes, beginning to fade away.
