Ohio State vs. Purdue score: Boilermakers take 20-14 lead into 4th quarter

The Purdue Boilermakers refuse to back down from the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes, as the Boilermakers have taken a 20-14 lead into the fourth quarter at Ohio Stadium. The Buckeyes may have to make a comeback attempt without quarterback Braxton Miller, who left the game late in the third quarter after landing hard on his left shoulder.

Ohio State took a 14-13 lead early in the third quarter after an eight-play, 80-yard touchdown drive. Buckeyes running back Carlos Hyde finished off the drive with a two-yard scoring rush. Miller found a groove throwing the ball, passing for 61 yards on the drive, including a big 35-yard pass to Chris Fields that set up Hyde's score.

Purdue answered right back, with an 82-yard touchdown drive of their own. Boilermakers quarterback Caleb TerBush was 6-of-6 passing on the drive for 73 yards, including a 31-yard scoring strike to Gary Bush.

The Purdue defense followed up the score with a big play of their own, stripping Miller and recovering a fumble. It was Miller's second lost fumble of the day and third turnover overall. Ohio State's defense limited the damage, blocking a 34-yard field goal attempt by Boilermakers kicker Paul Griggs.
