OHIO STATE AT PURDUE GAMEDAY: Buckeyes lose in OT to Purdue, 26-23


Another nightmare day at Ross-Ade for OSU

WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA — For the second time in three years, the Ohio State Buckeyes have been upset at Ross-Ade Stadium.

The final score in overtime, 26-23.

The Buckeyes lost the game due to a slow start on offense, poor tackling on defense, a missed extra point and a missed 50-yard field goal by Drew Basil.

Let me point out, that the missed extra point was blocked due to missed assignment on the field goal team by freshman offensive lineman Antonio Underwood.

Head coach Luke Fickell did not look happy in his post-game media press conference with the media

OHIO STATE AT PURDUE GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes try to overcome past troubles at Ross-Ade Stadium

The Ohio State Buckeyes (6-3, 3-2) quest for the Leaders Division title and Big Ten Championship Game continues this week as they travel to West Lafayette, Indiana to take on the Purdue Boilermakers (4-5, 2-3) at noon ET at Ross-Ade Stadium (62,500).

The Buckeyes and Boilermakers have met 52 times on the gridiron, and OSU leads the series 37-12-2, 12-7 in all games at Purdue. Although, Purdue has won three of the last five games played at Ross-Ade Stadium. The most recent win was the 26-18 debacle in 2009.

The Boilermakers can be a dangerous team just as Indiana was last week. Purdue has upset Illinois and lost to Penn State by five points.

However, last Saturday, head coach Danny Hope and Purdue had a slow start at Wisconsin and they paid for it with an embarrassing 62-17 loss. The 62 points are the most ever given up by the Boilers defense.

Special teams could play a big role in this game.

OSU placekicker Drew Basil has now connected on 12 straight field goals.

Boilermakers punter Cody Webster leads the Big Ten in averaging 45.5 yards per punt.

Wide receiver Raheem Mostert is dangerous on kick returns. He is second in the Big Ten with 31.6 yards per return and picked up 206 return yards against the Badgers last week.

The Buckeyes continue to hang with them as the saying goes as the halftime score at soldout Ohio Stadium is 7-3 Wisconsin.

The Buckeyes produced the only score of the 2nd quarter as kicker Drew Basil’s 39-yard field goal hit the left upright but it was good.

The Buckeyes defense put constant pressure on the Badgers star quarterback Russell Wilson.

The Homecoming crowd have been treated with visits from Byron Mullins, Evan Turner and Michael Redd and Eddie George.

Eddie George is being honored for his upcoming induction into the National College Football Hall of Fame.

The stats at the half has Wisconsin with 127 yards of total offense and the Buckeyes with 104. The Badgers have only 10 yards on the ground.



TOLEDO-OSU RECAP: Luke Fickell escapes embarassing loss;discusses game outcome

Most of us who cover the Ohio State Buckeyes on a regular basis, were sitting in the press box during Saturday’s 27-22 win over the Toledo Rockets wandering several things aloud, on Twitter and Facebook.

What if Luke Fickell loses this game and why isn’t he playing Braxton Miller when it was obvious Joe Bauserman was struggling badly at times.

If Toledo had won that game, it would’ve been the first time in 90 years that an in-state opponent would’ve beaten the Buckeyes. Believe it or not, Oberlin won in 1921.

A loss like this would not look good when Coach Fickell and Gene Smith get together at the end of the season to decide whether he keeps the job or not.

Toledo is a good football team, but they are not Wisconsin, Miami of Florida, Nebraska or Michigan.

The first-year head coach also could not be happy with his special teams inconsistent play. Toledo blocking a punt to set up its first TD and Drew Basil missing two field goals, one that counted and one that was nullified due to a penalty.

In his postgame press conference with the media, Fickell talked about Carlos Hyde, the blocked punt, Chris Fields’ 69-yard punt return for a TD, Philly Brown, Rod Smith’s fumbling and the state of the team after two games.
