Box Score: No. 7 OSU Buckeyes 29, Purdue Boilermakers 22 (OT)

Wow, what a game. Anyone that would have ever guessed that Kenny Guiton would be the hero in a Buckeyes victory likely would have been labeled as crazy before this one.

But Braxton Miller’s injury forced Guiton into the ballgame, where he miraculously saved the Buckeyes’ perfect season by leading the team to two TDs and a two-point conversion in the final minute of regulation and overtime.

The Ohio State defense then held the Boilermakers on fourth down, securing the 29-22 victory.

  • deesh

    talk about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat…

  • cmm13

    Also talk about snatching the receiver by the jersey on the final pass to the end zone.

    Don’t blame the ref for swalling the whistle on that one in the shoe.

    I’ll take it.
