Ohio State Vs. Purdue Final Score: Buckeyes Lose In Overtime, 26-23

Ohio State had an opportunity to sneak out a win themselves in regulation, after Braxton Miller did a tremendous job scrambling and finding Jordan Hall for the game-tying touchdown. All they had to do was hit the extra point and they would've had a one-point lead with under a minute left in the game. However, the extra point was blocked and overtime was all but assured. 

In the overtime period, OSU couldn't convert their own third down conversion and then allowed Purdue to convert a third-and-12 that put them at first-and-goal from the one yard line. Purdue quarterback Robert Marve sneaked and scored on the very first play to hand the Buckeyes their second straight loss to Purdue.

Despite the blocked extra point that could've won it for the Buckeyes in regulation, looking at the first quarter, when they gained a total of 11 yards and trailed 10-0, should tell the real story as to why they lost this one.
