How Did Purdue Move The Ball So Well Against Ohio State’s Defense?

The Ohio State defense didn’t give up any runs longer than 11 yards or passes of more than 29 yards in a 59-31 win over Purdue.

But the Boilermakers were still able to move the ball with a consistency that was a little concerning for Buckeye fans. At one point they had four consecutive scoring drives longer than 60 yards.

So why was Purdue able to run the ball against Ohio State when they had struggled to do that the rest of the season? And how were they able to pick apart the Buckeyes’ pass coverage for 40 completions and 390 yards?

Buckeye Scoop’s Xs and Os guru Ross Fulton joins host Tom Orr to break down all of that and discuss whether the OSU defense is likely to see more teams running similar schemes this season.
