Ohio State raced to a 34-0 lead and downed Purdue on Saturday 41-7 at a rainy Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Ind.

The Buckeye offense started fast, scoring touchdowns on three of its first four possessions. Quarterback Kyle McCord finished the day 16-of-28 for 276 yards and three touchdowns. Devin Brown came off the bench and recorded both a rushing and passing touchdown.

Marvin Harrison Jr. recorded his fourth 100-yard receiving game of the season, finishing with 105 yards on six catches and a touchdown. He opened the scoring with a nice grab on a 14-yard touchdown reception at the 9:11 mark of the first quarter.

Tight end Cade Stover hauled-in four passes, including a pair of touchdowns receptions, and is now sixth all-time in program history among tight ends with 841 career receiving yards. This was his third game with multiple touchdown receptions.

Running back Dallen Hayden took over for an injured Chip Trayanum and had 76 yards on 11 carries and a score.

The Buckeye defense limited Purdue to just 257 total yards and Purdue’s lone touchdown didn’t come until the game was decided in the fourth quarter.
