Ohio State beat Indiana last week, 52-49 and is 7-0 coming into this game. But the Buckeyes nearly blew an 18-point lead to a dismal Hoosiers team in the final two minutes. The Ohio State defense failed to come up with a turnover or a sack while surrendering 352 passing yards. They are allowing an average of 277.7 yards per game in the air (107th in the nation). They are also missing LB Etienne Sabino (leg) for three more weeks. Purdue struggled in a 44-13 loss at Michigan. The offense should bounce back this week as RB Akeem Hunt and RB Ralph Bolden should get plenty of touches.
