Ohio State regrouped at halftime and started the third quarter exactly as they had hoped, forcing a three-and-out on Purdue and then putting points on the scoreboard on their first possession.
After getting the ball back in pretty good field position, Jordan Hall broke off a 25 yard run into Iowa territory. After another four yard run from Hall, Carlos Hyde and Braxton Miller took care of the rest -- Hyde and Miller picked up the remaining 29 yards on six combined rushes to put Ohio State down just three, 17-14.
Neither team could get much else going in the quarter, although Purdue did drive to OSU's 34 yard line before the Buckeyes stopped them on three consecutive plays.
The Buckeyes will start the fourth quarter with the ball, but face a third down.
