Columbus, OH (Sports Network) - Kenny Guiton took over for an injured Braxton
Miller and led Ohio State to a tying touchdown and two-point conversion with
only three seconds to play in regulation before Carlos Hyde scored in
overtime, as the seventh-ranked Buckeyes remained unbeaten with a 29-22
victory over Purdue.
Ohio State played the entire fourth quarter without Miller, who was hurt while
being dragged down at the end of a 37-yard run in the final minute of the
third quarter. He was eventually taken to a local hospital.
Guiton could not muster any offense for the Buckeyes. A penalty in the end
zone gave Purdue a safety and an eight-point lead before an interception
allowed the Boilermakers a chance to run out the final 2:40 and exit Ohio
Stadium with a victory for the first time since 1988.
They left 47 seconds on the clock and the Buckeyes took advantage.
Guiton drove Ohio State 61 yards in seven plays, aided by a pass interference
penalty in the end zone on a third-down incompletion, and capped the set with
a two-yard TD pass to Chris Fields. He then found tight end Jeff Heuerman for
the tying two-point conversion.
Ohio State took possession first to start the overtime and a 17-yard pass from
Guiton to Jake Stoneburner set up Hyde's 1-yard touchdown run. The
Boilermakers could not answer, as Caleb TerBush's fourth-down pass into the
end zone fell harmlessly incomplete.
