Purdue kept Ohio State off the board altogether twice, once forcing a 33-yard field goal that missed and once holding on a fourth down at the 2.

After the game, they tried to explain what had just happened.

"We came in with an aggressive plan and aggressive approach (on defense)", Brohm said.

After the game, Haskins, head coach Urban Meyer, wide receiver Terry McLaurin, and safety Jordan Fuller met with the media to discuss the game.

As a result, the AP Poll was sure to be shaken up, with Ohio State suffering a major blow. The 5-foot-7 running back totaled 128 yards on 16 carries, his third 100-yard game of the season and second in a row.

Nebraska 53, Minnesota 28: Nebraska built a four-touchdown lead in the first half and survived some nervous moments in the second before pulling away in Lincoln, Neb., giving Scott Frost his long-awaited first win as Cornhuskers coach and ending a program-record 10-game losing streak. "We did a good job of making the quarterback feel uncomfortable with a lot of different looks". They drove 80 yards in eight plays, with a 37-yard pass to Blough and a successful fake field goal for a first down being two of the biggest plays.

"You still have to walk in those white lines and stop me", the senior said. I just want to run the ball down your throat, smash you in the mouth.

The final Purdue score came, fittingly, from the defense, and, more fittingly, from linebacker Markus Bailey. The show, which was a homecoming of sorts for Ol' Crimson, was up +17% from 2017's Week 8 show surrounding Michigan-Penn State.

The first of those came with the help of two 15-yard Purdue penalties.

"I don't know what their reasons were (for not offering him) and that's their fault, because he's an unbelievable player", Knox said. Notre Dame was off on Saturday and Alabama blew out Tennessee.
