OHIO STATE AT PURDUE PREVIEW: Purdue’s Holland & Short will try to stop OSU running attack


Joe Holland

Kawann Short

The Purdue Boilermakers defense last week allowed Wisconsin RB Montee Ball to rush for 223 yards while the Badgers offense racked up 364 rushing yards and 605 total in that 62-17 debacle.

This week, it will not get any easier as the Boilermakers will be facing Ohio State’s three-headed running attack of Daniel Herron, Carlos Hyde and QB Braxton Miller will be arriving in Ross-Ade Stadium. They’ll have to pick their poison on who to stop.

The Purdue defense allows 26.4 points per game and only the Hoosiers allow more rushing yards per game in the Big Ten as we saw last week.

The Boilermakers do have a couple of players that the Buckeyes will have to watch, LB Joe Holland and DT Kawann Short. Holland is 19th in school history with 297 career tackles. Short is one of the best in the Big Ten at DT as his 12.5 tackles for a loss ranks fourth.

Another player to watch on the Purdue defense is CB Ricardo Allen, who has three interceptions and has returned one for a touchdown.



Wisconsin at Ohio State update: OSU takes control in 3rd QTR


Buckeyes defense continue pressure on Russell Wilson (mega)

The Ohio State Buckeyes received the ball first to start the 3rd QTR and good things started to happen.

Daniel Herron on the first play from scrimmage, rumbled 57 yards to the Wisconsin 18 yard line.

From there, Braxton Miller ran right past an over-pursuing defender and walked into the end zone for a 10-7 OSU lead.

The Bucks defense then forced a 3-and-out on the Badgers. Then the punt return team blocked a punt and it was recovered at the Badgers 1.

The block was credited by the Ryan Shazier and recovered by Curtis Grant.

Jordan Hall scored on a 1-yard run to make it 17-7 at the 9:26 mark.

Jordan Hall muffed a punt and the Badgers recovered at the OSU 28.

From there Montee Ball scored on a 1-yard run, his 21st TD of the year which leads the nation. OSU 17 Wisconsin 14.





Wisconsin at Ohio State Update: 7-0 Badgers after 1st QTR

The Wisconsin Badgers lead the Ohio State Buckeyes 7-0 after one quarter of play.

The Badgers scored on a 22-yard touchdown reception by Montee Ball from QB Russell Wilson at 6:58 of the quarter. The drive encompassed 8 plays, 69 yards, chewing up 3:10 on the clock.

The Buckeyes moved the ball pretty good in the quarter but just could not get the big play needed to get going.

OSU QB Braxton Miller had several balls dropped by Philly Brown and Jake Stoneburner. Miller is throwing the ball well just not connecting.

The Buckeyes defense has had some missed tackles and are having trouble keeping up with Badgers fullback Bradie Ewing.



WISCONSIN AT OHIO STATE Gameday: Buckeyes “D” must stop Wilson, Ball & White to win

OSU 1961 replica helmet to be worn tonight

The Buckeyes defense will have to do three things if the team wants to upset the 15th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers tonight in a nationally televised game, stop QB Russell Wilson and the running back tandem of Montee Ball and James White.

The Badgers have one of college football’s most balanced offenses.

Wilson at the helm has led Wisconsin to a Big Ten leading 259.6 passing yards per game and a second-place ranking of 252.1 yards rushing per game.

On the outside, there is redshirt senior wide receiver Nick Toon. He averages 18.7 yards per catch and ranks fourth in the conference with 84.2 receiving yards per game.

If the OSU Silver Bullets defense played the way it performed against Illinois’ high-powered offense, they should prevail.
